I’m a liberal professor and my conservative students terrify me.
Jason McCormick

Dear Jason

I am afraid you make a mountain out of a mole hill. A college professor teaching a social science subject like phylosphy, has no right to be liberal or conservative in the class room. Your job is to teach the subject matter to the students by presenting the both sides of the issue and let the students decide for themselves. And this of course after you present few guideline about how critical thinking can enhance their knowledge. If you do that you shoudn’t worrie to be on any black list. I am a retired political science college professor and in my years of teaching I had no problem following this concept. Except once, when I tried to induce a litle of my conservative thinking. I learned my lesson.

And now that you are a liberal and I am a conservative I’d like you to explain me something. As a supporter of “Black Lives Mater” how does your phylosophy square with the 700 killings so far this year alone, in the So. side of Chicago where blacks kill each other??? Do those lives matter, or only the lives of black people taken by police while in the line of duty matter.???

However, keep it simple. Don’t present me a PhD disertation about the subject. Have a great day and stay healthy
