Playing Favorites

One of the students in my class was among the soldiers sent to Ukraine to help during the Trump administration.

Now, how am I supposed not play favorites and like him especially much?

Not that he needs it because it’s already obvious he’s a spectacular student. The best students are former military. They are disciplined, responsible, mature, and can follow instructions, which is a rare skill in people of any age.

  1. Demonstrated competence is simply white privilege. Even, especially, if the student isn’t white. So the real risk here is, as always, racism. Check the posters in the library and get educated! Plus, patriarchy!

    Or something. If a male student is good at something, clearly there’s a structural problem that needs addressing.
