Didnt know where else to put this, so decided on own thread.
I teach at a local university as an adjunct; a juvenile delinquency class.
I had assigned a term paper under the (incorrect) assumption that people would know is intended to be a research paper.
Two of my football players (both what I would consider “minority types”) turned in basically the same paper about police brutality.
One of the guys wrote (in the first person) that the reason he does so poorly in school is because he lives in constant fear of being shot and killed by police.
No shit people; it is really that bad.
(I wanted to write “Im sure it has nothing to do with only attending half the classes and playing on your phone the whole time”).
