I attend a private university on the West coast. I am majoring in philosophy. I don’t look like a philosopher being that I am not white. One day, while sitting in the department hallway, a philosophy professor walks past me and begins to stare. Believing that he was impressed with the four books I was carrying, I quickly went over in my mind what smart thing I would say if questioned. However to my surprise (or not) he asked if I was a football player.
I would have preferred that he kept it pushing.
