I had Professor Decker for Interracial Dynamics, and I did not enjoy his lectures. He is a very nice guy, and is super helpful and easy to talk to after class, but he tends to say "uhm" a lot in his lectures and runs over the same topic/idea over and over and over again... He gets boring fast. However, he is fairly easy, and like I said, he's a super nice guy. It helps that the cluster is taught by 4 teachers, so he's not the only one ever lecturing.

my god, he's a terrible lecturer. it was painful to listen to him for more than 15 minutes. and he seemed a little sassy for me... as for the cluster. it's definitely not worth it. all of fall quarter was basically a review of the same damn thing we've all been learning since 3rd grade. AND THAT QUARTER, I GOT A B. so not worth it. make sure you get a good TA if you decide to take it. makes a HUGE difference. first quarter, i had a new TA that didn't even know herself what to expect from us. terrible experience. the next to quarters i had an awesome TA and got an easy A.

so you're choice, but not my suggestion.

Professor Decker (and a few others on his team) managed to turn one of the most interesting decades in American history into what I have no doubt will be the most boring class I will ever take. The content is fascinating, but I hated walking into lecture in the morning because I knew the professors would screw it up somehow. Decker's lectures are almost entirely auditory, so visual learners will walk out with very little. I find him irritating, a feeling also expressed by many of my classmates. I managed to get an A in the class because of one stellar paper I wrote, but even that paper I can't say I enjoyed. I highly recommend avoiding this class and any others taught by Decker.

Final Grade: 60A - A-, 60B - A, 60CW - inprogress

This class straight up was the easiest suck fest ever. I was bored shitless every lecture. I would always end up just surfing the web, watching old episodes of the Daily Show and Colbert Report, and making jokes about Decker's bald head. Seriously, I felt like CRAP going into the final. When I took the final, I felt so unprepared, but I got an A, so it couldn't have been that bad.

The class is straight up whack. You are suppossed to make "connections" between music, culture, and political science events, which is easy yes, but it's very hard when you have to identify some abstract signifiers. I mean seriously, when analyzing music, do you actually believed they consciously knew what they were doing and had alterior motives to their work? NO!

Oh and the funniest thing is Decker's power trips. Decker makes the least amount of cash of any of the professors in the class (Fink is dept chair, so he makes close to 180k). Decker probably barely clears 65 so he feels obligated to be in charge and assert his "power" so that he can feel good about his bald self.

Seriously, don't take this class, too much stress for too little reward
