Took both 10A and 101 with him. In all honesty, he is a very nice guy and cares a lot about his students, however he is a very poor professor. He spends close to 30-40 minutes on a slide and goes off on tangents about how his life and experiences relates to the material. Would not be a bad thing if he kept it brief but when youre trying to learn it can be annoying. Grading honestly depends on your TA. It can be really easy to get an A or really tough.

Some advice: Do NOT take Angelica Becerra as your TA for any Chicana/o Studies class if you want an A or want to truly learn something. She spends the entire discussion time trying to agitate the class, brag about her knowledge, or make students feel stupid for thinking a certain way. She also tries to be helpful but comes off condescending. Pick your TAs wisely.

One of the most useless and incompetent professors I have ever taken in UCLA, Professor Romero spent almost 2 hours of class time looking at his notes and powerpoint as a way of lecturing about Chicano/Chicana issues. For a guy who lectures about his research, he just seemed like he did not know anything about it! Yes, I found the material to be interesting but having him as the professor for the class just did not match. I appreciated how easy the assignments (expert reading 10%, 5 page paper 30%, 6-8 page paper 60%) were, but I can't believe that in the end he made a mistake in my grade. It has taken me 2-3 weeks to get my grade to change and at least 5 unanswered emails before he actually did something about it. My grade had reflected that, I did not turn in one of the assignments. But low and behold he lost one of my assignments. Now I understand making mistakes, but the slow process just makes me skeptical that he even cared to change it in the first place.

Advice: If you are looking to take an easy A class, this is the class for you. Don't attend lecture, turn in your assignments on time and hope for the best that he does not make a mistake on grading you.

took the affirmative action course 150, winter 2013.

Romero is quite the advocate. Sometimes i felt (along with several of my friends who took this course with me) that he pushes his liberal agenda on students. Several instances where he makes you feel bad for being middle class. I remember one lecture during the quarter he was talking about the 11 million illegal latinos there are in america and how they should ALL be given citizenship. I dont know about all that.

Overall his class was really boring. You read court cases off a powerpoint and take two tricky quizzes that ull prob end up getting B's on. The take home final is 60%, and we still havnt recieved our grade for the class (its been 11 days already..)

Romero in my opinion is racist towards white people. I really hated going to class because of this, i really did not enjoy hearing his racist agenda. UCLA shouldnt have professors that make you feel this way.

Quite easy class. The topics discussed are very interesting, yet he makes them boring and a burden to read about them. The class has a combination of court cases and a book. Only two quizzes and a take-home essay as a final. Just take excellent notes and go to class because he does not upload any lecture notes.
