Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen
Hmmm...do you dislike Spain as much as you dislike the US?
I've never heard of someone taking the more advanced course the next semester after failing the intro course. That's weird. The only thing I can think of is that maybe the person was giving a pretty weak effort in the intro course because the material was well below them.
You originally spelled it "week" before fixing it,so I was going to suggest that you stop getting spelling lessons from poster 'Down In A Hoal'
.It's sort of irrelevant WHY the student failed as we're only addressing the question of whether or not he/she should be allowed to take the next highest course.It looks a bit absurd to me yet I'll probably get used to it after a while
To answer your question: No--not by a long shot,but there's a whole lot of racism in Spain,though I'd guess that most of it comes from middle-aged folks on up,with the older generation being particularly nasty.Jews are often treated like garbage and,though most of us can't afford to travel there,Mexicans are disrespectfully looked down on as jungle savages...as if we were still their colonial subjects......There IS payback,though,as wealthy Spaniards who vacation here are prone to getting their valuables stolen and their teeth kicked in
