More white scholars are teaching black studies, and they are finding students (themselves more likely than in the past to include non-black students) more accepting, the Los Angeles Times reported. A Northwestern University professor quoted in the story says: "There probably are students who wouldn't enroll in a black studies course with a white professor.... But it's my view that students are incredibly open-minded. They may at first say, 'I wonder if this person is qualified,' but students want a teacher who performs well, and, at the end of the day, that's how they'll judge you."
