"The Professor’s Ten Commandments, Thanks to Notorious B.I.G."

I loved this article, from Inside Higher Ed, although I think it’s more broadly applicable than the author suggests.

What really cracks me up about it, though, are the complaints in the comments. Complaints that this must have been a slow submissions day at Inside Higher Ed; complaints that the article reinforces black stereotypes; complaints that the article should have been prefaced with a warning that it contains objectionable language (because the title isn’t a giveaway?). Talk about reinforcing stereotypes, stereotypes about humorless academics, that is!
