I found an interesting clips for all student's leaders, please visit:

This clip mentions an essay by Jerry Farber called "Student as Nigger." First published in 1967, this high-profile essay was controversial in its comparison of the relationship between a master and his black slave with the relationship between professors and students. Farber himself was a civil rights activist, so his use of the racist word "nigger" was not intended to denigrate black people; it was employed to add shock value to the article and underline the problems with the education system.
