My own experiences lead me to believe that people welcome the chance to feel persecuted in lieu of accepting their weaknesses, and that the bias, which does exist, is not necessarily intended as intimidation and does not necessarily manifest as discrimination.
I've never had a problem voicing my true beliefs with [professors]. . . . As long as my timing is right and I'm not intensely disrespectful I can crack jokes at their ideas and flat out call them on trying to BS the class.
My own experience from the nineties was that professors spent too much time in class pushing their agendas
I had one professor who taught a required class on Research Methods in Political Science that was very upset that the American Flag flew at the head of our room because it was "government propaganda meant to assist in our socialization process."
I loved college, but I took a race relations course my last semester that was nothing but a white-male bashing festival that presaged my graduate experience in the nineties.
But other that those two professors, I don't think I was generally GRADED DOWN for being politically incorrect.

If you don't know what white-male bashing is, then nothing I can say can help you understand.

Although I was near the top (if not the actual summit) of my class, I also received NO academic prizes or awards, a singular distinction, for those in the top 10% or so
