I'm a Junior at a state University. I'm currently taking a Microbiology class to satisfy my major/minor. Its the first biology class I've had in about 8 years (didn't take it in high school and my first real class where I have no background in the material (didn't take Chemistry either). Despite that I'm doing really, really well. I'm scoring 10 points above the class average. However, I'm not confident enough to participate in the discussion/questions and answers. I sit in the first row, but I'm afraid to answer a question out of fear that I'll get the answer wrong, and make black people look bad. Like I said, this has never really been an issue before, but its really hindering me in this class. I don't participate in group activities, or go to tutoring for the same reason.Anybody ever have this issue?
