Why is the English Teacher Mr. Morgan such a jerkass to Kat?
He's short-tempered and, in fairness, she's rather pretentious at points.
"At points" meaning "The entire fucking movie?"
This troper got the impression that he wasn't very fond of his students in general, and the implication was that Kate had been soapboxing in his class for a while, all while he himself had an ax to grind on the race aspect of their readings (as opposed to Kate always talking about the feminist issues).
Not to mention that Kat, let's be fair, isn't the most ingratiating person herself.
It's also interesting since this movie isn't exactly a social justice-driven movie, that Mr. Morgan calls Kat out on "white feminism" a good ten years before it was a more common thing to do. Kat, while she has a big chip on her shoulder regarding the treatment of women, is ultimately a spoiled, upper-middle-class girl who doesn't have (in Mr. Morgan's eyes) that many problems. For a black man in what looks to be a white-dominated school, seeing kids who cry oppression when they've never even experienced anything close to it (just look at the White Rastas), he's basically calling bullshit. He's the realist.
How did Bianca and Chastity, who had never rehearsed together, do a fully choreographed duet? I mean, I know they were doing the same song, but they weren't doing the same dance. And why did the school just let them randomly change their routines?
