Found Friday: Exam Time

It's exam time at Found Friday, and for the high-exam-holidays we post one of the short-answer variety. Like notes toward a disciplinary poem, it seems to me all about
What is true and not cultural,
you know, the dominant is about being in control,
and it's all class, man, and race too,
Cause you said it best in class one day, teacher, when you said
"a microcosm is a reflective view of something that is
representative of a bigger stage (sports are a microcosm of society)"
.

Or could it go another way?

  1. How do we know what is true, she asked?

    Truth isn't subject to cultural interpretation. It's like a part of the dominant ideology, he said.

    She then asked, But if truth is linked with ideology, isn't it affected by class or race?

    Nope, truth doesn't know a person's identity, not really, I mean, it's just a small part of the equation, like a microcosm, he asserted.

    Um...a microcosm is a reflective view of something that is representative of a bigger stage (sports are a microcosm of society). Did you mean a fragment of the equation?, she asked (while thinking that she should get another study partner).
