Brandeis Latin American politics professor to have classes monitored for use of "insensitive language".

In his Fall 2007 course on Latin American politics, Professor Donald Hindley allegedly used terms that at least one student found objectionable. Despite his repeated demands to Brandeis administrators to disclose in writing precisely what offended some students in his class, they have refused to tell him. According to Hindley, he explained to his class that Mexican migrants in the United States are sometimes referred to pejoratively as "wetbacks."
