Distance learning, especially in computer-mediated environments, is the dominant trend in education. Universities fear that they will be left behind or even become extinct if they do not offer online courses (Roblyer, 1999). However, very little is known about effective pedagogy in online environments, much less the power, authority, and control relationships that occur when conversations are not face-to-face. The course described in this article is a Bilingual Education course where participants were involved in extensive writing and publishing of their ideas on the web. Through bulletin board postings, the power relationships between majority and minority students became evident during the semester. Students described their struggles with living and working in a society that, in many cases, institutionalizes racism.
