Skip to comments.Harvard's privileged whites

There is a fad currently infecting academia and it is known as "white privilege." It is part of a philosophy meant to marginalize and diminish the white race. Harvard, a bastion of politically correct idiocy, has taken on the burden of helping to teach the white race a lesson. It now offers an orientation course called "checking your privilege."
Harvards Kennedy School of Government is now requiring all first year students to undergo a course titled checking your privilege as part of their orientation.
As if this requirement doesnt seem preposterous enough, the school also wants to move toward training faculty and administrators in privilege and power too.
This requirement comes after a controversial yet popular op-ed penned by a student at Princeton where he stated the term check your privilege is detrimental to students. Students are being asked to consider how their good fortune might impair their ability to empathize with others. Why is it that we are asking students to apologize for or to analyze their accomplishments and successes?
Harvard is now denying such a thing exists
The internet outrage mill got something wrong? Can it be?
Its true. Despite numerous reports that Harvards Kennedy School of Government planned to institute an orientation seminar on white power and privilege for its incoming freshman, a school spokesperson says the school has absolutely no intention of requiring or even offering such a program.
Not so fast. It's happening, but it's just not under that name:
The school will instead revamp its already existing diversity training for incoming students, according to the Kennedy Schools Director of Media Relations Doug Gavel.
Contrary to one article that has been picked up by others, the school is not planning to offer classes, coursework, or sessions devoted specifically to power and privilege, he wrote in a statement to Boston.com.
With that as a background, I'd like you to meet the Harvard Board of Trustees, AKA the Harvard Corporation

Time to put the camera on these people.
When people start losing their lives, jobs, homes and everything else because of these virulent Haters, they need to be held accountable for spreading the poison that they do.
Leftist Privilege rules
The board is made up of all “Whiteys”. What, no mirrors at Harvard?
It’s hard to see racism when you’re white?
BS, I see it all the time, people hating me because of my skin color. Obama, Holder, Jarett, “Knockout” thugs, etc.
does this mean that all of the white professors in Harvard have to take this course, too?
Yep. They shore be White and privileged all right. Maybe they should teach that course.
There is nothing more “privileged” than a Harvard education. They should dissolve the university immediately and distribute their tens of BILLIONS to the needy.
White Privilege, Belief in individualism!
White Privilege, Belief in personal responsibility!
Oh Noes, They Couldn't do That!
Why, who would condemn and judge all the grubby Little People, you have to spend Millions and Millions to train people to Hate that way!
And let’s hear it for affirmative action.
Screw them, here’s how you destroy the argument. The first owner of a slave in America was a BLACK MAN!
See, equality for everyone.
That's after you get in Harvard.
To get in, it's "checking the box" taught by Prof. Elizabeth Warren.
Maybe white people should be forced to wear monkey masks, oh wait then there would be “monkey mask” privilege. Maybe it isn’t color that imparts privilege. Maybe hot chicks should be forced to wear artificial humps on their back just to make it equitable for ugly chicks.
No, no... See, THEY are lefties. Lefties can't be whiteys. Even if they're white. Only righties can be whiteys. And righties are whiteys even if they're black, Asian or Hispanic. Because no true non-whitey is a rightie, they're just confused (or somebody's uncle).
