Wisconsin Education Officials Want Students to Wear White Privilege Wristbands
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction runs several programs that heavily emphasize racial issues in public schools, EAGnews.org has been finding.
Some feel that one of those programs an Americorps operation called VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) may go a bit overboard by encouraging white students to wear a white wristband "as a reminder about your (white) privilege.
Geared towards high school students, the program seeks to build capacity in schools and districts serving low-income families to develop an effective, sustainable, research-based program of family-school-community partnerships, according to its Facebook page.
That sounds reasonable enough.

What if the kids quickly turn them into “white pride” wristbands? The educrats won’t know what to do....
Good idea, but they’ve got it backwards - the “privilege” is all in favor of Blacks nowadays.
100% racism. The leftists are sexualizing and racializing society in profoundly harmful ways.
There is no white privilege in Wisconsin. Period.
Gee, this will go a long way in ridding our country of racism. /s
Have the students wear the yellow Star of David with “White” on it and watch the foot-shuffling and throat-clearing by the officials.
I don’t see Obama wearing one that says
“Privilege means I got elected with no experience and never accomplishing anything”
Take the band and cut it up in from of their faces. I say this as a black man who has had enough of this “blame whitey” crap. Stop it, people. Stop giving in to these fascists.
The second stage of genocide is symbolization.
Maybe a temporary tattoo with a FEMA camp number on the forearm.
You're stalking me. Knock it off.
I was thinking EXACTLY the same thing.
I would suggest every white wear a yellow Star of David, with the word “Juden” on it.
“Stop it, people. Stop giving in to these fascists.”
Thank you for saying what needs to be said! Obama is turning every group against every other group in this country seeking to destroy all of us!
I hope someone insists I wear one of these wristbands.
Why dont these students tell these teachers to screw themselves.To hell with this crap.White Privilege.
Ill pay $10 right now to have one and ill wear it everywhere.
Freepers have made some good suggestions here. The students should wear the wrist bands, put a yellow star of David on their shirts, put a fake concentration camp tattoo on their arms, and stand arm in arm in front of the principal’s office and sing “we shall overcome.”
And the non-white students can wear bands-of-color to remind them what sort of living standard they’d have if they lived in the nations where their group is in the majority.
My wristband says “yes, It’s AWESOME being white. Got a problem with that?”
Give a young’un a little KKK hood “as a reminder about your (white) privilege” instead and watch ‘em wail.
“Wear a white wristband as a reminder about your privilege, and as a personal commitment to explain why you wear the wristband.”
Shorthand for “apologize for being white.”
That’s it... I’ve had it. I am now self-identifying myself as Black. I am no longer one of those privileged descendants of the white slave masters.
I feel so different. Finally, I will be able to play basketball... I never liked the game, but today I love it.
Now, send me my free stuff, Whitey.
Hey, would someone please recommend their favorite Rap artists??
One more thing.... if you don’t have a white bracelet hanging around the house, just do what I did. Wrap a pair of boxers around your wrist... hey, it worked for me.
Obama is turning every group against every other group in this country seeking to destroy all of us!
This particular thing isn’t obama’s fault. This kind of crap has been going on in our colleges long before anyone outside of Chicago knew who obama was.
White wrist bands. Hmmmmm....a little too close to yellow stars for me.
in all probability, Adam and Eve were not white.....therefore, the Caucasoid race has EARNED its way to the top...no one gave them ANYTHING!

The problem with race isn't blacks. The problem are these guilty white idiots that bring all of us down.
White guilt moniker to readily ID the “privelaged” for marching to the cattle cars. Man, the Fabians can’t wait. Time is of the essence. Forward.
Even many years ago, the students in my high school would have gone nuts with this.
“European-Americans Are Better Than Other-Continent Americans.”
“Death To Mutants!”
“I’m Not White, I’m Pink. Yay, Pink!”
“I Got The Privilege. You Got The Melanin. Let’s Make Lots Of Money.” (Pet Shop Boys)
Agree. This idea could backfire so fast with high school kids.
What do you wear if you don’t “look” white but consider yourself to be white?
Would they tell a kid that they can’t wear a white wristband because they look black or hispanic? Who decides if you’re “white” enough for “white privileges”?
I think these over-the-top in your face displays of outrageous racist/marxist forced indoctrinations by school officials and their enablers is a wink wink, nudge nudge, for some irate person to take matters into their own hands, giving them the smoldering Reichstag they want so much. Nothing’s too low or diabolical for them.
I say add a red band and a blue band and call it AMERICAN privilege. Then let all AMERICANS wear one no matter what color they are. Period. Watch the stillegals flip out.
What peanut brain came up with this idea?
Isn’t it awesome being white? ;)
Duh. One drop of whiteness makes you white.

Or maybe they could come at this from the other direction and give “VICTIM” wristbands to the non-white students.
Yup — that’ll do wonders for racial harmony. Although of course the left in general is not interested in racial harmony, but a permanent aggrieved victim class.
That's what I told my son - - white, male, well off, healthy, house out in the country, well-supplied and armed to the teeth.... what's not to feel smug about? The whining, greedy, permanent victim class can drop dead.
I love your idea.
Suicide cult religious paraphernalia.
And that is why the best response is not upset or violence, but sticky sarcasm and contempt.
During the HUAC investigations of communist infiltration into the US government, field investigators learned a very useful technique to determine if someone was a bona fide communist fanatic, a technique which applies to all fanatics.
Tell them jokes.
A true fanatic has a very limited and rather brittle universe of ideas, their definition of reality. Anything that does not fit into this worldview is ignored as a non sequitur. Reality for a communist fanatic is limited to The Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital, and likely a few other hard core communist writers.
Humor and laughter are to a great extent a protective mechanism for irrational or surreal information, but they are an alternative set of tools for non fanatics.
Bottom line: True fanatics cannot produce genuine laughter. Reality is either doctrinal or disregarded.
Just as importantly, they cannot mentally deal with others laughing at them. Sarcasm and contempt truly messes with their heads.
They can deal with rage, anger or violence, because these are things described in their holy books. But they cannot deal with those who make fun of their beliefs.
