Theres a tangible value in higher education for embracing leftist theory. Just ask high school and university students attending the upcoming national White Privilege Conference.
High school students, undergraduate and graduate students may earn 1-4 hours of academic credit at either the undergraduate level in Womens and Ethnic Studies or Education: Curriculum and Instruction, or at the graduate level in Sociology, or Education: Curriculum and Instruction, the conferences website states.
High school students seeking credit are required to read Privilege, Power and Difference by Allan G. Johnson as well as Understanding White Privilege by Frances Kendall.
Twenty percent of a students grade is comprised of writing a three-page paper on their personal privilege, where students consider, among other things, how has privilege, in any/all forms, shaped your life? (consider race, class, gender, sexuality, disability, etc.), according to the syllabus.
Another 30 percent of a students grade is comprised of creating an action plan to implement what they learn at the White Privilege Conference into their personal and school life. Such suggestions include:
Starting a student club focused on issues of diversity, privilege and inclusion at school, or a youth group at your church, synagogue, recreation center, etc. Developing a specific workshop you would like to present at school or in some other organizational setting once you return home A film series you would like to organize and offer for your school or community
Many states require teachers to take additional college courses to maintain their teaching certificate. The White Privilege Conference organizers have that covered, too.
For participants seeking clock hours or continuing education units in fields other than education, we provide general [Continuing Education Units]. General CEUs provide a means of documenting and verifying hours of participation at the WPC. Participants are responsible for contacting their employers, professional organizations or governing bodies to find out if these general CEUs will be accepted, the site claims.
This years White Privilege Conference will take place March 26-29 in Madison, Wisconsin.
In addition to public employees attending, taxpayers are also sponsoring the event. So far, the University of Wisconsin and the University of Northern Iowa are listed as sponsors.
EAGnews attended last years conference and reported some 2,000 people from 41 states attended, according to organizers.
I’ll get my Butler to sign me up.
This is similar to the University of Minnesota College of Education doctrine that any student in the Coolege Education who believes that any student in an inner city school can accomplish academic achievement, using real education as a means of social mobility, will not receive a degree from the College of Education. Maybe I should call the place University of Moskva on the Mississippi. Now do they have an equivalent of Patrice Lumumba University?
Exactly WHAT privilege is there in being a white,christian,heterosexual male these days? Did I miss a meeting at the White Power Club or something?
How about if after attending one of these "training sessions" I start a community group with the sole purpose of warning the sheeple out there what absolute and mind numbing twaddle this whole white privilege garbage really is. I wonder how many credits I'd get for that?
Did you leave a forwarding address when you moved? That may be the problem...you are not getting our brochures.
You get to have Lunatics scream at you for 4 years and pretend to like it..
What could be better than that? /S
Community organizing on campus.
Paying for the “privilege”. With your own (or your parents’) money.
Its easy to get really paranoid and imagine that the progressives have all kinds of nasty things planned for whites. The least of all relegating them to second class status.
I read out your comment to my liberal spouse (bless her). We both had a jolly old laugh. What may be the tactic to bring the full light on these elite persons is old fashioned humour. I sat full light, for they are like maggots. For if I, a working class snot nose from the UK, were to tell them of my struggles, they would sneer and laugh.
Once people start laughing at them, they are done for. This will not happen overnight.
A privilege to pay taxes. Thanks.
I taught high school sociology for a couple of years and our textbook was written by Kendall.
Started a lot of discussions with “Here’s another example of what a nut job the author is....now for the truth...”
I say full light.
You missed the last White Power club meeting?
No problems, I’ll send you the minutes of the meeting and a copy of the proposed resolution to bring back slavery.
I had some idiot professor, who is a friend of an actual friend of mine, argue with me on facebook that I had white privilege that caused me to prosper in life (mind you I’ve never actually me this jerk)..
I told him (then living in Columbus, Indiana-which is mostly white), that I and others that haven’t grown up RICH did not prosper by “White Privilage”. That it is B.S, that it doesn’t matter one’s race, I haven’t benefited from anything for only being white. I am not a millionaire, in fact I am just starting out in life and unemployed in this economy (thanks Obama)!
Idiots, I will ALWAYS reject the un-Biblical notion of racism.
- Raised by 2 parents
- Got a good education
- No criminal record
- Get a job due to your abilities
- Work hard
- Pay your own bills
I fail to see what the big deal is. If whites were 12% of the population and blacks were a clear majority I guarantee there would be black privilege. Truth is I know a few whites who were passed over for promotion because a black was required per quota regardless of experience or other qualifying factors. Not as much white privilege today as they want you to think.
These dopes just do not get it.
The first rule of White Privilege Club is that NOBODY talks about White Privilege Club!
P.S. You are NOT your khakis!
I do feel privileged to live in a largely white town that has few problems with crime or corruption. I feel blessed to come from generations of white people with good values.
I also regard white Christian heterosexual men with gratitude for what they have done and are doing to sustain a civil society.
I worked in them dang cotton fields when I was a kid. And I sacked groceries and pumped gas and fixed flats for 50 cents an hour. I wouldn’t have had those opportunities if I hadn’t been white.
Wait a second. There were blacks working with me. Hmmmm. Did I get screwed?
There haven’t been many ‘privileges’ for being white for quite a while; especially in academia.
I just thought of something. Are they going to dump on white homosexual men and lesbians as examples of ‘white privilege’? After all, they tend to be more affluent, because most are not raising children, so they have lots of disposable income. But I guess they are one of the politically protected classes, therefore they CAN’T be part of the ‘white privilege’ group.
Privilege is the new Marxist term for Whitey. Just another villain to steal from.
Pray America Wakes
Suzi..get a grip! The White Lesbians are their own “disabused minority”!
Really? Like Lesbian Alternative Theatre Class was NOT ENOUGH to sink my boys GPA she was from Canada FGS and my boy is like me he can hum for so long but the truth spouts out of his precious little body when extremely provoked!
Messed up his whole GPA and he is a Business Major!
Makes me wanna puke!
I am paying for this crap?
Sounds like “White Privilege” is the result of “Acting White.”
Very nice... thanks for sharing.
If whites HAD BEEN 12% of the population and blacks HAD BEEN a clear majority I guarantee there would NOT be this great country, even with all its faults.
Nothing against blacks-—it’s just that America was FOUNDED by whites who GAMBLED with their LIVES to come here, WORKED and DIED to found this country.
Truth pisses off too many people in this age of political “correctness”, and I, for one, am sick of it.
According to kids I know who are exposed to this crap, the main theme is rather ‘simple’ - just by the fact of being white, you are leaps and bounds ahead in the game of life.
Being white means you never had a cop question you;
never had a teacher give you a ‘look’;
never had a clerk in a store watch you.
It’s freakin endless and very dangerous, imho.
What the racialists would have to do to make me believe “white privilege” somehow gives me, as a white person, some sort of unfair advantage, is to show minorities with equal rates of scholastic achievement, teen pregnancy, and avoidance of trouble with the law as whites. This they cannot do. So they came up with the thoroughly screwy idea that because whites don’t commit crimes, get pregnant as young or as often, and do poorly in school at the same rate as minorities, the whites have an unfair advantage. It’s lib “logic” at its finest.
