Public School Teaches “White Privilege” Class
Fox ^ | 1/15/13

Posted on 01/15/2013 11:51:06 AM PST by Altura Ct.

A school district in Wisconsin said they will review a high school diversity class that exposed students to radical leftist thinkers and promoted a critical race theory that alleges white people are oppressors.

The “American Diversity” class was taught to students at Delavan-Darien High School in Wisconsin, Fox News has learned.

“They’re teaching white guilt,” one parent told Fox News. “They’re dividing the students. They’re saying to non-whites, ‘You have been oppressed and you’re still being oppressed.’”

The parent, who asked not to be identified, has an 18-year-old son who was enrolled in the class and became alarmed after she looked at some of the handouts provided to the students.

“I felt it was indoctrination,” she said. “This is a radical left agenda and ideology that is now embedded in our school.”

The parent said the students were taught “if you’re white, you’re oppressing. If you’re non white, you’ve been a victim.”

According to handouts obtained by Fox News, “white privilege” was defined as “a set of advantages that are believed to be enjoyed by white people beyond those commonly experienced by non-white people in the same social, political, and economic spaces (nation, community, workplace, income, etc.”

Students were also given a handout from University of Texas professor Robert Jensen arguing that people don’t have complete control over their fate.

“There is not space here to list all the ways in which white privilege plays out in our lives, but it is clear that I will carry this privilege with me until the day white supremacy is erased from society,” he wrote.

Students were also instructed to visit the toy aisle at Wal-Mart for a hands-on illustration of white privilege.

It will be such a relief when they finally stop the pretense and have a "Kill Whitey" class.

Black racists are always trying to cook up some new crackpot theories such as some melanin nonsense or white privelege.

The fact is that average white IQ is 100, while average black IQ is only 85 tells all you need to know and also explains a lot about not only higher rates of criminality, but also lower graduation rates, academic achievement and financial success.

To put your point succinctly it is low intelligence and poor impulse control at the root of certain group problems. Unfortunately, both disabilities are biologically based and at present cannot be altered. Biology not Psychology may provide the solution.

University of Texas at Austin Professor Robert Jensen Calls Thanksgiving a “White Supremacist Holiday”

His opinion piece, “No Thanks for Thanksgiving“ appeared on George Soros-connected website Alternet on Wednesday. In his article, Jensen wrote how Native Americans suffered because of the “European invasion of the Americas.” He went compared the Founding Fathers to Nazi Germany, asking “how does a country deal with the fact that some of its most revered historical figures had certain moral values and political views virtually identical to Nazis?”

White oppressors seem to be the only oppressors ever to want to get as far away as they can from the violent, hateful, envious non-whites they are supposed to be oppressing. And that’s not even mentioning they’ve twice elected someone of a different race to the highest office in the land, and are, of all races, the least likely to vote based on race, or that they extended the vote to those of a different race before most of their kin in Britain could even vote.

Truly a disturbed being.

Texas, the state, is pretty conservative; Austin is San Francisco/Berkely in theSouthwest.

I started my Masters degree at UT, Austin and the faculty was riddled with Harvard, Yale, Univ. Mich., Univ. Berkely types. The charm of TX U. for these blue progressives is doubtless the money, as TX 's land grant was the Permian Basin and it is a rich school. Because of the progressive faculty, graduates from No, NE, and West Coast univs. were given preference.

The Leftist use of "diversity," is an attack on the actual diversity of mankind. It epitomizes the compulsion driven demand for totalitarian uniformity & the abolition of the very concept of the traditional nation.

Check out the toy aisle for a disparate number of white to black dolls?

Well, maybe this idiot "teacher" didn't know that blacks make up only about 13% of the American population and whites make up about 82% of the population. So, maybe, just maybe, manufacturers are producing the majority of their products to appeal to the greater numbers of those IN the total population - DUH! More importantly, it probably has more to do with their locale, considering I bet if these same kids went to some Wal-Marts in Detroit, LA, Memphis, Atlanta or Houston there would be a disparate number of black to white dolls - again, DUH!

Do these idiots think that an EXACT equal number of each possible race in this country would suddenly make America perfect and "fair?" Ask the black South Africans how that worked out, since they were the MAJORITY, yet blacks were still treated like 2nd class citizens!

Skin color has nothing to do with hatred and oppression! STUPIDITY, is the cause of hatred and oppression; and STUPIDITY comes in ALL colors (see our Dear Reader as an example)!

It’s been true for a long while. I went to graduate school at UT in the early ‘60s , where I stayed at Simkins Hall, now “reflagged” because Simkins was somehow associated with the racism of the early 20th Century. Never mind that Simkins did a lot of good stuff. IAC, was surprised how liberal the history and government school faculties were, and of course the students. Of course, in those days, “liberal” still meant liberal-minded. The professors were open to discussion.

This is called, “social justice”. Almost every college and university now requires a course in social justice for both undergraduate and graduate degrees. It is just as it is described, a course in White guilt.

Why in the hell are they teaching such a course in high school. No wonder our high school grads are so far behind the rest of the industrial countries in math and science. This course is a total waste of a high school student’s time. An A in this course and $8 will get you a $4 cup of whatever at Starbucks. My kid would not have spent but one day in this class. As soon as I saw his/her schedule there would have been a transfer to a class that would provide useful learning.

In 1992, I recognized the oikophobia (avant la letter) at my private high school. Mocking my world history teacher, I joked “At least I’m not a WASP, otherwise I’d have a lot to atone for”. The teacher and half the class thought I was joking. A few students understood my point. They politely warned me not to rock the boat lest it affect my choice of college. This was at Collegiate, arguably the oldest school in America. It has just taken time for the anti-white bias to come out in public. Nowe that we have a non-white President and have been told that the white vote doesn’t matter, they can institutionalize hatred of whites.

That's how they operate. I took a "C" for my research paper on nuclear power in 1979, while my friend, who did his research paper on solar power (in one day), got an "A." We both knew what we were doing. Looking back, I'm glad that I did it.

My homeschooled daughter will be attending our local state college next year. I told her to take an "F," if necessary. She's going to have fun in class.

Our beloved pets have low intelligence and poor impulse control. The difference in their standing: pets don't have opposable thumbs. Thumbs are like guns. They lead to trouble.

As automation continues to expand, more and more people are effectively being turned into human pets. We have to do something about those dang thumbs. We need thumb control! No one but government officers need 27 bones loaded in each hand.

Who's oppressing all the loser countries in Africa?

Africa has one petty dictator after another - unending civil wars - minimum freedom... Come on folks - it's not us. It's not our culture... it's them - it's their culture. They've got a problem - and it's not that we don't give them enough. It's not that we 'oppress' them. Their systems create what you see. Their ideas create their neighborhoods, schools, and crime problems.

It's not us...

It's not just IQ - there's also cultural problems... Black values are not successful at creating wealth or comfortable communities.

Black communities, cities, and countries tend to be violent, poor, dependent and corrupt. From Detroit to Uganda... from Philly to South Africa it's the same. If Americans were able to have an honest discussion of culture and race these things could be looked at... but that's not going to happen as long as liberal elites use black resentment to maintain their power.

If a free discussion were allowed, blacks might decided their problems are worth the trade off. They might decided they prefer violent neighborhoods to having to live a more ‘uptight’ lifestyle. That's fine. Or they could decide imposing rules on themselves for the sake of a more livable community might be worth it. Fine.

What's NOT fine is for blacks to make choices that create their social environment then try to blame others. That's what we have - and it's NOT OK.
