  • Saying ‘America is a melting pot’ is a microaggression, Purdue class teaches

    The College Fix ^ | 4/14/2016 | Anita Lopez
    A business class at Purdue University teaches students the phrase “America is a melting pot” is a microaggression, according to class handouts obtained by The College Fix. That phrase is among at least a dozen examples students were recently instructed on in the Management 301 course. Additional microaggressions listed on the worksheet include: “Where are you from,” “There is only one race, the human race,” “Everyone can succeed in society if they work hard enough” and “I believe the most qualified person should get the job.” These phrases are problematic because they promote the “myth of meritocracy” or represent “statements...

    Another Cambridge University ball has attracted controversy, after students complained the Japanese theme was “enforcing stereotypes”. A number of students have reportedly complained about the ‘Tokyo to Kyoto’-themed May ball, being organised by the university’s Trinity Hall college for later in the year. The ball committee themselves say they chose the Japanese theme to “celebrate the diversity of world culture”.

    A college professor has taken to the New York Times to implore "white America" to go to "war" with itself over its alleged racism. Professor George Yancy of Emory University published "Dear White America" as a "gift" for white people. His challenge: "White America, are you prepared to be at war with yourself, your white identity, your white power, your white privilege?" Yancy, a black professor, told Times readers Dec. 24 that, just as he considers himself sexist, all white people should admit to possessing latent racism. "I can see your anger.

I got to the box office and asked the staff if they had any discounts. The price that they offered wasn’t low enough for...

"Adele sold over 3.38 million copies of her album '25' and the media is praising her as if Adele's success has everything to do with talent," reads the petition, written by Rhianna Jones. "Rather, it's her white privilege that has put her on top," it declares. The petitioners also "demand that Adele donates her money to African-American causes such as #Blacklivesmatter." It's not clear why exactly the petition is also...

That, at least, was the victorious argument of the intellectual heavyweights of Concerned Student 1950, who insisted that Wolfe acknowledge his "white privilege" before leaving office in a handwritten - not typed, dammit! - letter.This raises some rather obvious questions, like: What is "white privilege"? Why is it that Tim Wolfe's "white privilege" mattered while that of Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel (salary: $3.1 million for helping men in pads hit each other) and Assistant Professor Melissa Click...

The national survey shows Bush running well behind Donald Trump and Ben Carson, tied for third place in the GOP race with Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. But that is not the most serious problem for Bush in the poll. Quinnipiac pollsters asked respondents a simple, open-ended question: "What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of Jeb Bush?"

    Over the past few months we have heard a great deal about “White Privilege”, a catch all of racial profiling that asks us to entertain the ideas that all the problems in this country is based on a illusory demagoguery of the white middle class. It is an elusive privilege, and all whites have it no matter your background, where you cam from, or even your income. If you are white, you are to blame, period. What is not realized is that the “White Privilege” meme was actually first mentioned by the Weatherman Underground group of Bill Ayers and Bernardine...

Rachel Dolezal said she was disappointed the investigation did not produce any arrests. She told KXLY News, “As a mother of two black sons I would never terrorize my children.” Dolezal claims she was the victim of hate crimes but police suspended their investigation after suspicious letters lacked postal markings.

    What is Islam? The obvious dictionary definition answer is that it’s a religion, but legally speaking it actually enjoys all of the advantages of race, religion and culture with none of the disadvantages. Islam is a religion when mandating that employers accommodate the hijab, but when it comes time to bring it into the schools, places that are legally hostile to religion, American students are taught about Islam, visit mosques and even wear burkas and recite Islamic prayers to learn about another culture. Criticism of Islam is denounced as racist even though the one thing that Islam clearly isn’t is...

CityLab noted the study's starkest findings in the PolicyLink study: San Francisco is predicted to be the "whitest county" in the Bay Area by the year 2040. San Francisco is the only county in the Bay Area that is becoming less diverse; surrounding counties are becoming more diverse as soaring rent prices continue to drive people into other cities and towns. "It's startling because the city's diversity and identity as a progressive, inclusive city is seriously at-risk," Sarah Treuhaft,...

Many people believe that white privilege is a tool that is used to make white Americans feel guilty about their success by claiming that the mere fact that they were born with white skin gave them an upper hand in life (especially white heterosexual males). Once made to feel guilty, the white individuals soon begin to hate themselves for...

Mr. Rifkin’s lesson will ask students to look at African American scientists of the past. The assignment asks the question, “Why, percentage-wise, are there dramatically fewer black physicists than black Americans? Is it because black students are not interested in physics? Not capable? Something else?” Oddly, Rifkin’s curriculum specifically bans studying any other minorities but African Americans. “We do this,” the lesson explains, “because it’s a particularly illustrative example; we aren’t going to directly address other scientific minorities, and there...

Irigaray, who describes herself as a "Feminist Philosopher," wrote her thoughts in the 1987 book Parler n’est jamais neutre. The quote was listed proudly recently by her current employer, The European Graduate School, as a cutting-edge example of their faculty's thinking. The quote itself is as incoherent as it sounds, but we have decided to post it in its entirety below to make certain that all context is given: "Is E=McČ a sexed...

    Privilege is a new Cargo Cult The concept of "Privilege" has been bouncing around in the back of my mind since I first heard of it. The concept is so ridiculous on the surface that I simply passed it off as race hustlers looking for a new revenue stream. However, it finally came to me: Privilege is a religion, a resurgence of the Cargo Cult of the South Pacific. During WWII, primitive Melanesian tribesmen saw (mostly) white men bringing enormous quantities of manufactured materials, "Cargo," through their home areas. Lacking in any grounding in technology they imagined that the Cargo...

    The concept of white privilege remains controversial in the same way people still argue about climate change. A small, increasingly-fringe faction might argue that it doesn't exist at all. Another broad, more conservative group might concede that it does, technically, exist, but still disagree about what it means, whether it's important and what, if anything, we can do about it. Still, many others would argue that acknowledging and working to understand it is an important step toward fixing the problem -- in the case of white privilege, the problem being compounded, inter-generational inequality that, although sometimes subtle, is still present...

    One of the current liberal cliches tells us “whites” are privileged. The color of their skin evidently bestows benefits others do not receive. They are therefore supposed to be grateful and defer to those who are less fortunate. But in what does this “privilege” consist? Yes, whites have not been discriminated against the way African-Americans have. They have not been denied jobs or forced to drink from separate fountains because of the pigmentation of their epidermis. This is surely an advantage — but how big an advantage? Charges of white privilege make it sound as if every Caucasian is automatically...

And today, he wins the “Best Fox News Guest Appearance” award for his epic takedown of the Left’s latest PC craze: White Privilege. This morning on Fox and Friends, Schlichter eviscerated the “Check Your Privilege” movement in an instant-classic interview with Tucker Carlson. WATCH:

    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." Harvard’s 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 doesn’t seem preposterous enough, the school also wants to move toward training...

    The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, the University of Wisconsin System, and the City of Madison recently held a contest in which educators competed with one another to see who could say the craziest, most offensive things. Or, at least, you could be forgiven for thinking that after watching the following video. Anyone walking into something billed as a “white privilege conference,” however, should probably know they are about to enter the Twilight Zone. Watch this Shocking Video

    Administration officials at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University have reached an agreement with student activists to force “mandatory power and privilege training” on incoming students during orientation. The group, which calls itself “HKS Speaks Out,” will have a meeting this week with the dean of the Kennedy School, David T. Ellwood, to discuss the funding for the compulsory training and to “make sure this training is institutionalized” throughout the school, reports Campus Reform. “We have exciting news to share,” states a recent post on the group’s Tumblr page. “[T]he administration has officially expressed its desire...

    Attacking white privilege appears to be the latest campus craze. After reading this Mediaite article on a taxpayer funded white privilege conference in Wisconsin, you are probably going to wish that we could return to the days when eating goldfish was all the rage. Footage of the White Privilege Conference, obtained by the Education Action Group, features a variety of speakers and organizers confirming cancerous biases by issuing one reckless and tasteless statement after the next.

    “Privilege” is a word that’s been tossed around a lot lately. But if you’re wondering about its origin, look no further than Peggy McIntosh, a women’s studies scholar at Wellesley College. Before Princeton freshman Tal Fortgang “Checked His Privilege” at the suggestion of his university professors, McIntosh wrote a paper in 1988 entitled “White Privilege and Male Privilege: A Personal Account of Coming to See Correspondences Through Work in Women’s Studies.”

    If you plan to attend Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, better get oriented for your orientation; you may be privileged. But don’t worry; there’s always room for spiritual growth. The school is adding a class titled “Checking Your Privilege 101” because of pressure from student activists, and that class will be part of your orientation! Lucky you! Reetu Mody, a first-year masters student in public policy and a campus activist, exclaimed, “We’re at one of the most powerful institutions in the world, yet we never critically examine power and privilege and what it means to have access to this power....

    Conservative radio host and blogger Stacy Washington responds to the White Privilege Conference 2014 attendees. Warning: This is a very powerful message by a powerful young woman. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LT11g8W524"An open letter to the White Privilege Conference 2014 attendees; I’m in a state of shock right now. According to your conference, the accomplishments of my family going back generations simply do not exist. Allow me to explain. You see I am black.

    Liberals have a new word for what normal people call “success.” They call it “privilege,” as if a happy, prosperous life is the result of some magic process related to where your great-great-great-grandfather came from. It’s the latest leftist argument tactic, which means it is a tactic designed to prevent any argument and to beat you into rhetorical submission. Conservatives, don’t play their game. It’s easy to see that this notion that accomplishment comes not from hard work but from some mysterious force, operating out there in the ether, is essential to liberal thought. To excuse the dole-devouring layabouts...

    A video titled “White Guys: We Suck and We’re Sorry,” which argues that white men need to apologize for their privilege and past transgressions, was recently picked up by the Huffington Post. The video didn’t sit well with Glenn Beck, who saw it around 3 a.m. on Thursday and immediately wrote a response to deliver on his radio program Thursday. “I don’t know what we’re doing as a society,” Beck began. “We’re tearing apart absolutely everything and splitting [ourselves] into little groups. Now white men suck, and we need to apologize.”
