College Students Given “White Privilege Checklist”

Written by 

From FreedomProject Media:

Extremist “sociology” Professor Dae Elliott at San Diego State University is facing national criticism and ridicule after giving students a “White Privilege Checklist” to help them determine their supposed level of “privilege.” The racist document, which was offered as extra credit, also informs students about their alleged privilege based on “gender, sexual orientation, class, and religion.” 

According to the checklist, you know you have “white privilege” if, for example, you “can arrange to be in the company of people of my race most of the time.” Whether non-white people have white privilege if they can arrange to be in the company of people of their own race most of the time was not clear from the document. What happens if one's race is simply “human” was not clear, either.

Other listed indicators of “white privilege” include going shopping without being harassed, turning on the TV and seeing people of one's own race, being sure that one's children will “be given curricular materials that testify to the existence of their race,” being able to “count on finding the music of my race,” finding food one grew up with at the shop, being late to meetings “without having the lateness reflect on my race,” and more.

Apparently, whoever wrote the document was more concerned with pushing racial division than proper spelling and grammar. “I can easily by [sic] posters, postcards, picture books, greeting cards, dolls, toys, and children’s magazines featuring people of my race,” the document reads as yet another indication of “white privilege.” Seriously.

Having band-aids that match one's skin color is also apparently an indicator of “white privilege.” Being “sure that the majority of my professors will be of my race” is also a supposed indicator, which would appear to prove that the document discriminates against historically black colleges unless students there also have white privilege.
