What does “white” do for you?
A professor at San Diego State University — California, go figure — is offering students in her sociology class extra credit on the condition they take a quiz that gauges their level of “white privilege.”
According to the College Fix:
Professor Dae Elliott offered the option to her sociology class students, a “White Privilege Checklist” that includes 20 questions that aim to illustrate that “racial privilege is one form of privilege.”
Students were instructed by Professor Elliott to add up their scores, with a higher score meaning they had a high level of privilege and a lower score meaning they had a lower level of privilege.
Everybody ready for some stupidity?
Here’s are some of the examples that students could place a check next to if they thought the specific example applied to them (WARNING: Most of these don’t make sense):
I can be sure that my children will be given curricular materials that testify to the existence of their race.
Sorry, but where are all these white people claiming that other races don’t exist? Even white supremacists acknowledge the existence of races, otherwise they would have nothing to hate.
I can go into a music shop and count on finding the music of my race represented, into a supermarket and find the food I grew up with, into a hairdresser’s shop and find someone who deal with my hair.
Wow! I can’t even — but — what?!?! Where are you going to grocery shop that anyone, of any color, can’t find what they’re looking for? I wasn’t aware that foods were exclusive to race. This is a really racist example, especially if you take into account the hairdresser part of the run-on sentence.
If a traffic cop pulls me over or if the IRS audits my tax return, I can be sure I haven’t been singled out because of my race.
Oh, sweetie. You need to lay down before your head gets too heavy for your body. The IRS clearly doesn’t discriminate based on race. They don’t see black or white. The only color the IRS sees is green — and sometimes red and blue. As far as being pulled over, just follow the instructions the officer is giving you, and you’ll be on your way.
You get the idea, folks.
There are 17 other similarly ridiculous statements that the students seeking extra credit can check off.
Elliott defended the divisive assignment.
“Only through processes that allow us to share intersubjectively, weigh all of our perspectives according to amount of shareable empirical evidence can we approximate an objective understanding of our society,” Elliott said.
Honestly, I really just think that Elliott likes to use big words because she thinks they make her sound informed. In reality, all this assignment does is prove how radical liberals like to place everyone into different segments of society, because people are easier to control that way.
