Our Kids Are Being Taught They’re Flawed If They’re White

The Jan. 5, 2018, Tucker Carlson show on Fox News, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” reported that eighth-graders in West Bend, Wisconsin, were given “a privilege test that identified them for being white or rich or having an intact family.” This is common in schools across the country, Carlson reported. School officials in West Bend argued that privilege education is important to “enable the students to succeed in their careers.”

The officials failed to explain how shaming kids who are 12 and 13 years old will constitute a career booster. “For a lot of children,” said one parent, “they don’t even understand what most of it means.”

Carlson challenged the idea that all people of one race are empowered and all people of another race are not. Calling the privilege test “cruel,” he said it shames some kids as being “bad” for things they can’t control. “How is this compassionate,” Tucker asked, “to single out little kids to make them feel bad about their race or their family situation? Why would they do this to children?”

Tucker’s question was answered by his guest, a liberal psychologist. It is difficult to teach history, she alleged, without talking about privilege. People must recognize what kind of privilege they have in society, she explained, “perhaps white, perhaps male.” Positions of privilege “when they are abused can lead to horrible crimes committed [against] humanity.”

Students must be taught to admit their privilege and not to “abuse” it as “they move forward in their lives,” she continued. “Otherwise we are going to raise little boys who end up becoming producers and executives at large movie studios who end up committing crimes against women like rape.”

So if 12-year-olds don’t confess their privilege, they will all grow up to be sexual predators? This individual is admitting that the latest rash of sexual abuse allegations is part of the campaign to demonize all white males.

The school in West Bend is brainwashing adolescent children to confess they are flawed if they happen to be white and male. If this is not an inquisition — what is? The privilege test is a manifestation of the Left’s attempt to promote its racist/sexist concepts of “white privilege” and “toxic masculinity.” It is a species of identity politics described by Scott Greer in “No Campus for White Men” as “bordering on an outright hatred for white people, especially white men.”

A “whiteness” conference at the University of Michigan is designed to help white students recognize their alleged privilege.

The New York Post exposed the Bank Street School, an elite private school in Manhattan that is teaching white students as young as six years old that “they’re born racist and should feel guilty about benefiting from white privilege,” while their black peers are “taught to feel proud about their race and are rewarded with treats and other privileges.” White parents have complained about how their children are taught to think that systemic racism still exists, that they are part of the problem — and that “any success they achieve is unearned.”

The idea that white people are inherently flawed is absurd on its face. The value system that has made the U.S successful as a nation is an achievement of white people, especially white men. White men founded our republic. White men gave their lives to end slavery. Today, whites are largely responsible for the day-to-day commerce of this country. Many black teenagers hold themselves back, in contrast, by deliberately rejecting the values on which this country was founded. Self-destructive behavior by many — not white privilege — is ruining the lives of millions.

The payoff for the Left’s diversity and multicultural agenda is stoking racial discord. Minority special-interest groups are using the banners of “equality,” “diversity,” and “social justice” as a power grab. The intention is to impose their agenda on the white majority. {snip}
