School Administrators Encourage Students to Acknowledge the Evils of ‘White Privilege’

White students are being indoctrinated about the evils of ‘white privilege’…

In an effort to brainwash students into believing the evils of “white privilege”, British Columbia school administrators came up with a campaign that features white-shaming posters that they hung all over school walls.

The posters bear messages encouraging students to “confront racism” and to not “be blind to the invisible system I am a part of.”    The posters are based on a similar billboard campaign that was started last summer in Saskatoon.

The campaign suggests that white people, even if not racists themselves, still benefit from “white privilege,” and need to atone for the privileges they supposedly benefited from.

“I have unfairly benefited from the colour of my skin,” declares Superintendent of Schools Teresa Downs in one poster. “White privilege is not acceptable.”

If school superintendent Teresa Downs feels that she acquired her job because of the benefits of ‘white privilege’, she should resign and allow someone who went to school and worked hard for the position without being afforded the mythical benefits of having white skin.

Thomas D. WIlliams, Ph.D., Breitbart reports:

Rather than play down the importance of race in favor of common humanity, Ms. Downs and her comrades-in-arms believe it is critical for students and citizens to become not lessbut more race-conscious. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream of “a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character” is apparently not shared by the good folks of School District 74.

Not by the academic authorities, anyway.

School officials reportedly made the mistake of initiating the poster campaign without informing students’ parents, which has provoked backlash among families who don’t believe it is a sin to be born white.

One parent of mixed-race children, Kansas Field Allen, took issue with the poster crusade and posted photos of the posters on social media, which generated a flurry of comments, mostly critical of the “white privilege” campaign.

Some complained of the “blatant indoctrination” of students, while others expressed their consternation over an unwillingness to focus on common humanity rather than racial divides. “Shouldn’t we work on being inclusive rather than exclusive?” a typical comment read.

“I’d say 95 per cent of the people are in favour of having the posters taken down, and that’s from all races,” Field Allen said.

There were others who took issue with it.

In January, the posters were hung in every school in the district in January, reportedly with the agreement of school principals.

“We do understand that this is a discussion about race and privilege, and it can make some people uncomfortable,” Downs said.

The Saskatoon campaign last summer featured a video compilation of quotes from residents.

Saskatoon Mayor Charlie Clark said he hoped the campaign would start conversations that are important for creating an inclusive community where all people can succeed.

“The ‘I am the bridge’ campaign helps to do this by telling stories and sharing the insights of Saskatoon residents on their lived realities with racism,” Clark said in a press release.
