Minorities get special privileges because of “White Privilege”? Funny, I wonder if Mexicans get “Brown Privilege” in Mexico, or if Africans get “Black Privilege” in Kenya. I’m sure they do. White people should get special privileges in those countries to make up for years of prejudice against them. Yeah, THAT ain’t happenin’ anytime soon. <_<
Are you a minority? Then don’t worry, you can hand in your homework late according to this White Privilege social justice crock of nonsense. Teachers should not be liberals nor social activists. They should teach with an open mind and produce educated students who have core values of their own, know how to think for themselves and become leaders in our country.
From American Thinker:
A professional education consultant and teacher trainer argued at the White Privilege Conference (WPC) in Philadelphia that great teachers must also be liberal activists, and described in detail her goal for destroying the “white supremacist” nature of modern education. (snip)
On Friday, Hackman was given a platform at WPC to deliver a workshop with the lengthy title “No Freedom Unless We Call Out the Wizard Behind The Curtain: Critically Addressing the Corrosive Effects of Whiteness in Teacher Education and Professional Development.” The long title masked a simple thesis on Hackman’s part: Modern education is hopelessly tainted by white supremacy and the “white imperial gaze,” and the solution is to train prospective teachers in college to be activists as well as pedagogues.
I simply cannot believe the dreck I read about white privilege and education. How about being a good student and a great teacher no matter what color you are? It’s not the color of your skin that speaks volumes about your character, but your body of work and the way you carry yourselves. I guess that’s not enough these days. Everyone needs excuses.
