Wisconsin School Teaches “White Privilege” to Students

A high school in Wisconsin is teaching white guilt to students in latest critical race theory class. The school teaches if you’re white, you’re an oppressor. If you’re a minority, you’re a victim.
Todd Starnes at FOX News reported:

A school district in Wisconsin said they will review a high school diversity class that exposed students to radical leftist thinkers and promoted a critical race theory that alleges white people are oppressors.

The “American Diversity” class was taught to students at Delavan-Darien High School in Wisconsin, Fox News has learned.

“They’re teaching white guilt,”
one parent told Fox News. “They’re dividing the students. They’re saying to non-whites, ‘You have been oppressed and you’re still being oppressed.’”

The parent, who asked not to be identified, has an 18-year-old son who was enrolled in the class and became alarmed after she looked at some of the handouts provided to the students.

“I felt it was indoctrination,” she said. “This is a radical left agenda and ideology that is now embedded in our school.”

The parent said the students were taught “if you’re white, you’re oppressing. If you’re non white, you’ve been a victim.”

According to handouts obtained by Fox News, “white privilege” was defined as “a set of advantages that are believed to be enjoyed by white people beyond those commonly experienced by non-white people in the same social, political, and economic spaces (nation, community, workplace, income, etc.”

Students were also given a handout from University of Texas professor Robert Jensen arguing that people don’t have complete control over their fate.

    Par for the course. Hand out a Bible – you’re fired, have a personal opinon about faith – you’re fired,
    embrace White guilt – attaperson, embrace victim status – attaperson. With rules like this , who needs rules?

    If I am so ‘privileged’ being white why do I feel so oppressed?

  • oldguy

    The problem with white racism is that there is not enough of it.

    This happened 25 years ago in my B.L.T.-and-Alinsky-infested small-town high school.

    This is not new.

    To this day, the town is mostly EBT-swiping brood sows and their “gangsta” progeny.

    It was a nice country town, lots of farms, burgeoning industry — and then Chicago. The Dems’ engineered an outflux of “emigrants” from Chicago to little towns like mine, and in 40 years, they all became little ghettos. Big public-housing-strewn ghettos. All Democrats.

    When you drive to this one-stoplight town, be careful. After you pass the high school, you’ll have to watch out for low-pants walking sooooooper slow across the street while glaring at you. Resist the urge to floor it.

    As if ya need further proof of the viciousness of the left, consider this. The very concept of future time orientation – sometimes called deferred gratification, sometimes called adult-like maturity – is considered itself as racist. Yes, you read that correctly.


    See, public schools are doing their objective of destabilizing Western-style society quite well.

  • the liberal hatred of white people rears its ugly hate again. where is all that liberal civil rights america’s talk about judging people as individuals, about how we are all the same under the skin, about judging people on the content of their character not the color of their skin. they never believed a word of it.

    what if you taught in a school that black people were racist would that be okay? would the so called civil rights leaders, would the liberal politicans, would the democratic party-media complex say that was okay or would there be massive protests and news coverage? the hypocrisy of liberal america knows no bounds.

    most of the greatness of the united states comes from the accomplishments of white americans. the founding fathers were white. it is necessary to the leftist narrative of this being an evil country that has to be changed to the wonderful doctrine of those two men of color, marx and engels, to make young white people think are inherently evil so they accept the oppression that the left wants to impose on them.

    tell your children they are not evil people, that their race has done wonderful things and is responsile for most the greatest achievements of mankind. the evil people in this world are the leftists no what what race or creed they are.

  • JDR-Taq

    Real fun high school to attend. Tell you what.

    Knock-out game? Heh. That’s 25 years old too.

    Common practice for the Chicago emigrees at my school, in the late 80’s.

    A regular laugh-riot.

    Go to Billboard.com.

    Go to the top 40 Hip-Hop, R&B songs.

    Search “Lyrics” “Title” “Artist” on google.

    It is utter and complete insanity and rot.

    All these years of hate and anger held in their hearts. I just can imagine how they can go on living their lives with this kind of animosity for all these years. Then to teach our children form of hate in place of the goodness and greatness of our History. Yes, there are bad times but to push this for one’s own internal anger. Our children need great teachers black and white on the same page. Teach, instruct, share experiences with common sense and yes, there must be more of the good old fashion A, B and C’s Math and science and the enthusiasm to become great adults and not haters. It is time to become fully aware of what your children our learning and get involved in their day at school. And stand up for descent and instructive learning. Not for some teachers hate and fear mongering agendas.

  • Mad Hatter

    Typical hate being taught by one of the Alinsky teachers.

  • ChillytheAlaskan

    And funded by the taxpayers, mostly white middle class workers. Teaching communism and racial division, promoting a coming race war. Attempting to disarm the citizens to facilitate genocide against whites.. We have real Nazi’s in charge of our government..

    The excuse brown people, and their White Leftist cheerleaders, have come up with to explain away chronic brown underperformance and White success is that Whites are only rich and successful because they’re evil greedy imperialists who raped, enslaved and colonized brown people and stole their resources. And since White people are such evil racists, they’ve brutally oppressed and exploited non-Whites under their control. That’s the only reason brown and black people struggle in America and everywhere else in the world.

    But the wild success of Asians in “Amerikkka” complteley debunks that White Leftist and brown power talking point. Because after all, if there really was a top secret White Supremacist conspiracy to hold down non-Whites, or that the “legacy” of it is to blame for chronic brown failure in America and abroad, then why are Asians thrivng in America? In fact, they’re doing even better than White people. They have higher academic scores, commit less violent crime, have higher GDP per capita and have higher IQs.

    And that last bit gets to the real reason why brown and black people lag behind Whites in America and everywhere else in the world: they have lower IQs…

    The previously mentioned success of Asians in America (and other White majority countries) proves that there is no White Supremacist conspiracy to hold back non-Whites. And Asian countries were colonized by White European powers as well. And Asians also faced discrimination in America several decades ago as well. Yet they’ve still somehow managed to “free” themselves from the “White Man’s Chians”… Why haven’t “hispanics” and blacks done the same?

    The whole idea that Whites are out to get poor and innocent non-Whites is completely absurd and racist against White people. It portrays us as a bunch of evil heartless monsters responsible for all of the ills in the world.

    And besides, the exact opposite is true. Whites are practically climbing over each other to help non-Whites, to give them an artificial boost that they don’t deserve. Even at the expense of their own race. What do you think affirmative action is? It’s guilt plagued Whites actively, legally and systematically discriminating against themselves in order to give non-Whites school admissions, job applications, promotions and all sorts of other government handouts that they didn’t earn. And Whites also push constant systematic demonization against their own race in academia, the entertainment industry, etc. And take a look at who’s doing 99% of the charity work in 3rd world brown countries: White people.

    Stop blaming all White people because your race has a low IQ. Blame Darwin.

  • Lim Lynn

    Socialist Democrat Commie going to start propaganda filled reeducation by opressing White people who didn’t practice racism at all.

  • Patty

    I know people who have attended this school and it took me some years to explain away the agenda of this H.S.

    Now, they are good old conservatives. So, if you know someone who attends these liberals schools or a teacher who has tried to brainwash them. You too can make a big difference.

    Tooting my own horn but this means a lot for you and me. TALK THE TALK, AND REALLY WALK THE WALK, WE HAVE TOO, BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.

  • cavt

    The Obamaites are rapidly running out of time for this course of action. As a white conservative male, I’m already a minority. In SoCal, white people are already in the minority. Wonder if libs will still teach white guilt when the whites are the minority. Guess they’ll have to then teach it in the history dept.

    This is perplexing.

  • Granny

    Funny, especially in light of census data from the pre-civil war era that showed free blacks to own more black slaves per capita than the average white Southerner,

  • Hey_Ange

    This sentiment also runs thru the local community college here in the western suburbs of Chicago. They have enlisted “cultural competence” trainers and have even brought the racist puke Tim Wise to campus to lecture all of us on our privilege. Ironic how many of the “diversiphile” faculty members and administrators take up homestead in lily white areas far flung from the minorities. Yes, diversity for thee but not for me.

  • http://washingtonexaminer.com/article/2518621…………obama plans to surround himself with children during gun-control announcement……..

  • No surprise I had a teacher in college who was supposed to be teaching English grammar, as I said to a friend, “We learned more about racism in America then we did about writing.”

    That school should be called on the carpet NOW. In HI there is a movement by a racist prof named Liulani (sp?) K. Trask, that wants to ban all whites on Hi from owning land, they want to throw the whites out and say HI in once again a royal Kingdom. They teach that whites are racist and evil and also that the tourist industry should be abolished.

    When a school was built to teach HI language ONLY pure Hawaiian children the proposal was deemed as the RACISM that it was and white children were also allowed to attend.

    THe prof herself, I have heard is not even Hawaiian but claims she is.

    CALL THAT SHCOOL OUT NOW- for its racist class warfare garbage!!!

    No Obameephones for white people, you know.

  • where is the civil rights division of the justice dept. when things like this are taught in taxpayer supported schools. oh thats right, i forgot the people in the government agency that was created to fight racism in the united states don’t believe that the civil rights act applies to white people.

    Of the roughly 91,379 Wisconsin soldiers who served the Union during the American Civil War, 3,794 were killed in action or mortally wounded, 8,022 died of disease, and 400 were killed in accidents. Total mortality was 12,216 men, about 13.4 percent of total enlistments.

    What about the descendants of those brave Wisconsin soldiers who sacrificed to end slavery?

    They sacrificed their lives and limbs to free African-Americans. What possible morality would ask them to pay (through their descendants’ guilt) again?

  • Hippies Still Smell

    Where is the recognition of the enormous privileges today’s African-Americans enjoy as Americans? America’s black citizens are the richest and most privileged black people alive– a bounty that is a direct result of the American heritage that is now under attack in Wisconsin schools.

    There were also 3,000 black slave owners in the antebellum United States. Shouldn’t their descendants be locked into the “privilege” pillory, too?

  • Joanne

    The white man is the liberator. People didn’t go to America because they believed the white man there was going to oppress them, but they went there for the freedom to achieve all their dreams – they left oppressive governments. The black slaves were freed many years ago, and they were and are free to return to their oppressive roots anytime they want.

  • sam

    If you’re a white student taking this course, what do you think you’re chances are of getting an A (one of the supposed “advantages” of “white privelege”), no matter how well you understand and test on the propaganda presented?

    I mean, if you’re teaching this class, it would be a bit hypocritical to give white students better grades than whatever non-Asian minorities were in the class.

  • Observer

    Won’t these teacher & educrat libs be surprised when the black thugs coround them up for the trains destined to the death camp or dispatch them Einsatz gang style as the useful idiots of the left scream but I was with you. Sorry idiot your white racist die for your crimes.

  • Ghost

    In “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective and Successful People” they teach Rule #1 is you can’t be a victim.

    Victimhood is the basis for narcissism, crime and overall debasement of the human character. Victims feel entitled to escape Justice. Victims feel no obligations. Victims feel they are owed, and do not feel any reciprocity to contribute. This is part of what goes into the mentality of Flash Mobs.

    Victims are quick to believe Lies that exploit their victimhood, and that is why The Lie is the Single Largest Contributor to diminishing the human- easily leading to remorseless crime.

    whenever I think of this subject, I always picture John Hope Franklin, a black historian from North Carolina since passed away recently at over age 90. Liberals loved him. He always had his nose in the air, he loved playing the role of noble, righteous victim… can you think of anyone else like that?

    “I felt it was indoctrination,” she said. “This is a radical left agenda and ideology that is now embedded in our school.”

    Hello? Did she miss the last 30+ years?

    White privelege is a euphemism for black dysfunction.

  • Tama

    You really shouldn’t give such serious attention to the fulminating ravings of Robert Jensen.

    It only encourages him.

  • Tama

    PS–Think of this as an ideal opportunity for intelligent Walworth County parents to instill in their children an understanding of how to properly confront this sort of silliness. They’re only going to face more of it when, say, they go to college.

  • Such is the sociology of liberty. However, it of course has little merit; other then the White –particularly Protestant– valued autonomy. Although such was not an invention of Whites; but of Protestantism and thus by God. You neoconservatives may be surprised that ‘white guilt’ has long been established; thus the self-inflicted suicide of whites –particularly Protestants– that has marked the Western world and its transplants.

    Homeschooling, anyone?

    Our son, from a two-parent, Christian home: Accepted by a fine Christian University with an academic scholarship when only 16, Eagle Scout, proud American and a fine marksman.

    With foreknowledge about the brainwashed dunces issuing from government schools, he is untouched by their anti-American ways.

    God has blessed him and us in so many ways and we are grateful.

    Homeschool if you can. It is an act of love, and a reward from God beyond measure.

  • “white privilege,” well i’ll be damned thats what growing up in a coldwater flat and the housing projects was.

  • Duane Tamura

    When you make your race more of an issue than being an American, you’re going to set yourself apart from our society. My family grew up in the 50s and 60s. We were one of only two Japanese families that attended our small rural school We were not “Japanese” Americans, we were “Americans” of Japanese decent. I made no issue of my race and my classmates did not either. Since we lived far inland, my parents were not forced into internment camps but of course, they lived with that stigma throughout their lives. Many Japanese families that were forced to move and lost property certainly had reason to be victims. But instead they worked even harder to prove their loyalty and committment to this country. Sure slavery was a blight on this nation but it has worked hard to change its ways. It’s up to individuals to make their way.

  • Dave
  • #44dave…what percentage of crimes are committed by black and hispanics?

  • Dave

    #45 Tommy, your very question exposes white privilege. The fact that you’re assuming the percentage of crimes are greater for blacks and hispanics proves you’re own prejudices, whether or not the statistics back them. Even if 100% of crime were committed by blacks, that does not mean that 100% of blacks commit crimes, and yet our society treats many of its own members this way.

    You can use whatever statistics you’d like to feel better about your own bigotry, but white privilege is a fact. White people in this country, and men especially, have the privilege to NOT be harrassed for being a working man trying to live their lives in peace.

    I am continually astounded by the ignorance and lack of empathy that people on this board have for their fellow human beings.

    The bad part is critical race theory is used to justify importing millions of third worlders into every white country and only into white countries.
    Then if your daughter doesn’t marry an immigrant she’s “racist.”
    This is a program to elliminate my race by assimilation. It’s genocide under the U.N. convention on genocide.
