Eizabethtown College is where students are wearing white puzzle pieces to remind them of white privilege. It's the college democrat club that thought this was a good idea, it will make the students more introspective about race.
Being introspective is an easily measured thing, so success is surely going to come from this well thought out ides./sarc


Students at Elizabethtown College this month are wearing white pins in the shape of puzzle pieces to remind them of their white privilege.

The campaign was launched over the weekend by the Elizabethtown College Democrats, who say it aims to make students at the small and private liberal arts college in Pennsylvania more introspective about issues of race, especially in their predominantly white region of Lancaster County.


Talking race is often thought to only be open to people of color, says Aileen Ida pres of collage dems.
Ida the brilliant continues to say that whites continually work to a system of oppression unless they work against it. And the white puzzle pieces represent the struggle.

Discussions about race are often perceived as being only open to people of color, but I think it is just as important for white people to partake in conversations about race,” Aileen Ida, president of the College Democrats, told The College Fix via email.

Ida said white people are continually allowing for a societal system of oppression to occur unless they work against it. The white puzzle piece pin represents racial struggles of all sorts


Ida responded to a question of if all whites are privileged with a yes, but declined to give specifics.
The great news is that all colored and flavors of students can wear the stupid pins, it's campus wide.


Asked if all white students are privileged, Ida responded “yes,” but clarified that she doesn’t think all whites are socioeconomically privileged. Ida declined to cite specific examples of white privilege.

She also clarified that it’s not just white students who can wear the pins, that students of all races should take part to start a campuswide discussion that crosses racial divides.

Will the armband our puzzkle piece is featured on get to be color coded according to the nation that first spawned our "privileged" whiteness and will they do a DNA test so they can color code by percentage of ancestral DNA, sort of like the South used to accord blackness by percentage of blood?

It would be a privilege for anyone of any race to attend this school. Maybe they could sacrifice a year or two of tuition and allow a lowly community college or state school student to attend in their stead.

Good thing they are going so they can come tell us plebs about our privileges.

We all know how constructive and beneficial that is.

Or if their little heads hurt so bad from WP, they should grab the nearest minority and have their parents pay for the minority person to go to school instead of them.
