Isn't the opportunity for a white student to get extra credit over non-white students...MORE White Privilege?



Shhhh...... Now everyone will want to take the test. Can't we get a leg up on the competition? Still waiting for my White Privilege Decoder ring.

No white privilege where I live.

Scroll down to Ethnic Composition.

Nice community though...except for the driving.

I just went to Wendy's for lunch, and remembered this thread.

So of course I whipped out my white privilege card and slammed it into the dirty mexican cashiers face.

Bam!!, got myself a free warm glass of water.

White privilege, never leave home without it.
Ya, but she spit in that glass of water. Why do you think it was warm?

This is beyond stupid. Barring the question about the flesh colored band aid, this quiz determines that anyone who lives in a country where their race is the majority has white privilege.

Therefore, the only qualifier to having white privilege is having skin that matches a "flesh" band aid.

That being the case, should Johnson and Johnson start selling brown colored band aids in Africa marketed as "flesh colored", all Africans in Africa would be guilty of having white privilege.

Like I said, beyond stupid.

do you want to count how many times you refer to AA as "they or the blacks or them " or how many times you clumped blm activists under the same umbrella as the mentals who use blm to cause chaos., can you count how often you just generalize all blacks from one of your stellar articles?
or how many times.... blah blah...


or maybe I'm lying or speaking bullocks...


yes


if you had a dollar for every time you did, you'd be making good money in a weird way... whilst still calling everyone else racist...

They should put that as the Upper Class White Liberal Privilege. Here in LA, they are pretty racist. I had a friend who happened to be Latino and one time when he and his dad was in Beverly Hills, they gave him suspicious stares even though he wasn't doing anything.

Also, it was upper class white liberals that screwed over minority communities by forcing them to relocate to other places via gentrification.

I wanna confess I used to be somewhat anti white and those white liberals are the reason why. They would claim they are for helping minorities and in reality they stab them in the back (I am not anti white anymore though). However, I should tell you many minorities here feel that way.

If liberals are seriously are looking for racists, they should call out the liberal racists first.


Liberals aren't interested in racial equality. They are interested in cheap labor, and staying in power by playing off
every racial group against the others. They may be white, but usually they aren't Christian, Pagan or Athiest.
Just look at Walmart - they pay their employees wages that qualify for food bank handouts, yet profits are high.

Finally extra credit for taking a white privilege quiz. Of course let's not talk about taking a trait based on skin color and apply it to every one of that particular race is the definition of racism, this is A-OK.


What "white privilege" describes isn't a trait. I'm not a big fan of CRT — in fact, I think most of what it has spawned is useless bull# — but "white privilege" pretty accurately captures real world phenomena.


The pathetic list is full of racially leading questions and is in it's self racist. I would think at some point law suits will straighten this out.


So asking questions about the real world implications for personal experiences owing to how people treat one another based on concepts of race is racist?

At the very least, I find it hard to believe that a rational, objective person could honestly doubt that being a member of a majority demographic translates to certain privileges. Perhaps you could give a critique of "white privilege" that isn't just your knee jerk emotional response?

"Racial privilege is only one forms of privilege."

They've got their singulars and plurals all mixed up and they wanna hand out forms. Or form. Or a form. Don't they proof read?

Oh, I was hoping for a number. But unsubstantiated statements are OK too.

Not just libs, there are a herd of conservs that love them some cheap labor. Money is the name of the game and cheap labor and or exporting jobs is the way there.

Liking cheap labor is not racist I don't think that they care what color of the people are that they're able to get work from for low amounts.

Agreed, cheap is the name of the game-I flowed off topic for a moment.

Is this like Academic privilege where because professors say it it is assumed as "truth"?
Like having 50 mental hostages in a room and being able to indoctrinate them with socialist ideology by calling it "higher education"?
Even getting state and Federal money to finance it?
Don't get me started on the Mass Media or the bankers.
Privilege comes in many forms, skin color being one of least among them.

If the point of this is to prove America is mostly white....duh. He should check the dictionary for redundant. It says, "See redundant." @@



And being the ethnic majority conveys certain privileges that is easy to ignore. This just reminds you. Many white folk can read this without being triggered and say "yep... I have all these advantages and I should remember that my experience is not universal".

However, a racist will read this and get defensive. To me, that is the ultimate in privilege: the ability to ignore an issue because it doesn't affect you.

I went into uni. as a mature student. I learned quickly to tell the prof what they want to hear. Keep your true opinion to yourself for the grades. And you're in doubly so if s/he teaches from a book they wrote.

The "professor" should really proof read his/her work.

"Racial privilege is only one 'FORMS' of privilege".

Hahaha! He/She should loose a point!
