An “American Diversity” course at a Wisconsin high school is making headlines around the country for subject matter some parents find divisive and offensive.
Parents of some of the school’s white students say the material – which deals with the concept of ‘White Privilege’ – sends a hateful message to students.
Namely, that minorities are oppressed by white people.
One parent of a Delavan-Darien High School student spoke to Fox News.
“They’re teaching white guilt. They’re dividing the students,” this parent said. ”They’re saying to non-whites, ‘You have been oppressed and you’re still being oppressed.’”
The parent, who requested to remain anonymous, claims she became alarmed by the content on some handouts that her 18-year-old son brought home from school.
A class handout defines “white privilege” 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.)
Sounds about right to us.
The class has been suspended and is “under review.”
Are you surprised these parents want to deny the existence of white privilege?
Will this class be canceled?
