Awhile back when I was accused of telling a racist joke I pointed out that the joke is, in fact, a jab , at white privilege. Yes, I recognize that historically life has been easier in America if you were white. But I also believe that white privilege in America today is, at most, a marginal issue. I believe the educational establishment and black leadership have a lot more to do with limiting the advancement of blacks in society thatn white privilege does today.
It's pretty clear the education establishment doesn't share that belief. EAG has a story of a recent gathering in Green Bay where teaching students to recognize their own white privilege was clearly a priority. I would argue that hese are really lessons in white guilt and why you should carry it with you wherever you go. And EAG makes a great point; how does this radical drivel help close the achievement gap between blacks and whites which, in the host city of Green Bay, is substantial?
A 4th grade quiz recently surfaced on the internet that is purportedly from a Christiain school. It's teaching were creationist in nature; creation as taught in the Bible. Several listeners made the point that curriculum is sause for the goose; that public schools have been indoctrinating children into liberalism for decades. Hard to read this stuff and argue with that point.
