White Privilege in the Curriculum

In Canada, a dark-skinned woman speaks against high school classes on “white privilege” because everybody else is too chicken.

The desire of some servile Canadians blindly and stupidly to imitate Americans is sad to watch.

One thought on “White Privilege in the Curriculum

  1. Shakti on said:

    The issue with such “privilege” discussions in a high school or college setting, or really, in general, is that they are dominant group centered. “Let’s talk about me and my privilege/”I don’t have privilege, how dare you,” etc.

    It is very awkward to be in the midst of some “privilege” discussion as a minority, because people are talking about you or at you but not with you. It is never fun being an object lesson, no matter how well meaning the conversation.
