Dearest Mr/Mrs Lib,

Please tell me again how the Education Budgets have been cut to the bone and there is nothing left to cut.

Sincerely,

Public high school in Wisconsin indoctrinates students in ‘white privilege’

12:43 AM 01/17/2013

At a small high school in a quaint Wisconsin town, students are learning geometry, chemistry and, of course, that white people have historically oppressed minorities and continue to do so in the present day.

The curriculum on “American Diversity” at Delavan-Darien High School allegedly teaches students that white skin confers a set of unfair privileges, the Daily Mail reports.

“There is not space here to list all the ways in which white privilege plays out in our lives, but it is clear that I will carry this privilege with me until the day white supremacy is erased from society,” declares University of Texas professor Robert Jensen Jensen in one paper assigned to students.

The ideas presented in the course come from a broader academic movement called critical race theory. According to Fox News,“white privilege” was defined in the class 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.”

Another assignment asked students to visit the toy aisle at the local Wal-Mart.

“They were told to go and count the number of dolls that were representative of blacks as opposed to whites,” said one parent, according to Fox News.

The anonymous parent reportedly became disturbed when she perused some of her 18-year-old son’s course material.

“I felt it was indoctrination,” she told Fox News.“This is a radical left agenda and ideology that is now embedded in our school.”

“If you’re white, you’re oppressing,” she added.“If you’re non white, you’ve been a victim.”

The incident was first reported by the conservative Young America’s Foundation’s New Guard blog, where Brendan Pringle wrote,“This course offers a snapshot of a larger trend that has plagued university curriculum for years and has only recently crept into high school classrooms.”

Delavan-Darien School District Superintendent Robert Crist admitted that the parent’s concern “has merit” and presented himself as the voice of moderation in the midst of the kerfuffle.

“A lot of red flags go up in my mind when I look at the materials,” Crist said, according to the Mail.“Ideally, you would want to present one theory that might be way on the left and another theory that may be way on the right and if you find one in the middle you can present that, too.”

Crist said that school officials are evaluating the course and it won’t be taught again until the review process is finished.

He also suggested that propaganda about white privilege can improve critical-thinking skills.

“There are a lot of radical people in our country and across the world,” he said, according to the Mail.“They need to be ideally attuned to some of the different thought patterns that different cultures may have.”

Apparently there is enough to teach racism against white people who are inherently evil and oppressive because they are white.

Next: a class on stoning and beheading, because they are part of the different thought patterns that different cultures may have.
