The "Wrong View"...

A program proposed at the University of Minnesota would result in required examinations of teacher candidates on "white privilege" as well as "remedial re-education" for those who hold the "wrong" views, according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.


As I've written here before,

Now, here I have to pause and point out a rather obvious fact in regards to "White Privilege".

What ding-a-lings like the above (and the manipulative professors who encourage them) consider America's historical "White Privilege" is not uncoincidentally connected to the era ranging from America's creation (by Whites -that being people of indigenous European descent-) between 1776 and 1787, to around 1975 when America was 90% White.

In other words, "White Privilege" existed in America the same way English Privilege existed in England. Or French Privilege existed in France, or Indian Privilege existed in India or Japanese Privilege existed in Japan or Jewish Privilege exists in Israel and so on and so forth.

If a nation is 90% White, then its political, academic and cultural institutions are naturally going to reflect that reality.
Just as a nation that is 90% Arab is going to reflect Arab cultural outlooks and institutions.

If you were to grow up in China, you might find their history, media and academic outlooks to be decidedly Asiacentric.
But would you be so dense as to suggest that the Asian Race is just a social construct and that it is systemic racism in Chinese society, manifested in "Asian Privilege", that accounts for the total lack of Turkish, Ethiopian or Brazilian Heads of State there?
