Earning Extra Credit for ‘White Privilege’

Earning Extra Credit for ‘White Privilege’

Dae Elliot, a Sociology professor at San Diego State University has offered her students a chance to earn a little extra credit by determining their personal level of ‘white privilege’by way of filling out a form.

This form was inspired by educator Peggy McIntosh, who, in the late ’80’s, helped popularize the concept of “white privilege”. While ‘unpacking the invisible knapsack’ of her ‘white privilege’, McIntosh listed 50 points to help highlight the ‘daily effects of white privilege’.

If you’re interested, take a look for yourself at this PDF of her points.

Asked about the offer, Professor Elliott told The College Fix via email that it’s a legitimate way to help students see things from multiple perspectives.

“Only through processes that allow us to share intersubjectively, weigh all of our perspectives according to amount of shareable empirical evidence can we approximate an objective understanding of our society,” she said. “It may never be perfect, in fact, I am sure we will always be improving but it is a better response if we are truly seekers of what is truth, what is reality. In a society that values fairness, our injustices that are institutionalized are often made invisible.”

We all know universities and a myriad of other places are a breeding ground for liberal, leftist ideology. However, this may take things to a new level.
