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.”
