    In the latest move of race baiting and divisiveness, a San Diego State University professor has been offering extra credit to students taking her sociology class for completing a quiz to determine their level of white privilege. A quick read through of the list will highlight the stupidity; many of the things she insinuates are privilege are simply the result of living in a country where the majority of people are white and the answer to many of the questions would vary based on where the person lives. It’s amazing how white people are the only race to try and make each other feel guilty for being white.

    Careful, OP, your white privilege is showing.

    The fact that white people think white privilege doesn't exist just shows how much of a problem white privilege is.

    The fact that I don’t know if this is sarcasm makes me sad.

    Also sounds like you think I speak for my entire race, I'll direct you to question 13 on the white privilege quiz

    The fact that it's printed in Comic Sans annoys me more than anything else about this to be honest.

    While "white privilege" is almost certainly a real thing, to a greater or lesser extent depending on context, that list just seems to be mostly "majority privilege" and a black person in Nigeria would tick about as many boxes as a white person in the US.

    Interesting point about the availability of skin coloured plasters (No. 17 on the list).
    A company in the US brought out a range of plasters for people of colour in 1998, producing 1 million boxes. They were stocked nationwide by major retailers like Wal-Mart. By 2002 they had sold a total of 20,000 boxes and the company went bankrupt.

    It's either Vivaldi or Napalm Death. I can never remember which one though.

    So many stupid questions in this quiz. Terrible way of reducing a complex and nuanced issue into a yes/no question.

    I thought that, whites are the only race who can’t claim they’re being racially discriminated against.

    It’s really not a real thing, the closest you could argue would be a privilege based on social class. Also because of efforts to redress past discrimination (mostly in the form of affirmative action) you could argue that if you’re poor you’re best of being a female coloured person

    Without his sarcasm, if he posted his views seriously, you'd probably agree on quite a lot, a vast majority even, he just likes to troll and admittedly is very good at it :lol:

    Wouldn't call that sarcasm. And yes, that's precisely why I put him on ignore, he just wants to troll people, what's the point of bothering with someone like that?
