A school district in Wisconsin said they will review a high school diversity class that exposed students to radical leftist thinkers and promoted a critical race theory that alleges white people are oppressors.
The “American Diversity” class was taught to students at Delavan-Darien High School in Wisconsin, Fox News has learned.

“They’re teaching white guilt,” one parent told Fox News. “They’re dividing the students. They’re saying to non-whites, ‘You have been oppressed and you’re still being oppressed.’”

The parent, who asked not to be identified, has an 18-year-old son who was enrolled in the class and became alarmed after she looked at some of the handouts provided to the students.

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

The parent said the students were taught “if you’re white, you’re oppressing. If you’re non white, you’ve been a victim.”

According to handouts obtained by Fox News, “white privilege” was defined 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 (nation, community, workplace, income, etc.”

Students were also given a handout from University of Texas professor Robert Jensen arguing that people don’t have complete control over their fate.

“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,” he wrote.

Students were also instructed to visit the toy aisle at Wal-Mart for a hands-on illustration of white privilege.

“They were told to go and count the number of dolls that were representative of blacks as opposed to whites,” the parent said. “It’s meant to divide and victimize non-whites and condition whites to feel guilty and to be more passive.”

She brought the material to the attention of school officials and eventually to Robert Crist, the new superintendent of the Delavan-Darien School District.

“A lot of red flags go up in my mind when I look at the materials,” Crist told Fox News. “Her concern has merit.”

“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,” he said. “Now you have a well-rounded discussion in my opinion.”

Crist said he believes the class was being taught long before he became superintendent. The course is currently undergoing an evaluation.

“The class will not be taught again until that process is fully complete,” Crist said.

He said the teacher, who is young, used the materials to “stimulate the thought process.”

“I don’t believe he intended to indoctrinate anybody,” he said.

But the material that has been presented to students in the conservative community did concern the superintendent.

“I’m out of an old-fashioned school,” he said. “I believe in helping kids understand the basic objectives of curriculum and not use some radical material to get a student to support some kind of a special theory.”

The parent also reached out to the Young America’s Foundation – who first shed light on the controversial course.

YAF staff member Brendan Pringle, called the course “race-baiting.”

“This course offers a snapshot of a larger trend that has plagued university curriculum for years and has only recent crept into high school classrooms,” he wrote in an essay. “Professors and teachers are increasingly telling white students that they are part of the problem of racism, and are telling black students that they are second-class citizens. This race-baiting technique is an attack on American values and can only breed bitterness and envy.”

At the same time, Crist said schools have a responsibility to prepare students for the real world.

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

But did the teacher cross the line?

“Ideally a teacher is not supposed to share their own viewpoint,” Crist said. “With this type of class, the teacher looks for controversial items like that to stimulate the kids into discussing things in regard to cultural diversity.”

The parent said that’s all well and good – but the teacher only offered students one perspective and were not allowed to debate the theory.

“This teacher has free reign to pick the material that he wanted to use,” she said. “He chose extremely radical left thinkers. He didn’t give those kids alternative information.”

The parent said last summer her son got a job washing dishes – working sometimes 10 hours a day.

“I was so proud of him,” she said. “And then to have a teacher tell you that you have these unearned privileges – that because you are white somehow you infringe on other people’s rights. It’s really just awful.”

My Brother's wife is first Generation Cuban American walked out of one of these classes. But that was a college class. There is NO Place in public education for this racism.

All that signifies is that the teacher didn't portray Castro as the devil incarnate.

Here's the kicker... after all the ruminations about Romney's binders full of women and the token racial minorities at the Republican convention what does Obama do? For his 4 open cabinet positions he nominates 4 WHITE MEN!!! With nary a cry from his base. You cannot make this stuff up.

Do you think we should have prayer in school?

Organized prayer no, but if a child or a group wants to pray that should be THEIR business. I don't see any difference than if a bunch of over achievers got together every day to discuss high level economics. They would be admired and encouraged for it.

But I don't know what prayer has to do with "Whitie he bad" courses being taught in high school. Not in a country were we talk about diversity and have been trying to teach everyone that they are the same. The truth is Liberal policy does more to beat down the minority pysche so they don't feel compelled to compete with Education and Job resources. It's best to convince them they are worthless and get them to live a life on welfare, than to convince them that can be or do anything in this country, and YOU are your only obstacle.

Haitian Americans and Jamaicans certainly aren't waiting for Whittie's permission to over achieve. And as you can tell by one remark here already, Cubans aren't popular with Libs because they refuse to lie down and play Victim.

I don't care about any of this.

It's as stupid as holding up Tim McVeigh and screaming "LOOK AT WHAT REPUBLICANS DO!!!"

Since nearly all the dogma coming from the Republican cult is corrupt and doesn't fly here, I don't blame you for resorting to this tactic. You really don't have anything else at this point.

Why don't you talk about how Republicans are threatening not to pay for stuff Republicans have already signed into law?

"Do what we want or we'll refuse to pay for our own spending!!!!" Idiocracy.

Captain, this is such Fox right winger BS.

For one thing we don't really know how bad this is.

CaptainShuddup says

We all know one person will read something differently or more literally than the next.

I agree that obsessing about it isn't helpful, but it is true that being white is often (not always) an advantage. It's true that for a minority individual, or a woman for that matter to see things stacked against them isn't helpful.

Does that mean that it isn't sometimes true ?

You don't think it's possible to learn the truth without becoming a victim over it ?

CaptainShuddup says

I'm embarrassed for you that you are spouting this BS. Are you literally trying to be a parody of a stupid right winger ?

Plenty of liberals, including every teacher I know in schools dominated by minorities tries to help kids have the attitude that -

You are so grossly full of sh&^, that I wouldn't even know where to start.

Give me a fucking break !

Sure, white liberals are going to be slightly less proud of their aggressive white European ancestors for things like slavery and genocide of native Americans. And right wingers on average are a little more likely to be in denial about some of these things, because it's just as hard to see the faults of your group or your ancestors as it is to see your own personal faults. Hmmmm.

But I'm not apologizing about it, nor am I obsessively focusing on it.

But it is reality. And as you know, reality has a well known liberal bias.

How about them aggressive Asian who wiped out half of Europe with their diseases which carried over to killing off the native Americans. Or many be the Africans who sold their countrymen into Slavery... You do realize in this modern time slavery in Africa and South Asia is still a common practice... but its still pinned to Europeans who abolished the practice outside of Africa/Asia.

By the way, years ago, to meet a teacher credential requirement, I had to take a course that met requirements about understanding the point of view of minorities. The course I chose was a "latino studies" course that was taught by a somewhat radical Laino dude, and virtually all the students were first or second generation hispanic.

I was annoyed at times by some of the focus, and one of the things that I learned at the time was that, at least in some ways, a minority individual, say latino, or black, is naturally more focused on race, and more racist in some ways than a typical white individual who grows up without all of those experiences. But that is because of their experiences of prejudice against them.

This is a very complicated topic, that I'm not really trying to go in to here. But just wanted you to know that I found some of the discussions quite annoying, and when I got a chance I argued with the teacher over affirmative action in law school and Medical school admissions, although I had this argument with him individually when I had a chance to talk to him one on one. He seemed to respect my point of view.

Some of the people who teach these courses, and who look at these issues are a bit extreme. But what you have to understand is that it really is impossible for a white person to fully comprehend their perspective.

Still, I don't deny that sometimes there is a victim mentality out there, of people who don't have the optimism that they should about their opportunities, if they are willing to really work hard.

Most liberals are just as aware of this as the idiots who claim that this attitude is somehow intentionally taught to minority individuals by liberals. That is such a totally offensive crock.

Iwog was right on with this.

Rot in fucking hell Marcus ..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery#Present_day

In Mauritania, the last country to abolish slavery (in 1981),[161] it is estimated that up to 600,000 men, women and children, or 20% of the population, are enslaved with many used as bonded labour.[162][163][164] Slavery in Mauritania was criminalized in August 2007.[165] The Middle East Quarterly reports that slavery is still endemic in Sudan.[166] In Niger, slavery is also a current phenomenon. A Nigerien study has found that more than 800,000 people are enslaved, almost 8% of the population.[167][168][169] Niger officially abolished slavery in 2003.[170] Many pygmies in the Republic of Congo and Democratic Republic of Congo belong from birth to Bantus in a system of slavery.[171][172] Some tribal sheiks in Iraq still keep blacks, called Abd, which means servant or slave in Arabic, as slaves.

If I understand it correctly, he thinks there is no reason to feel bad about what our ancestors did 170 years ago, if there are still people doing it now.

I guess you could say that about any crime. E.g., my grandfather was a rapist, but that's not so bad,... hell, there are hundreds of thousands of rapists running around even now.

Or, my great grandparents were first cousins. But hey, that's not so bad, there are incestuous relations between siblings that sometimes yield children.

I could go on, but you get my drift...

IF I make a generalization about white Americans of European descent
