A sociology professor at San Diego University is offering students extra credit for determining examples of how they’ve benefited from “white privilege.”

Dae Elliott, the professor in question, asked students to fill out a “white privilege checklist” which included examples that students were to check off.

“Try to list at least two more ways you have privilege based on your race,” the extra credit assignment, obtained by The College Fix, reads.

Some examples of “white privilege” include the ability to be late to a meeting “without having the lateness reflect on my race,” or that “my shape, bearing, or body odor will be taken as a reflection on my race.”

 

Another example includes using band-aids in “flesh” color.

Hey Professor Elliott, allow us to introduce you to a fancy new product offered by the band-aid brand. They’re called clear strips and are sold in any store that provides band-aids.

 

Perhaps the best example of so-called “white privilege” is number 10 on the list.

“I can take a job or enroll in a college with an affirmative action policy without having my co-workers or peers assume I got it because of my race.”

Affirmative action? It takes a special mindset to turn a program that specifically benefits people of a race other than Caucasian, to say it is an actual example of “white privilege.”

 

Actress Stacey Dash once squashed the idea that “white privilege” is anything more than propaganda.

“That makes it someone else’s fault,” Dash said in a 2014 interview. “Your life, your destiny, anything you want is dependent on somebody else, that’s not true … It’s your responsibility.”

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton disagrees, claiming during the presidential campaign that she is “swimming in an ocean” of “white privilege.”

 

She’s swimming in something, but it’s most decidedly not white.

“Where do I start?” Clinton began. “I was born white, middle class in the middle of America. I went to good public schools. I had a very strong supportive family. … I never really knew what was or wasn’t part of the privilege. I just knew that I was a lucky person.”

As for the extra credit assignment, San Diego State University College Republicans President Brandon Jones told The College Fix that it “is another attempt by the Left, and Professor Elliot, to divide America.”
