Making it a duty to admit 'white privilege'

Ohio State University is offering a spring course that teaches students how to identify "microagressions" and address "systems of power and privilege," reports education watchdog The College Fix.

The Fix reports the "Crossing Identify Boundaries" class fulfills a mandatory "diversity" requirement.

Ohio State is home to approximately 66,000 students who pay $27,000 annually to attend.

The university's "Boundaries" class is tied to the left-wing theme of "social justice," where white students are lectured that their race unfairly allows them certain privileges not afforded to non-whites.

Hughey Newsome of Project 21 says white college professors created the idea of "white privilege" to assuage their own guilty feelings.

"But it doesn't make anybody's life better," says Newsome, a financial consultant who is a graduate of Stanford and Harvard Business School.

A second, similar story at The College Fix describes students at a private liberal arts college in Pennsylvania who are wearing white puzzle pieces to remind them of their white privilege.

A third story, from the University of Pennsylvania, describes a black student who felt traumatized by professors who refused to acknowledge their "white privilege."
