Seattle high school teacher Moses Rifkin is going to make sure his students learn all about white privilege this year in his physics class.
Unreal.

Moses Rifkin of University Prep in Seattle has decided that his Physics students do not know enough about white privilege.

Mr. Rifkin’s lesson will ask students to look at African American scientists of the past. The assignment asks the question, “Why, percentage-wise, are there dramatically fewer black physicists than black Americans? Is it because black students are not interested in physics? Not capable? Something else?”

Oddly, Rifkin’s curriculum specifically bans studying any other minorities but African Americans.

“We do this,” the lesson explains, “because it’s a particularly illustrative example; we aren’t going to directly address other scientific minorities, and there are many: women, other races, the economically disadvantaged, the physically disabled, etc.”…

…Students will also be required to read, “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack” later in the course.

Its not ok to be white in college. I have personally experienced being taught this subject and its a very weird feeling to be taught that just because you are white you are automatically wrong. This needs to stop!
