Northeastern University: White men can’t be oppressed

Resident Assistants (RAs) at Northeastern University are allegedly required to learn that white men can’t be oppressed.

According to a screenshot posted online from the Boston, Mass.-based university’s website, the RA training guide makes the claim that “In order to have the experience of being oppressed one must belong to an oppressed category. Men cannot be oppressed as men, just as whites cannot be oppressed as whites.”

“For a male to experience oppression,” the guide continues, “they would also need to be a person of color, gay, disabled, or in a lower social class.”
