‘White, male, Christian able-bodied and straight’ students are told ‘to check their privilege’

This is nothing short of a war on Western Civilization and those who created it.

A North Carolina university became embroiled in controversy on Friday after a student group posted a ‘privilege board’ on campus which calls on white, male, able-bodied, Christian, or cisgender people to ‘check their privilege.’

Students at Appalachian State University notice the board when they enter Plemmons Student Union, a major campus hub that has allowed the incendiary board to remain in place since last semester.

The board’s existence, which was first reported last year by the web site Campus Reform, has conservatives outraged over what they perceive as the singling out of one religious group as well as the imposition of a political point of view on unsuspecting students.

The board first surfaced last year in a residence hall, but now it has been placed in a more prominent location with greater exposure to students.

  • Madness.

    • I have friends – good, redneck North Carolinian friends – who graduated from that school. No more alumni support from them!

  • They should check their privilege….

    … and take their money and resources with them.

    How many super-colliders has a trans-gender studies freak invented?

      Whenever they meet a ‘cis-gender privileged’ type, a super collision results.

    I just checked it. It’s fine.

    incendiary is right – torch them.

    O.K. folks (I actually dislike this word, but here you have it) this is most absurd; access to an outhouse is now the measure of your whiteness.

    • In the American South, ‘folks’ is a friendly, casual term.

        It does work perfectly with the beautiful, melody-like accent. It is definitely overused in North Toronto by people representing one of the unions (at my workplace). Not to mention a certain POTUS.

        It’s gonna take a long time to heal after obama’s overuse of the word.

        Just remembered, it sounds good when Gavin McInnes uses it. Don’t know why.

        I’ve been using ‘folks’ for as long as I can remember.

          I only find it irritating when King Bumboy uses it to refer to terrorist co-religionists of his.

    White privilege is the latest invention designed to explain away the sub-par academic performance of Blacks and Latinos by invoking ‘magic’ privileges Whites supposedly enjoy.

    They’re basically demanding that Whites act as dumb as Blacks and Latinos. Displaying intelligence, drive and ambition, qualities not all people seem to possess, are now signs of *privilege*. So if you’re White and won’t dumb down and become submissive, then you’re a racist.

    Fifty-odd years of Affirmative Action hasn’t brought Blacks up to speed, so whites will just have to slow down.

    Actually, if one were that privileged one would these loons to piss off and go about one’s daily activities of kicking cripples, fondling floozies and generally ignored people who lack the blessing of whiteness or the special love of Jesus which comes with it.

    If this is what Western civilisation has become, then I must admit that I can find no reason why it should survive.

  • moraywatson

    Check your merit !

    As my son just said, the list isn’t inclusive enough. They need to add the two-armed privileged, the sight privileged etc. The list is never ending…

    • Bladder-privileged.

      • k1962

        Yep. How about not autistic privileged or not depressed privileged or have a car privileged or have to normal parents privileged or rich Saudi prince privileged or no ostomy bag privileged. The possibilities are endless and not limited to white male Christians.

          … nose-breather …


  • The lowest rungs of society cannot be raised so all other rungs must be lowered.

    It’s in the leftist handbook.

  • northofnowhere

    Privileged and proud if it!

    The devil is in the details … like the word “unearned.” If they insist on placing us in a class based on gender, skin tone, etc. then be prepared for the rebuttal. My ‘group’ (Western/European civilization) ended slavery, voted for equal rights for women, defeated the Nazis and communists, put a man on the moon, brought the world automobiles, airplanes, radio, TV, cell phones, sanitation and modern agriculture. And that’s just a start. Go ahead and stack up everything your group has accomplished. And forget any arguments about being oppressed by the colonial era, etc. Take it back to before the colonial era ever began … my ‘group’ figured out not to defecate in their drinking water. Did yours?

    Better idea….FUCK YOU! There, feel better already!

    I figure someday I’m going to enjoy the privilege of breaking my foot off in some SJW’s ass.
