    Students exposed to radical leftist thinkers


    (RADIO.FOXNEWS) — A school district in Wisconsin said they will review a high school diversity class that exposed students to radical leftist thinkers and promoted a critical race theory that alleges white people are oppressors.

    The “American Diversity” class was taught to students at Delavan-Darien High School in Wisconsin, Fox News has learned.

    “They’re teaching white guilt,” one parent told Fox News. “They’re dividing the students. They’re saying to non-whites, ‘You have been oppressed and you’re still being oppressed.’”

    well, I cant blame the teacher, its true.

    My father told me at a young age, as a white male I have certain privileges in this country and I need to be respectful and sensitive to those privileges.


    Sage advice.

    I wonder what actually happened?

    It was probably taught, but I wonder what the actual truth is.

    Plus it was a diversity class, what did they expect?

    It's not guilt or self loathing, it's realizing you have some advantages being a white male and not being arrogant about it.

    Not sure what advantages a while male has. I remember when my brother came back from Vietnam. He'd done radio shows there for the military. He went to every radio station in the area and there were a lot back then and he was told to his face that if he were a black woman they'd hire him on the spot. Whatever advantages white males once had in this society, it's long gone. The truth is there is a bigger different between a poor white man and a rich white man than there is between a poor white man and a poor black man. Of course, if people realized that, our country just might get better instead of being divided all the time.
