Found out the other day the local high school social studies class teaches about "white privilege".

Anyone have thoughts on it?

Is the school sponsored by The Huffington Post?

Lol.

I think it's odd. It is one of the best schools in the state. Majority white. I remember learning about "the glass ceiling". Some studies now show wage discrimination is basically gone when accounting for differences in things.

The issue is less to do with skin color and more to do with 3 basic things.

Poverty, education, and culture.

The kids that grew up in our local tailor Park generally were not successful. Because they grew up poor, with families that did not put education as a priority, and culturally accepted poor behavior. Unfortunately a high number of minorities grow up in similar environments. Something that should be looked at to fix the problem.
