A Wisconsin high school is under fire after parents discovered that the ‘American Diversity’ class taught students that minorities had historically been oppressed by white people.
According to handouts obtained by Fox News, ‘white privilege’ in the class was defined as a ‘set of advantages that are believed to be enjoyed by white people beyond those commonly experienced by non-white people in the same social, political, and economic spaces (nation, community, workplace, income, etc.’
‘They’re teaching white guilt,’ one parent said. ‘They’re dividing the students. They’re saying to non-whites, ‘You have been oppressed and you’re still being oppressed.’’
The parent became alarmed after seeing the handouts provided to her 18-year-old son, who was enrolled in the class.
