Buffalo High School Freshmen Quizzed on Their ‘White Privilege’

Published

on

A Buffalo-based news radio show posted a photograph of a “checklist” quizzing students on their “white privilege” to their Twitter feed on Tuesday and alleged that the assignment was given to freshmen at City Honors public high school.

The assignment titled “White Privilege Checklist” provided “examples of ways white individuals have privilege because they are white” and asked students to check each line that applied to themselves or that they have encountered.

The assignment was sent to Big League Politics by a disgusted liberal after seeing it posted by the radio show Bauerle and Bellavia, an afternoon news show on WBEN that is hosted by Iraq War veteran David Bellavia and long-time radio personality Tom Bauerle.

The assignment began with a paragraph quoting Peggy McIntosh, the Associate Director at the Wellesley College Center for Research on Women, describing “white privilege” as “an invisible package of unearned assets, which I can count on cashing in each day, but about which I was ‘meant’ to remain oblivious. White privilege is like an invisible weightless knapsack of special provisions, maps, passports, codebooks, visas, clothes, tools, and blank checks.”

Students were then asked to read through a series of examples and mark those which were applicable. Examples included, “I can arrange to be in the company of people of my race most of the time,” and “when I am told about our national heritage or about ‘civilization,’ I am shown that people of my color made it what it is.”

Interestingly, the same day that this assignment was made public, an article was published in the Buffalo News complaining about the lack of diversity at the school.

“City Honors’ website claims that the school continues to fulfill its mission of ‘challenging students in an environment that is a racial and economic crossroads unique to our region and nation.’ But how can it do this if City Honors is now overwhelmingly white?” the author of the article asked, noting that 16.4% of the students enrolled this year are black.

The author, an alumna of the high school, concluded their piece by implying that the school is on it’s way to becoming a “perfectly efficient funnel shunting mostly white kids into top-tier colleges.”

Big League Politics has reached out to City Honors Principal William A. Kresse, as well as several other members of the faculty, for comment. One was not provided by time of publishing, but we will update this article if one is provided.

Fairfield University Will Force Students to Take Mandatory COVID-19 Tests in Order to Attend Class

Published

Fairfield University has announced its plans to be operational for the fall semester amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, tossing the privacy rights of students completely to the wayside.

“As Fairfield University plans to Bring its Stags Home for the fall 2020 semester, a safe return to campus life is our most important priority. We want to make sure our community members have all the information they need to maintain the vibrancy of our campus life but do so as safely as possible,” Fairfield University wrote in an email to their student body.

The university plans to force students to report their health data and submit it into an invasive cell phone app, monitor themselves for any close contact with individuals who have the virus, wear masks at all times while attending class, and subject themselves to mandatory COVID-19 testing to be allowed on campus.

Journalist Alex Berenson noted Fairfield’s proposed plans in a Twitter post, highlighting the absurdity and apparent illegality of the scheme:

Berenson has drawn attention to how the COVID-19 pandemic is adversely impacting children, who are losing educational opportunities and having their rights systemically violated because of mass hysteria.

Big League Politics has reported on the growing mass exodus from public schools that has resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic:

A recent poll of over twenty one hundred voters is showing that the future of public schools could be in great jeopardy when communities and states come out of lockdowns across the nation.

A survey of 2,122 registered voters by RealClear Opinion Research shows that support for educational choice is very strong, and that a plurality of parents are more likely to pursue homeschooling opportunities after COVID-19 lockdowns end.

The polling results show that 40% of families are more likely to homeschool or virtual school after lockdowns, and that 64% support school choice.

John Schilling who serves as the president of the American Federation for Children had this to say about the stunning results of the survey:

“Every single family with kids in school has been incredibly disrupted by the lockdowns. With fifty five million students no longer in their normal educational setting, families are clearly considering new options and many are seeing the benefits of homeschooling and virtual schooling. This is the time for leadership and for desperately needed bold reforms to be implemented across our K-12 education system.”

Homeschooling may be the only way for parents to protect their children from the Big Brother “solutions” to the COVID-19 pandemic in the classroom.
