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.
Mumford & Sons Guitarist Swarmed by Fanatic Leftists After Praising Andy Ngo’s Book
Musicians are terrified to speak out against fanatic leftism.
Folk rock musician Winston Marshall was swarmed by furious leftists after congratulating journalist Andy Ngo on the publication of his new book, “Unmasked.” Ngo’s book breaks down Antifa’s model of attacking democracy and political violence in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere, shining light on the street terror group’s extremism.
Marshall, the lead guitarist of Mumford & Sons, hailed Ngo as a “brave man” in a since-deleted tweet.
Antifa supporters were quick to attack the musician as a “Nazi,” unleashing the hate-filled vitriol commonly associated with the intolerant movement. Marshall’s Twitter feed is largely filled with support for Hong Kong demonstrators, a far cry from what leftists might expect from a “fascist.” The English guitar player’s band is known for songs such as “I Will Wait” and “Hopeless Wanderer.”

Others pointed to the faux social media outrage as mere evidence of the Left’s intolerance and fanaticism.
Congratulations to @MrWinMarshall for showing us, once again, that the people who claim to be "tolerant", "kind" and "open-minded" are the most illiberal, hateful and intolerant around. I'll be going to as many of his concerts as possible.

Ngo has been forced to flee the United States under a constant barrage of Antifa threats in recent months, with the street terror group determined to silence Ngo’s reporting on consistent property damage, anarcho-tyranny, and violent crime in Portland and elsewhere.
Unfortunately, Marshall has since deleted the tweet. It’s considered impossible to get anywhere in the mainstream music industry if you haven’t cravenly bowed before the false gods of ultraliberalism and identity leftism. While Marshall took a risk in even saluting Ngo’s work in the first place, he unfortunately appears to have backed down, to a degree, a sad lamentation of the state of mainstream entertainment and corporate culture.
