Americorps Tells White Students to Wear White Armbands as Reminder of White Privilege

I assume that the Yellow Stars are coming next [2].

The Wisconsin Department [3]of Public Instruction runs several programs that heavily emphasize racial issues in public schools.

Some feel that one of those programs – an Americorps operation called VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) – may go a bit overboard by encouraging white students to wear a white wristband “as a reminder about your (white) privilege.”

The webpage also offers a series of suggestions for high schools students to become more racially sensitive. They include:

Wear a white wristband as a reminder about your privilege, and as a personal commitment to explain why you wear the wristband.

I assume that this lovely exercise concludes with the expected privilege ritual suicide?
