If you are a white, heterosexual,
Evangelical Christian, male whose parents are still married and can
afford to send you to summer camp – then you are privileged, according
to the West Bend School District in Wisconsin.

As many as 150 students at Badger Middle School were given an optional
“privilege test.” The 55 questions covered a wide range of topics from
sexuality and race to religion and economics. Click here to see the full
list of questions.
Among the items on the questionnaire:
I am white
I have never tried to hide my sexuality
I feel comfortable in the gender I was born in
I have never been called a derogatory term for a homosexual
I ever doubted my parents’ acceptance of my sexuality
My parents are heterosexual
My family can afford a therapist
I have never been called a terrorist
Nobody has tried to “save me” from my religious beliefs
I feel privileged because of the identities I was born with
I have never been mocked for my accent
I have never been told that I “sound white”
I am a man
I went to summer camp
I have never been catcalled
The school district said teachers wanted to spark a conversation on
privilege after reading “To Kill a Mockingbird.”
“If we want our students to be successful when they go out into their
careers in the future, they have to understand that not everyone is like
them,” Asst. Supt. Laura Jackson said.
However, parents who contacted Fox 6 in
Milwaukee say the school crossed the line.
“As a parent, it’s my responsibility to teach my children the difference
between right and wrong,” parent Kim Goldman told the television
The school district plans on addressing the issue at a meeting later
“Some of the language in the questionnaire I can see why, as a part of a
13, 14-year-old eighth grader, some people may feel as though those are
topics that should be discussed in the home and not the classroom,”
principal Dave Uelman told the television station.
But in reality, there’s no such thing as privilege – it’s a left-wing
The truth is that if a young person works hard and takes personal
responsibility for their actions, they can be anything they want and
they can do anything they want in life.
The “privilege test” is a classic example of a public school that has
been turned into an indoctrination center for the Left. They want the
children to believe there’s something wrong with white, heterosexual,
middle class Christians.
That’s not privilege – that’s discrimination.
