    We're doomed, a Princeton Freshman has been told to, "Check your White male privilege at the door!" by professors. He responded with an essay that has drawn praise and vitriol. Article and link below...:facepalm:


    Going Viral: Princeton University Student’s Bold Response After Allegedly Being Told Repeatedly to ‘Check Your Privilege’


    Tal Fortgang, a freshman at Princeton University, says he has been ordered to “check your privilege” by his “moral superiors” several times this year because he happens to be a white male. In a column in the Princeton Tory, Fortgang takes on the ideology he says ”assumes that simply because I belong to a certain ethnic group I should be judged collectively with it.”

    “There is a phrase that floats around college campuses, Princeton being no exception, that threatens to strike down opinions without regard for their merits, but rather solely on the basis of the person that voiced them. ‘Check your privilege,’ the saying goes, and I have been reprimanded by it several times this year,” the student writes. “The phrase, handed down by my moral superiors, descends recklessly, like an Obama-sanctioned drone, and aims laser-like at my pinkish-peach complexion, my maleness, and the nerve I displayed in offering an opinion rooted in a personal Weltanschauung.”

    This country's fucked. We won't remain united for even another 20 years. It will all end up in another civil war. :facepalm:

    Wah someone said something I don't like. The people who mock the easily offended now have the record on being easily offended. The professor is a fool, but so what.
