Wisconsin Education Officials Want Students to Wear ‘White Privilege’ Wristbands

Wisconsin Education Officials Want Students to Wear ‘White Privilege’ Wristbands

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction runs several programs that heavily emphasize racial issues in public schools, EAGnews.org has been finding.

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.”

Geared towards high school students, the program “seeks to build capacity in schools and districts serving low-income families to develop an effective, sustainable, research-based program of family-school-community partnerships,” according to its Facebook page.

That sounds reasonable enough.

Good idea, but they’ve got it backwards - the “privilege” is all in favor of Blacks nowadays.

100% racism. The leftists are sexualizing and racializing society in profoundly harmful ways.

There is no white privilege in Wisconsin. Period.

Have the students wear the yellow Star of David with “White” on it and watch the foot-shuffling and throat-clearing by the officials.

White privilege? Last time I looked, whites weren't a protected class under the law like blacks.

Take the band and cut it up in from of their faces. I say this as a black man who has had enough of this “blame whitey” crap. Stop it, people. Stop giving in to these fascists.

I was thinking EXACTLY the same thing.

I would suggest every white wear a yellow Star of David, with the word “Juden” on it.

Freepers have made some good suggestions here. The students should wear the wrist bands, put a yellow star of David on their shirts, put a fake concentration camp tattoo on their arms, and stand arm in arm in front of the principal’s office and sing “we shall overcome.”

And the non-white students can wear bands-of-color to remind them what sort of living standard they’d have if they lived in the nations where their group is in the majority.

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


Shorthand for “apologize for being white.”

That’s it... I’ve had it. I am now self-identifying myself as Black. I am no longer one of those privileged descendants of the white slave masters.

I feel so different. Finally, I will be able to play basketball... I never liked the game, but today I love it.

Now, send me my free stuff, Whitey.

Hey, would someone please recommend their favorite Rap artists??

One more thing.... if you don’t have a white bracelet hanging around the house, just do what I did. Wrap a pair of boxers around your wrist... hey, it worked for me.

In the name of political correctness, I think it is about time for the images below to be modified to properly reflect America's multi-cultural diversity, the same way New York City modified the statue of the three white firefighters who planted the flag at Ground Zero in 2001. Then, the "revised" images should be prominently displayed in Wisconsin classrooms.

If I was going to be wearing an ethnic wristband, it would be green for Irish symbolizing Celtic warriors telling these white progressive idiots to take their privilege and shove it where the sun don't shine.

The problem with race isn't blacks. The problem are these guilty white idiots that bring all of us down.

Even many years ago, the students in my high school would have gone nuts with this.

“European-Americans Are Better Than Other-Continent Americans.”

“Death To Mutants!”

“I’m Not White, I’m Pink. Yay, Pink!”

“I Got The Privilege. You Got The Melanin. Let’s Make Lots Of Money.” (Pet Shop Boys)

What do you wear if you don’t “look” white but consider yourself to be white?
Would they tell a kid that they can’t wear a white wristband because they look black or hispanic? Who decides if you’re “white” enough for “white privileges”?

I think these over-the-top in your face displays of outrageous racist/marxist forced indoctrinations by school officials and their enablers is a wink wink, nudge nudge, for some irate person to take matters into their own hands, giving them the smoldering Reichstag they want so much. Nothing’s too low or diabolical for them.

Or maybe they could come at this from the other direction and give “VICTIM” wristbands to the non-white students.

Yup — that’ll do wonders for racial harmony. Although of course the left in general is not interested in racial harmony, but a permanent aggrieved victim class.

And that is why the best response is not upset or violence, but sticky sarcasm and contempt.

During the HUAC investigations of communist infiltration into the US government, field investigators learned a very useful technique to determine if someone was a bona fide communist fanatic, a technique which applies to all fanatics.

Tell them jokes.

A true fanatic has a very limited and rather brittle universe of ideas, their definition of reality. Anything that does not fit into this worldview is ignored as a non sequitur. Reality for a communist fanatic is limited to The Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital, and likely a few other hard core communist writers.

Humor and laughter are to a great extent a protective mechanism for irrational or surreal information, but they are an alternative set of tools for non fanatics.

Bottom line: True fanatics cannot produce genuine laughter. Reality is either doctrinal or disregarded.

Just as importantly, they cannot mentally deal with others laughing at them. Sarcasm and contempt truly messes with their heads.

They can deal with rage, anger or violence, because these are things described in their holy books. But they cannot deal with those who make fun of their beliefs.
