White Privilege in White Plaza


When walking through White Plaza today, I happened upon some fliers with strong statements about “white privilege” and “heterosexual privilege.” The fliers have been plastered all over bollards in White Plaza and near Meyer Library. No group or individual appears to have taken responsibility for the fliers.

Messages included:

  • WHITE PRIVILEGE: every month is white history month.
  • WHITE PRIVILEGE: I don’t need a community center because I rarely consider my racial identity.
  • HETEROSEXUAL PRIVILEGE: I don’t have to come out as straight.

Thought provoking? Eh, I don’t really think so. What do you think?
