Are white people automatically put on the fast track to succeed in life? A new video being shown to high school students is designed to make them think just that.
The animated film titled “The Unequal Opportunity Race” was shown to students at a Virginia high school.
In the short film, white people compete in a race with black people. The whites are given a ridiculous head start and then as a black athletes catch up, the white athletes are placed on a machine that manually guides them at insane speeds to the finish line.
A grandfather of a girl who was shown the video complained to WWBT. “They are sitting there watching a video that is dividing them up from a racial standpoint. It’s a White guilt kind of video,” he said. “I think somebody should be held accountable for this.”
The school defended the video saying, “a segment of the video was one component of a thoughtful discussion in which all viewpoints were encouraged. As always, we are welcoming of feedback from students and their families, and we address concerns directly as they come forward.”
Stephen Crowder probably said it best. “Here’s my biggest issue with this video: the message it sends to young minds. To black Americans it says: the world is stacked against you. You’re just a victim of life, accept it. Take a helping hand from affirmative action, it’ll level the playing field. Somehow affirmative action will also prevent a premature death, imprisonment, and having children out of wedlock.”
While the video was intended to show things from a black and white perspective, there's no reason why the left's favourite “white privilege” argument can't be applied for others.
The end of the video says “affirmative actions helps level the playing field.”
Ya, it levels it. Levels it like dropping a bomb on it.
