WATCH: This video about 'white privilege' being shown to high school students is ironically racist

StaffRebel Columnist

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.

Have any of you ever considered that the video is right? however poorly made it is, it explains the challenges that people face because of the colour of their skin. Do you think that just because we live in a modern age that racism is just a thing of the past? I think I’ve seen enough of this. Goodbye forever.

I don’t support what you say, but I support your right to say it.

I agree hyacinth, cultural/political Marxism couldn’t compete with western culture’s achievements (warts and all) so The Marxist trust turned its western envy into “white privilege” essentially inverting leftist envy of the west’s cultural success into a negative racial stereotype – “white privilege” is therefore a misnomer if there ever was one because this cultural success being fallaciously sold as " privilege" has nothing to with race or the exploitation of other races – it has everything to do with cultural thought process, the exploitation of better ideas, actuation of those better ideas and rewards for success.

Leftist mythology about the forced equity utopia, inevitably devolves culture down to its lowest common denominator in the quest to make underachievement equal with achievement – the historic experiments in this have always retarded any culture built on rewarding conformity rather than excellence – these political ideologies retard their users and thus equity-based collectivist nations always lagged behind success-driven nations – there had been envy since the failure of the first collectivist state – that age old envy of success is now genetic in leftist critical theory indoctrinating and it’s latest materialization is this attempt to defame western cultural achievement as a race based “privilege” .

Utter idiocy, which would only make sense to losers who have convinced themselves that their own deficiency in self actuation are someone else’s fault.

The envy of other races against white people is disgusting. We are no different than any other race. Pull up your boot straps and try to be successful because that is what successful white people have done. I know it’s easier for those who are lazy and expect others to pay their way, but we shouldn’t have to, or be forced to babysit other races because they have no drive. This is where the socialist utopia ends, because as Margaret Thatcher said, to the effect that eventually you run out of other peoples money!

White privilege exists… in the heads of victims.

@jerome white privilege is no myth, you just don’t want to admit it, besides your grandparents only got their land because of the Russian authorities bullying the Crimean Tatars and kicking them off their land
commented 2016-02-11 16:46:47 -0500
This is really sad – the video, not because it shows subjugated blacks but rather that it continues the myth of “white privilege”. I do not feel guilty about subjugated aboriginals in Canada. My grandparents emigrated from the Crimea 100 plus years ago to the Sask. No guilt here.

WTF ! Are NGO’s going back in time and reviewing how the Nazi’s change peoples opinions to fit their narrative…wash rinse and repeat…wow

Lad Reme – their black president is a racist against white people. There in lies the problem! He wants to start a racial war before they try to remove him from office.

Africa is richer in resources than any other continent on the planet, what is holding the black people there back?

There is just one human race and all of us human beings are members of it.
Let us work with what we have in common and not be side tracked into believing one shade of flesh is closer to God than another.
Divide and conquer is raising it’s ugly head.
It is ideas that can be harmful or helpful, not one’s “race”.
commented 2016-02-11 14:44:41 -0500
This video seems kind of odd, coming from a Country that has a Black President.
commented 2016-02-11 14:13:43 -0500
That is propaganda or Nazism but you tell people long enough and often enough they start to believe it how tough things are for them mostly people who are takers not givers react to this .

Daryl again: In fact. that would be a great name for a new national political party. It would run the Liberals and NDP off the road — FIFO Canada !!
commented 2016-02-11 14:02:24 -0500
Daryl: Thanks. I haven’t heard the term FIFO for years. Great to hear it again. More appropriate now than ever.

My sister in-law teaches First Nations children… according to her, the ones who are taught (mainly by their families), crap like shown in the video, are under-performing, and more or less destined for failure…. the ones who are taught that at times the world is not fair, but you can make anything of yourself, those are the ones that are likely to become successful.

VERY Well said Bravo!!!
These whining minorities (all colors) need to wake up and understand what finances their Lazy, Conniving fantasies. Time we have a “White Pride day” – for all the white sweat going to literal waste simply because socialist agenda rides our asses off – and damn anyone who takes insult by it! …like still blaming Caucasian people for enslaving blacks – it was Blacks who sold blacks into slavery – learn your history – get over it!! If it weren’t for our generous welfare throughout history (YES a war was fought by white men to free your lazy asses and still are) – you would never have survived till now. …and this is not a blanket statement – I have some great friends from all colors of mankind – all decent peoples – it is your self-pity which segregates your own selves. Man up and grow a pair – responsibly raise your bastard children – we are sick of paying for your hedonistic ways & your social experiments.
Fit in or fuck off!!

This is the same process they used to destroy PM Harper and anything conservative. They are racists through and through. I was born white but that is because God chose to make me white. But I can tell that I have worked for everything that I’ve had in this life. And back when I grew up, you sucked it up and did the best that you could, under any circumstance! What a bunch of selfish whiners and complainers that are being brainwashed into victimhood. Unbelievable! This video incites hatred against white people, and should be considered as it is, promoting hatred against us.

1. If serving your country for many years and being abandoned by the government when you lose a limb, or,

2. Working while sick because if you do not work you do not get paid, or,

3. Getting blisters and sweating while working hard in the out doors, or,

4. Working and freezing while working out doors, or,

5. Working a second job after hours to ensure you can get your last kid through that engineering degree at university, or,

6. Never collecting welfare or unemployment because you will do ANYTHING to keep the family fed and housed and clothed, or,

7. Always paying your bills on time in order to keep your credit rating up, or,

8. Always paying your taxes on time so the various government agencies can smear you with disdain They are our employees – we pay their salary!), or,

9. Driving ONE ten year old vehicle in order to keep the family fed and clothed and put the extra towards education for your kids – no car payment, or,

10. Not taking a vacation because you cannot scrape the cash together for anything other than a “staycation” …….

If all the above is white privilege then fuck anyone who tells the average working stiff – who built this country from bottom to top.

If you are of another colour and do not do the same I simply say to you – if you had the balls and the driver to get a ticket in one of the trades you can have the same “privileges” that I do. If you are collecting benefits and do not have a health or physical impairment – YOU are your own worst enemy – no matter WHAT your colour is.

Otherwise shut the fuck up and enjoy what us white folks GIVE you.

Because I for one am now completely understanding why the cash economy is growing so rapidly.

I am tired of financing your complaints and getting no thanks for it.

So are the others who have invited you in to this country and watched you sit on your arse and TAKE.

Rant over.

I remember in a Major Canadian City, in the 1960’s, at an indoor inter-school track meet, the organizers (teachers) decided that for fun (?) they would organize and run a 1 lap “walking” race between the Student Council Presidents of the participating high schools. Before the walking race began, all the Presidents were lined up on the starting line. But then, to our surprise, we saw that the 2 female Presidents were lined up to start about 1/3 of the way around the oval track (of a 1 lap walking race). Needless to say the 2 girls came in first and second and the winner awarded a trophy. The most common reaction from my fellow student friends, both male and female, was to think "What was that all about?’

Yaaaaaaaayyyyy. The white people won the race!!! :))))
Sorry for the spoiler. :-/

I don’t root for people who fabricate victimization.

when reality doesn’t fit into the poor me victimhood narrative then all they have left is obscure propaganda that reinforces convenient stereotypes to keep the so called oppressed enslaved to their government overlords. That whole video has one purpose, same as a union, keep their minions comatose and compliant on a steady diet of half truths and outright lies so that the elite at the top keep raking in the money

WTF is all I have to say. I guess we will always be in the same place with education like this. Sadness
commented 2016-02-11 11:40:30 -0500
The video, in my opinion, serves to exacerbate and then reinforce and differences between whites and non-whites. And Affirmative Action serves to create a culture where those differences are never forgotten … in other words, Affirmative Action also reinforces the segregation. But then what do I know, I am a white Anglo-Saxon male, except I don’t have any of that white privilege that is always talked about.
commented 2016-02-11 11:39:54 -0500
Had I known being white gave me so much privilege I would not have spent the last 10 years working 100 hour weeks.

ah yes…the perpetual victim. funny how easily the whites enslaved the black man and then freed him at their leisure.
