Appalachian State University students must walk past a “privilege board” denouncing their white, male, able-bodied, Christian, or cisgender privilege any time they enter the Student Union.

The bulletin board is located in Plemmons Student Union (PSU), which the school calls “the centerpiece of the Appalachian campus,” and was apparently put up by a student group last semester, but has been allowed to remain in place to date.

“This makes me wanna go to my safe space!”  

The bulletin board features fliers from the “Check Your Privilege” campaign started by professors at the University of San Francisco, and features memes with phrases such as “Look at all the privileges I haven’t checked.”

  1. These people really wouldn't like me.
    I would make absolutely sure of it too.

  2. I'd "check my privilege" by giving Appalachian State University with my middle finger salute. I will never back down for who and what I am. I would consider it to be my sacred duty to defy them. As for "safe space", the only safe I want is my firearm on safe when I am not ready to fire it.

  3. I see the politically correct postings have made it to the far reaches of our state. What a crock!

  4. Whelp - cancelling the reoccurring donation right now.
    I'll be sure to note this story as the reason

  5. I expect this as common in
    the soviet bloc of the northeast.
    Are you seriously reporting,
    that in traditional southern communities
    communism has completely
    overrun local and state government?

  6. As an alumni of ASU, I am ashamed of what they have become. Several years ago, after making a donation, I ran across an article in which the University celebrated discrimination against Whites through scholarships for which Whites cannot apply and are not eligible because of the 'color of their skin.'

    Of course the letter and email on the subject were never afforded a reply. At this point any and all correspondence from them is placed, promptly, in the round file.

    1. Thanks and you should make sure that you tell them the reason that they will receive no more donations from you.
