In a new campaign to reportedly raise awareness of “privilege,” the University of San Francisco is handing out fliers telling anyone who is white, straight, Christian, or “able-bodied” that they are privileged and need to “check their privilege.” The campaign was put together by three professors at the college and Student Life.
The fliers also claim that if you believe that your gender identity and biological gender are the same (that is, if you consider yourself a male and you are biologically male), you are privileged as well.
No matter who you are, no matter what your situation in life, if you have just one of these attributes, you are privileged and need to “check” yourself. So if you are a poor, orphaned Caucasian man who is homeless, you are privileged because of your race. If you are an African American baptist who has struggled through poverty to go to college, you are privileged because you are a Christian and need to realize you actually have it pretty easy.
