Not Being Stupid Is ‘Cognitive Privilege’ Now, Which Is Just Like White Privilege

Via Billy

The University of Iowa’s student newspaper has announced the discovery of a special privilege which intelligent people acquire as an accident of birth. This new privilege — called “cognitive privilege” — functions in essentially the same way as white privilege.

The Daily Iowan revealed the discovery of this new privilege earlier this week.

Garden-variety white privilege “is an important topic that deserves a public discussion,” the op-ed on “cognitive privilege” explains, but it is also “prudent to at least mention the wider concept contained therein: that of privilege itself.”

Privilege in general is “the receipt of certain benefits wholly through accident of birth and it is “undeniable that privilege itself is a reality,” the student newspaper explains.


  1. So the irony of the fact that the less cognitive among us don't even know what the word means seems to have escaped them.
    Word salad seems to a pretty popular pass time with these morons.

      Really. :)

  2. Trouble is these people are so stupid they don't realize they're stupid.

  3. The universities left the rails quite some time ago...I keep my back turned to them as they are plowing up tons of dirt and garbage as they finally come to a halt. Education, generally, takes up at least half a states budget..time to cut the education budget by using vouchers for public school and getting rid of the federal student loan program for university. Delete Pell grants from use at the university and grant them for trade schools. indyjonesouthere
