San Diego State University Professor Offers Extra Credit For Students Who Admit Their ‘White Privilege’

A sociology professor at San Diego University is offering students extra credit for determining examples of how they’ve benefited from “white privilege.”

Dae Elliott, the professor in question, asked students to fill out a “white privilege checklist” which included examples that students were to check off.

“Try to list at least two more ways you have privilege based on your race,” the extra credit assignment, obtained by The College Fix, reads.

Some examples of “white privilege” include the ability to be late to a meeting “without having the lateness reflect on my race,” or that “my shape, bearing, or body odor will be taken as a reflection on my race.”


Another example includes using band-aids in “flesh” color.

Hey Professor Elliott, allow us to introduce you to a fancy new product offered by the band-aid brand. They’re called clear strips and are sold in any store that provides band-aids.


Perhaps the best example of so-called “white privilege” is number 10 on the list.

“I can take a job or enroll in a college with an affirmative action policy without having my co-workers or peers assume I got it because of my race.”

Affirmative action? It takes a special mindset to turn a program that specifically benefits people of a race other than Caucasian, to say it is an actual example of “white privilege.”


Actress Stacey Dash once squashed the idea that “white privilege” is anything more than propaganda.

“That makes it someone else’s fault,” Dash said in a 2014 interview. “Your life, your destiny, anything you want is dependent on somebody else, that’s not true … It’s your responsibility.”

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton disagrees, claiming during the presidential campaign that she is “swimming in an ocean” of “white privilege.”


She’s swimming in something, but it’s most decidedly not white.

“Where do I start?” Clinton began. “I was born white, middle class in the middle of America. I went to good public schools. I had a very strong supportive family. … I never really knew what was or wasn’t part of the privilege. I just knew that I was a lucky person.”

As for the extra credit assignment, San Diego State University College Republicans President Brandon Jones told The College Fix that it “is another attempt by the Left, and Professor Elliot, to divide America.”

  • the brainwashing continues............resistance is futile ... you will be assimilated and your "biological and technological distinctiveness" will be added to the collective.

  • Entirely sick of hearing about "white privilege" as anyone is this country has the same opportunity to advance themselves through education & hard work, they just choose not to!

  • curious and curiouser...this rabbit hole has more twists in it then a soap opera.
    As a white, heterosexual male, with a job, and a car, and kids, I will gladly admit to such foolishness. I have all my life, afterall, i owned a pet rock at one time.
    I would ask that all ;people of color, red, yellow, white. black, brown all take the same intelligence test,all take the same mental age testing and all take an MMPI.
    All those who test lower than 100 of the IQ test, all those who score lower than a mental age of 15 and all those who fall below the profile for an average well adjusted adult must have their voting rights removed. They must only be allowed in shops that fall under the TABC with a passing adult. the same with movies, signing for credit, a home or a car. They must have monitors on their televisions and computers preventing them from access to sites that may require objective thinking, critical thinking and abstract thought.
    These people must not be allowed into colleges or allowed any higher education excepting on their own dime. The same for any public education past the 8th grade.
    College instructors must be held to the highest standards, themselves re-qualified every 2-3 years to maintain any certificates or licenses to instruct. This should also apply to any HS teachers above the 8h grade.
    Al educators must be politically neutral and if bias can be shown, immediate suspension, and prison time if shown they have been consistently political.
    Sure, I will sign your 'white' privilege paper, as soon as I finish my after school job, get my home work done, get my chores completed and be in bed by 10 pm.
