78. You assume the alienation. This is where I part from your view.

I have no disagreement otherwise.

I am a school teacher, in a public school system of about 11,000 teachers. We are in an incredibly diverse student population that really represents the world population in many ways. Roughly 150,000 students.

As many as 90 different nations in our local schools.

We also have ongoing years of diversity training in our schools. The current phase, and next year, focus on white privilege.

I've never heard a single complaint on the white privilege training, and people don't hide their opinions in my school. They don't hesitate.

In fact, DU is the first place I have ever heard the idea that the notion of white privilege is somehow wrong.
