White Privilege? More than a third of White students lied about their race on US college applications

White Privilege? More than a third of White students lied about their race on US college applications. By Libby Emmons.

Author and activist Ibram X. Kendi, who upholds the ideas that white privilege is rampant in American culture and systemic racism keeps minorities in states of oppression, shared an article on Twitter that revealed that “more than a third of white students lie about their race on college applications,” according to a survey.

“81 percent of students who faked minority status did so to improve their chances of getting accepted. Fifty percent of students who lied said they did it to get minority-focused financial aid.”

But if white privilege is so prevalent and persuasive, why would white kids feel the need to disguise their whiteness in order to gain admittance to college and aid to help them attend? Could it be that these white students felt that as opposed to giving them an edge, their whiteness was a hindrance to admittance?

The numbers further show that 48 percent of those lying about their race were white male students, compared to only 16 percent of white female students.

Kendi presumably shared the story before he realized that instead of holding up his ideas about race and society in the US, it could be evidence of exactly the opposite of his views, which would be likely why he deleted it. …

Kendi: Critical race theorist, aka anti-white racist

The Post Millennial’s contributing editor Ian Miles Cheong [said…] that white people would lie about being white because they know “that people of color are socially privileged over whites in almost every regard.” …

Stupid lying Kendi:

Kendi has made an entire career on telling America that white people are privileged above all other races in the US, are in control of the power structures, and have more benefits than other racial groups.

Then he shared an article, and a comment, showing that young white people feel that their race is in fact a disadvantage to achievement, and realized, only too late, that this blew up the basis for his life’s work.
