Math and "White Privilege" at Lone Star College

Hat tip Campus Reform

If you are a student at Lone Star College in Texas and thinking of taking an online math class, be prepared to explain your white privilege (if you're white, of course).

"The class, called Learning Framework: 1st Year Experience, is supposed to teach “strategies and tenacity necessary to succeed in mathematics,”and is required of all freshmen. The student said he wouldn’t have minded the assignment if it was a different type of class, like sociology."

I would have turned it in blank. None of that applies to me.
