Penn State professor singles out ‘average white guy’ in class as a specimen of white privilege

The latest example of college campuses being little more than liberal indoctrination centers was seen recently at Penn State when a sociology professor picked what he called “an average white guy in class” to showcase the unsuspecting student as a specimen of white privilege.

Lost in the mix is that professor Sam Richards was telling every black student in the massive lecture hall that no matter what they do or how hard they work, that they’re inferior to a white man in society’s eyes. Any white man.

“Dude, this guy here. Stand up, bro. What’s your name, bro?” Richards asked a student he singled out. After stating his name, the professor asked the white guy to turn and face the class.

“Look at Russell, right here, it doesn’t matter what he does,” the professor then said. “If I match him up with a black guy in class, or a brown guy even … who’s just like him, has the same GPA, looks like him, walks like him, talks like him, acts in a similar way, has been involved in the same groups on campus, takes the same leadership positions, does whatever it is. If I match him up against that person and we send them into the same jobs upon graduation … Russell has a benefit of having white skin.”

As Richards presents his political views as fact, the camera catches a white student letting loose with a long, sleepy yawn — unbeknownst to this student, he represented the stance of tens of millions of Americans who have grown weary of the constant race-baiting on the left.

The professor then confronts another white student standing before the class with a black student to ask, “Bro, how does it feel knowing that — push comes to shove your skin’s kind of nice?”

With hundreds of students staring him down, the student meekly responds, “I don’t know, it makes me feel sad. Because, God knows I don’t deserve it. I didn’t choose to be white.”

Having sufficiently established his theory as fact, at least in his own mind, Richards then said, “This is the problem with white people — the question then becomes what should we do?”

In the end, this is a member of academia who likely has no real-world experience in hiring practices shaping young minds to accept that one’s race has a clear advantage due to their skin color, while others are victims bound to be held back for the same reason.

Suffice it to say, this didn’t go over well on social media… here’s a sampling of some of the responses from Twitter:
