The following “Privilege Walk Worksheet” as part of the Acton Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Training, was sent to us after Acton DPW head Corey York reportedly sent it to all employees and forced them to calculate their privilege score.
Are you paying attention yet? This is the world you will live in if nobody stands up to critical race theory. We’re talking about people whose job it is to fill in potholes, are being forced to examine exactly how much privilege they have. Because someone that’s important to understand before they do their job.
For the record, Acton is one of the whitest towns in Massachusetts. The people who serve on this commission could’ve lived anywhere they want, but they chose Acton because they like to live around other white people. But in order to avoid being called racist they’ve bought into this self-hating ideology that reduces a human being to their phenotype, while ignoring all other characteristics.
“If you see a group of people, with who you identify….”
What the fuck does that mean? Oh right, if you’re white and you see other white people, you identify with them solely because they are white. Who cares if you have nothing in common with them or have a completely different background. You’re all white, and that’s the only thing that really matters about you, so shut the fuck up and check your privilege.
There’s so much wrong with this sheet too:
#6 – If you ever tired to change your appearance, mannerisms, or behavior to avoid being judged or ridiculed, or to gain more credibility.
Anyone who’s ever applied for a job or got dressed up to go to work had to do this. It’s literally what you do to survive when you’re a grownup.
#5 – If school and work is not in session during the major religious holidays you celebrate.
Jewish kids get Christmas and Hanukkah off if they want it. The oppression is real.
#7 – If you are taught the culture and history of your ancestors in schools.
The idea that black and brown people are not taught their history in schools is one of the great lies of critical race theory. When I taught that Europeans enslaved black people from Africa and brought them to America I was teaching both black and white history. Same with the civil rights movement.
#25 – If bandaids at mainstream storms are designed to match your skin tone.
This is what real oppression looks like. Non-camouflaged band-aids. The struggle is real.
A lot of these are privileges that have nothing to do with race – growing up in a single parent home, being encouraged to go to college, not missing a meal, not being subjected to drugs and violence, etc.
But at the end of the day, who gives a shit? Some of us grew up more privileged than others. Welcome to reality, where everyone is born with equal rights, but not everyone has equal access. The mere fact that people filling out this survey live in and around Acton and have good jobs working for the town shows you that their previous lack of privilege no longer matters.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are all dog whistles for critical race theory at this point. If you hear people using them just understand that this is code for government sanctioned racism. Your town or city survived for centuries without these groups, and you don’t need them now. In Acton they are required to have at least 70% of members in their commission be Black or immigrant residents, in a town in which just 1% of residents are black. Thus they are severely over-represented. Here are the members of Acton’s board.
Almost everyone on that list is Asian, since Acton is a wealthy town and Asian are the only racial group that makes more money on average than white people. Yet we are supposed to pretend that they are somehow oppressed because everyone who isn’t a straight white male is oppressed in 2021.
If you have to participate in something like this at work you should refuse to do it on the grounds that it’s racist. If you don’t have the balls to do that then enjoy the world that you’re living in, because it’s only gonna get worse as long as gutless cowards continue to go along with it.
