White College Professor Refuses to Acknowledge “Privilege,” Black Students Freak Out

Two tanks — one Arab, one Israeli — are crossing the desert in opposite directions during blinding a sandstorm. When they collide, the hatch of the Arab tank flies open, and a commando shouts, “We surrender!” The hatch of the Israeli tank opens, and a figure emerges crying, “Whiplash!”

This ethnic joke is no longer tellable due to recent advances in the art of political correctness, so please pretend you didn’t read it.

That non-existent joke came to mind when I read at The College Fix that a black student at any Ivy League school is crying “Trauma!” It wasn’t a tank crash that prompted this reaction from University of Pennsylvania snowflake James Fisher. It was “because he had three white professors who refused to acknowledge their privilege.”

Trending: Fuel for Thought

Fisher claims in an op-ed in the school newspaper “The Daily Pennsylvanian” that he suffered a mental breakdown:

Last semester was honestly the worst semester I’ve had at Penn so far. And all because of one thing: the white professors I’ve had at Penn. It appears that the term ‘privilege’ does not apply to them. Nor do they care to learn what it is.

It was one teacher in particular, “a white man from the suburbs,” who really pushed Fisher’s buttons. The sophomore’s constant nagging fears of “the possibility of” “getting mad over something stupid that he was going to say” were realized:

There were countless times that his lack of acknowledgment of his privilege led to some of the trauma that I experienced in class. He would show images of slaves on plantations and even allow students to say ignorant comments in class.
