Well, this is rich.

A black student privileged enough to attend the University of Pennsylvania is put off by the privilege of his white professors. You just can’t make this stuff up.

James Fisher wrote about his mental breakdown (no, really) in his op-ed for the Daily Pennsylvanian student newspaper:

“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…

“Understanding their privileges to them is very different. They think that by not saying racist comments in class, they are doing good. Not knowing that that half-hearted attempt further contributes to the oppression that I experience in my predominantly white classrooms.”

It’s a good time to remind you, dear reader, that no one forced Fisher to go to this school. You might say it’s a privilege to go to an Ivy League school, but the irony is lost on this social justice snowflake who wreaks of privilege.

In fact, Fisher wears his privilege on his sleeve because he admits he walked into his class taught by “a white man from the suburbs” expecting to get “mad over something stupid that he was going to say.”

“But I gave him a chance.” Oh, how thoughtful.

And wouldn’t you know it, Fisher’s suspicions were right on the money. (We knew they would be):

“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.”

Fisher has NEVER said anything ignorant. Ever:

“He then used the argument that, in order to make the class a ‘safe space,’ he had to protect the voices of all students in the class.

“This is where the problem arose for me. This is the same argument that #AllLivesMatter people use. They argue that everyone should be equal and that no life is more important than another.”

Okay, I take it back.

But wait, there’s more:

“So, because my professor wanted to protect the voices of the white students who benefit from black oppression, the oppression unfortunately continued. It even led to me mentally breaking down in the classroom.

“I stopped going to his class for a month. With different emotions going through my head from not only this class but from the Trump election, I did not want to step foot into another white space until I made sure that my mental health was restored.”

Stop right there. Just stop. If you are this unhinged mentally, perhaps it’s time to consider not being around people anymore. Give up your spot at the table and let someone else sit down who wants to be there. I know, I know — that’s my white privilege talking.

But in reality, if Fisher represents the mindset of the average college student today, and indeed he does, who would want to pay that much money to be around them?
