Video: Eighth-grader apologizes for ‘white boy privilege’ in poem, wins school competition

Eighth-grade student apologizes for white privilege in profanity-laced poem.This video tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the state of modern “education.”  On Tuesday, EAG News reported that Royce Mann, a 14-year-old eighth-grader, won a school competition at The Paideia School in Georgia with a “slam poem” about white privilege.  In the profanity-laced poem, Mann apologizes to “everyone who isn’t a middle or upper class white boy.”

Worse yet, EAG added, “he was inspired by his school lessons.”

What lessons might these be?  He explained:  “I wrote it because I became aware of white privilege this year. We have a class called Race, Class and Gender that everyone has to take, and I got really passionate about how unfair it is.”

Wait, what?  He had to take a class on race, class and gender?  What about reading, writing, math skills and critical thinking?

EAG added:

“I have started life on the top of the ladder while you were born on the first rung,” Mann said. “I say now that I would change places with you in an instant, but if given the opportunity, would I?

“Probably not,” he said.

Mann then went into how great it is to be white.

“I’m just saying that I’m f**kin’ privileged and I’m not willing to give that away. I love it because I can say ‘f**kin’ and not one of you is attributing that to the fact that everyone with my skin color has a dirty mouth,” he said.

“I love it because I don’t have to spend an hour every morning putting on make-up to meet other people’s standards.

“I love it because I can worry about what kind of food is on my plate instead of whether or not there is food on my plate.

“I love it because when I see a police officer I see someone who is on my side.

There’s more, but you get the drift.

Here’s video of the “poem.” (Strong language warning)

Fusion reported:

His school originally posted the video on Facebook in May, where it gained tens of thousands of views, he said, but they took it down because officials were unable to monitor the comments. About two weeks ago, he rereleased the video onto YouTube, where it has been growing, especially over the last few days.

There has been both positive and negative feedback to the poem. Friends and family have called and messaged him, congratulations for the hit.

“Most of the negative comments aren’t content-based, which frustrates me,” he confided. “Like, if they’re just going to start calling me names, then I don’t respect their viewpoint. But when people say they disagree with me about something content-based, then we can have a discussion.”

The video, which has been viewed over 266,000 times, illustrates what happens when left-wing ideologues are allowed to stay in control of our schools.  It’s quite clear they are deliberately turning our children into brainwashed skulls full of mush.

Parents should take note…  This is what is being done to your children.  What’s sad is that one day soon, these children will be in charge of the country.  And God help us when that happens.
