Accusations of "privilege" are used to shut up white students
Comments below from a student at Southern Illinois University
Progressives preach for equality and diversity, but do not tolerate diversity of thought. Many students on college campuses are not able to voice their opinions out of the fear of being racist, homophobic, or xenophobic. This intolerance has gotten so out of hand that people no longer ask questions and just assume the worst. Because if you come from a position of “privilege”, you have no life struggles. These elections are the perfect example of this.
A number of individuals are so dumbfounded by Trump’s victory, but they should not. These are the consequences of silencing individuals and not allowing them to speak their minds. They spoke with their votes. The left has created a hostile environment for debate and different opinions, it is hard to convince people to agree with you when you silence them because of their “privilege”.
