Ohio State University Health Course Requires Students To Address Their White, Heterosexual Privileges

via The Ohio State University on Youtube

The Ohio State University’s health sciences program requires students to engage in discussions and assignments about gender and race, including addressing privileges related to being White, heterosexual, or able-bodied.

The course, funded by the Affordable Learning Exchange grant, includes activities such as “Unpack the Invisible Knapsack” based on Peggy McIntosh’s essay on White privilege.

Students are also asked to watch a documentary on “White People” and discuss their thoughts about whiteness. (Trending: Elon Musk Condemns Arrest Of Jan 6 Protester)

“Whiteness protected me from many kinds of hostility, distress, and violence, which I was being subtly trained to visit, in turn, upon people of color,” one course document read.

Students were pressed to “consider how this differs or does not differ from how you’ve framed your relative privilege before, what you can do with the amount of privilege you DO have, how things would be different if you had more privilege, etc.”

“The curriculum within Ohio State University’s Health Sciences Program highlights a broader trend found in many universities nationwide – the adoption of divisive and political ideologies aimed at indoctrinating students,” said Do No Harm chairman Dr. Stanley Goldfarb.

“They theorize that interactions between groups must be viewed through the lens of critical race theory and the oppressor/oppressed dyad.”

“This is pure identity politics and can only lead to divisiveness and intergroup hostility.”

“Rather than veering into polarizing debates that deviate from health care’s core values, universities should prioritize equipping future health care providers with the crucial skills, knowledge and empathetic understanding essential to deliver the best care possible,” Goldfarb added.

“Ohio State believes in academic freedom and freedom of expression, including the free exchange of ideas by students and instructors. The university seeks to foster and maintain a campus environment where all viewpoints are welcome and respected,” university spokesperson Ben Johnson stated.

Critics argue that the course promotes divisive and political ideologies, while the university emphasizes academic freedom and the free exchange of ideas.
