College Students Wear White Puzzle Pieces to Raise Awareness of White Privilege

If you bump into a millennial snowflake with a white puzzle piece pinned to his or her shirt, be wary, for said individual is quite likely a complete buffoon.

As part of a discussion on race, some students at Elizabethtown College in Pennsylvania have chosen to adorn their shirts with these silly puzzle pieces this month to remind themselves of white privilege, according to The College Fix.

“Discussions about race are often perceived as being only open to people of color, but I think it is just as important for white people to partake in conversations about race,” explained the idea’s originator, College Democrats president Aileen Ida, via email.

She added that students of all races were welcome to don the pieces — presumably to remind their white peers that they are guiltier than sin of being in possession of this mythical “privilege.”

“No matter how accepting someone is, that doesn’t stop them from being part of a system based on centuries of inequality,” she continued.

According to The College Fix, Ida declined to cite any specific examples of white privilege, of course.

To hear more of her inane musings, watch the interview below from local news station WHP:

The idea was reportedly inspired by a similar project started by a Lutheran pastor who made a commitment to “wear a white puzzle piece pin every day for a year to force herself to think about her white privilege and the impact white privilege has on people of color.”

According to the College Democrats’ official Facebook page, by Tuesday “over 50 students, alumni, and community members” of presumably questionable intelligence had already agreed to wear these puzzle pieces.

Below are some of the worksheets being distributed in association with this campaign:

The saddest part of this story is that Ida has, apparently unwittingly, co-opted a symbol meant to promote autism awareness. Apparently, she was too busy obsessing over her non-existent privilege to notice.
