“White Boy Privilege” Speech Wins School Contest

Royce Mann

A 14-year-old Atlanta 8th grader won first place in a slam poem competition at his school’s year-end event.

His winning speech is a racist, profanity-laced rant on the injustices of his “white privilege” that is supposed to make anyone ashamed if they’re white.  He apologizes to all the people of color, native Americans, immigrants, and anyone else who isn’t a “middle or upper class white boy.”

The student, Royce Mann, said he was “inspired” by a class he took at school.  “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.”

The class accomplished its goal.
