A Raleigh, North Carolina mother is furious at her son’s elementary school for passing out a “white privilege” pamphlet to second-grade students.

Amber Pabon said her 8-year-old came home from school asking if “white people are better” than him after being given a paper explaining “white privilege.”

“He’s 8 years old. What does he need to know about racism or white privilege?” Pabon asked WTVD.

‘I think the message itself is inappropriate because yes there is racism out here, and they need to learn about it, but let the parents do that,’ Pabon continued.

Statistics shown in the handout seem to have been copied straight from a YES! Magazine article from 2017.
