A Penn State professor used a white student’s skin as an object lesson to demonstrate the effects of systemic racism.  

Dr. Sam Richards, a sociology professor at Penn State University, singled out an “average white” male student in front of a 700-person lecture hall to explain the inequality that exists between white and black students, The Blaze reported.

“I just take the average white guy in class, whoever it is, it doesn’t really matter,” Richards says in the video.

“Dude, this guy here. Stand up, bro. What’s your name, bro?” the instructor says to a white male student named Russell.  

“Look at Russell, right here, it doesn’t matter what he does,” says Richards. “If I match him up with a black guy in class or a brown guy even… who’s just like him, has the same GPA, looks like him, walks like him, talks like him, acts in a similar way, has been involved in the same groups on campus, takes the same leadership positions, whatever it is… and we send them into the same jobs… Russell has a benefit of having white skin.” 

Another video shows the professor pulling another white student in front of the class to ask him how he felt about being born white.  

“Bro, how does it feel knowing that [when] push comes to shove your skin’s kind of nice?” Richardson asks.   

“I don’t know, it makes me feel sad,” replied the student.  

National radio host and best-selling author Todd Starnes slammed the professor for the racist lecture.

“These are bad people. They are indoctrinating your kids. And now they’re training up white people to apologize for being white,” the Todd Starnes Show host told listeners Tuesday. “What Critical Race theory is teaching is that God made a mistake when he made white people.”
