    A bulletin board prominently displayed in Appalachian State University denounces white, male, Christian ‘privilege’.

    Students enrolled at Appalachian State University must walk past a ‘privilege board’ denouncing their white, male, able-bodied, Christian, or cisgender privilege any time the wish to enter the Student Union.

    There was also a nearly identical board that was spotted located and prominently displayed within a residence hall at Appalachian State University last year, however, the controversy that the bulletin board attracted was apparently not sufficient to prevent it from reappearing in an ever more prominent location within the University, as reported by Campus Reform.

    The bulletin board is located in the Plemmons Student Union, which the University regards as “the centerpiece of the Appalachian campus,” and was apparently put up by a student group last school semester, but has been allowed to remain in place.

    Campus Reform notes the bulletin board features fliers from the “Check Your Privilege” campaign, which was started by professors at the University of San Francisco, and features memes with phrases that read, “Look at all the privileges I haven’t checked.”
