'Left behind' from Apocalypse: Choose 8 'most deserving' to save - WND

5-6 minutes

Now even the so-called “end of the world” is being dragged into America’s diversity wars, as a major university is providing both students and faculty an odd exercise.

The support@uh.edu" style="color: rgb(0, 149, 221); text-decoration-line: none;">University of Houston is recommending everyone to take part in an activity called “Whom to Leave Behind” in the impending Apocalypse.

In the exercise, a dozen people of varied races, sex and other biographical information are listed, but only the eight “most deserving” are to be selected as worthy to be saved from the cataclysm spoken of in the Bible’s Book of Revelation.

The instructions state:

“The twelve persons listed below have been selected as passengers on a space ship for a flight to another planet because tomorrow the planet Earth is doomed for destruction. Due to changes in space limitations, it has now been determined that only eight persons may go. Any eight qualify. Your task is to select the Eight (8) passengers who will make the trip.

“On your own, take approximately 5 minutes and rank order of the passengers from one to twelve based on those who you feel are most deserving to make the trip with one being most deserving and twelve being least deserving. Next, the entire group will come together and decides as a group the eight (8) passengers who will make the trip.”

The dozen on the original passenger list include:

  • an accountant with a substance abuse problem
  • a militant African-American medical student
  • a 33-year-old female Native American manager who does not speak English
  • the accountant’s pregnant wife
  • a famous novelist with a physical disability
  • a 21-year old, female, Muslim international student
  • a Hispanic clergyman who is against homosexuality
  • a female movie star who was recently the victim of a sexual assault
  • a racist armed police officer who has been accused of using excessive force
  • a homosexual male, professional athlete
  • an Asian, orphaned 12-year old boy
  • 60-year old Jewish university administrator

The exercise is just one of many the university is offering.

Another “icebreaker,” as the school calls it, is the “Privilege Walk,” where students and faculty stand in a straight line, and then take a single step forward or backward upon hearing a statement to determine if a person is privileged or disadvantaged.

Some of the statements include:

  • If you are a citizen of the United States, take one step forward.
  • If you grew up in an urban setting, take one step backward.
  • If your family had health insurance, take one step forward.
  • If you were ever stopped or questioned by the police because they felt you were suspicious, take one step backward.
  • If your work and school holidays coincide with religious holidays that you celebrate, take one step forward.
  • If you have been bullied or made fun of based on something you cannot change (i.e. your gender, ethnicity, age or sexual orientation) take one step backward.

Some examples from the University of Houston’s “Privilege Walk” game

The University of Houston features another exercise titled “The Person I Least Want to Be,” where students are asked to select the person they would least wish to be from a list of imaginary profiles. Some of the choices are:

  • Single Mom In Mid 30’s (w/2 small children and a full scholarship)
  • Gay Student w/a good Support System on Campus
  • African-American Student (who went to a predominantly black high school)
  • Wheelchair Bound Student (senior, Computer Science Major who already has a great job)

The game is designed “to stimulate small and large group discussion about what it means to be in a minority group” as well as “build empathy for students who may be seen as at a disadvantage academically, socially or otherwise.”

Other games recommended by the university include “Speed Hating: A Date with Discrimination” and “Cultural Bingo,” where people are asked questions such as:

  • “Who knows which tribal government the US Constitution was modeled after?”
  • “Who knows what a Jeri Curl is?”
  • “Who knows what concert ‘We Are the World’ was first sung at?”
  • and “Who can recite the books of the Old or New Testament?”
