Tunnels of Oppression expose ‘privileged’ students to ‘dehumanization’



Several schools are hosting “Tunnels of Oppression,” where students experience simulated acts of racism, misogyny, and more so that they can “recognize their own privilege.”

Lee University’s Residential Life and Housing and Student Leadership Council will be hosting its fourth annual iteration of the event on Friday, during which participants will go on an interactive tour that exposes them to a different type of oppression in each room, including ”racial, sexual, mental, and societal oppression.”

Other schools host their own versions of the Tunnel, as well, though the exact nature of the exercise varies.

Below is a video from the 2010 Tunnel of Oppression at Southern Illinois University in which students are subjected to verbal abuse by university employees.

    How often have we read of high school graduates who could,’t even read their own diploma!
