Turning Point USA reporter Savannah Hernandez is seen “deprogramming” a college student on the subject of so-called “white privilege” in a viral video in which the student couldn’t explain how he had the privilege of being a white man the way Hernandez, a Hispanic woman, was not. she has.
“I was raised a white man, and yet you’re the complete opposite, you know? And so, my experience is going to be different than yours,” the University of Texas at Austin student told Hernandez.
A college student started explaining his “white privilege” to me, so I decided to take the opportunity to deprogram him in live time: pic.twitter.com/CZGHtZancj

After Hernandez asked “How does that happen?” The student replied, “I think, you know, there is such a thing as white privilege.”
Then Hernandez asked what privileges he didn’t have, and the student replied, “Oh, look, that’s a question I keep asking myself, because, in this day and age, all the laws — I say all the laws — you know, it’s hard to talk about something I’m not fully aware of it.”
The seemingly puzzled student, who was then asked by Hernandez, added, “Don’t you think it’s a problem in society when white people think they have more privilege than black or brown people?”
“Yeah, and I think that’s kind of an agenda that got pushed back because, in part, like, I don’t think I’m any more privileged than anyone else because I had to work to get to where I was,” the student admitted.
Hernandez followed that up with another question, asking the student why he felt the need to apologize to her for his alleged white privilege, and why he felt the need to speak of him as “a white man in America.”
“God, you’ve made me so good,” the student confessed. “Look, these are the kind of conversations I like to have.”
“I think it comes from a place of, like, I wouldn’t say careful, but, in this day and age, people are very quick to judge and react and cancel, and so I think it’s on that alert to go on an interview like this,” the student said.
