"Protestant Family Ethic" = white privilege

Seems that every success of a white person is "white privilege".

It's just envy and envy is sin - Romans 1:29

I imagine if you polled the families that are able to afford protestant Christian schools, you'd find most were white, more affluent families. For example, the good protestant Christian schools in my area run $7K - $10K /  year / pupil. This precludes many Christian families from sending their children to these schools.

Further, I'd suggest that this is an example of correlation doesn't mean causation. Many of these students probably come from homes where the "protestant family ethic" is already modeled.

In an era of declining enrollment due to costs and other factors, this is good news for these schools.  There is something good going on.

 

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
