The study found that using the term “white privilege” deters people from campaigning for social justice.

The phrase made discussions “less constructive, more polarized and less supportive of racially progressive policies,” the researchers said.

Nearly 1,000 people spoke at the University of Michigan, 82 percent of whom were white.

They were asked, “Should colleges rename buildings named after people who actively supported X?”

Last year, Education Minister Nadhim Zahavi said schools should not teach children about “white privileges” as if it were a fact.

He warned that this was a “contradictory opinion” and that teachers who promoted it risked imposing “guerrilla” policies on students.

The minister spoke after a report by the Commons Education Committee suggested that teaching white privileges could be against the equality law.

She stressed how working-class white students have been ignored in the education system for “decades”
