A photo has drawn attention to a University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill presentation last week about the “privilege” of being right-handed.
The image of a left-wing activist delivering the mandatory “right-handed privilege” lecture to representatives of the university’s Greek system on Oct. 18 has been widely circulated and mocked since it was posted to social media.

According to a pictured slide from the lecture, the unfair advantages of right-handedness include “to fit in,” “more opportunity” and “more advantage.”
- Another slide referred to “right-handed privilege” as “the system,” Newsweek reported Thursday.
“Our recent meeting focused on intellectual wellness, and guest speaker Christina Parle presented on the topic of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion,” Cassie Hughes Thomas, the assistant director of Fraternity and Sorority Life at the University of North Carolina, told Newsweek.
- Parle, who works for “equity and inclusion” consultancy Social Responsibility Speaks, has yet to respond to a request for comment.
Christopher Rufo, a leading opponent of “critical race theory,” shared the viral photo to Twitter along with screenshots of related headlines, quipping, “They’re really trying to make Critical Hand Theory happen.”
It’s ok to be right handed. https://t.co/a8WCgYeqd1
