    Home Depot released a statement Wednesday addressing controversy about a hyper-progressive worksheet on "white privilege" and "racism" that recently went viral online.

    The company acknowledged that the worksheet is a "resource" in its Canadian division but noted that it's "not part of any required programming," nor was it "created or approved by our corporate diversity, equity and inclusion department."

    The literature defined "white privilege" as "[s]ocietal privileges that benefit white people beyond what is commonly experienced by people of colour under the same social, political and economic circumstances."

    "Social privilege" was defined as "[s]pecial, unearned advantage or entitlement, used to one's own benefit or to the detriment of others. These groups can be advantaged based on social class, age, disability, ethnic or racial category, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, and religion."

    The worksheet also has a "check your privilege" segment, where the following choices are available: "white," "male," "class," "christian," "cis-gender," "able-bodied," and "heterosexual."

    "Class" privilege, the worksheet said, should be ascribed to anyone who expected as a kid they would one day go to college. "If while growing up, college was an expectation of you, not a dream, you have class privilege," the worksheet said.

    The resource claimed "racism" is "racial prejudice + power," defining "racial prejudice" as a "set of discriminatory or derogatory attitudes based on assumptions coming from perceptions about race/skin colour."

    "Some of the portions of the worksheet appeared to be copied from a social media campaign against privilege in 2014 at the University of San Francisco," The Blaze noted.

    "While we fully support diversity across our company, this material was not created or approved by our corporate diversity, equity and inclusion department," Home Depot said in a statement. "This was a resource in our Canadian division and not part of any required programming."

    Back in 2019, billionaire Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus angered the Left when he said he'd be donating money to then-President Donald Trump's re-election campaign, triggering a #BoycottHomeDepot hashtag.

    "He's got a businessman's common sense approach to most things," Marcus said of Trump. "Now, do I agree with every move that he makes? No, I don't. But the truth is he has produced more than anybody else. He has. If we look at this country, I would say that we are better off today than we were eight years ago or six years ago."

    Marcus, who retired as chairman of Home Depot in 2002, said that after he dies he will give between 80-90% of his estimated $5.9 billion fortune to various charitable causes, The Daily Wire highlighted.
