There are many different types of privilege. Most people have at least one kind of privilege. In our society, some forms of privilege matter more than others. Which privileges do you think society values? Is this fair? Do you recognize any of your own privileges on the list?
Having privilege is not necessarily a bad thing (Remember talking about how almost all of the bad guys of the civil rights movement were white, but being white does not necessarily make you a bad guy). However, a lot of times privilege allows people ignore the struggles of others.
It is important to recognize the privilege that we do have, and be aware that not everyone we meet has the same types or amounts of privilege.
