Checking off your privilege

In the circles I travel, we talk a lot about privilege. It is easy to think but I grew up poor and think that means I don’t have privilege, but I do. By an accident of birth I am white and cis (and female), so a lot of things are easier. I like this video because it starts the conversation about privilege without alienating people initially by tying it into race, sexual orientation, or gender expression – all areas where people are most likely to be blind to their own privilege.

Happy viewing!
