What is privilege? Is there any way to describe it?

If you’re unclear, or maybe even upset, about the discussion around “privilege,” watch this really short film. It explains the issue quite simply. It also reinforces the idea that nobody is to blame for their privilege, just that it’s important to recognize it when you benefit from it and realize that not everyone does benefit.

The questions were based on an exercise created by social activists Margo Adair and Sharon Howell.
