I recently had an interesting discussion with someone on their lack of belief in white privilege. It resulted in my leaving quite frustrated. I also tried to speak to my husband about it, but I end up so ver klempft that I can’t even banter appropriately or effectively. I have been trying to figure out a better and more clear way to explain it. The girl in the video explains it as immunity….rather than privilege…Maybe that makes it more palatable. I also have read an article that makes it understandable for the video generation….Click here.
One good thought I have had is: *if your perceived oppressive experience ends when you change environments, there wasn’t an *ism.*
You can be uncomfortable and a situational minority without being oppressed.
Google “Galtung conflict triangle” interesting stuff. 2/3 isn’t an ism. You gots to have all 3.
