Walk the Line




Reposting from Huffington Post

What is privilege? Is there any way to describe it?
In a recent video posted by Buzzfeed, several people are asked a series of questions and then told to either step forward or backward if the question applies to them. The questions were based on an exercise created by social activists Margo Adair and Sharon Howell.
Each question asks the participants whether or not they enjoy certain privileges or endure different disadvantages.
“I think when you can represent it visually like this and so immediately, it definitely takes a new form,“ said one of the participants.
Watch this video just to see where everyone ends up. It opens your eyes to a whole new perspective on social divisions.
