How would you define privilege? Are you privileged? BuzzFeed recently released a video that will give you an eye-opening explanation.
The video shows a group of people going through an activity together that demonstrates the startling advantages that privileged people enjoy.
The group of people all start off in a line together holding hands. Everyone is asked a question and, if it applies to them, they are directed to either take a step forward or a step backward.
The video challenges not only those who participate, but every single person who watches it as well. It forces people to think twice about the true meaning of privilege, and maybe even recognize if you are privileged. It also asks people to examine the impact that privilege has on our everyday lives.
This simple video will make you think twice about everything in your life.
