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.
This video is a visual representation about privilege.
