http://www.theguardian.com/society/quiz/2013/jun/05/check-your-privilege-quiz I scored 100, and it was suggested I pay someone to check my privilege for me. Background: A conservative student, who was Jewish, was debating about welfare benefits, during a class at Princeton University. His opponent told him to check his privilege. He responded in an editorial that he was tired of having presidential drones targeting him because he was a white male. Just what privilege was he to apologize for? Was it the handful of kin who were killed during the Holocuast? Was it his grandparents who arrived in this land as penniless immigrants? . . . http://sfcmac.wordpress.com/2014/05/03/princeton-student-responds-to-check-your-privilege/ He stirred quite a debate. Of course, non-Princetonians found it amusing that Ivy Leaguers were debating who was and was not privileged. :-) Anyway...let us know how privileged you turned out to be.
