Lise Vincent 5/30/2008 Learning activity: Examining Privilege Following the example by Peggy McIntosh in her article, "White Privilege and Male Privilege," identify TWO areas in which you experience privilege (e.g., White, middle or upper class, male, young, heterosexual, able-bodied, Christian) in our community. Construct two separate lists (include 10-20 items per list) of specific circumstances and conditions in which you have experienced unearned privilege based solely on your group membership. Following your lists, include a typed (2-4 pg) critical reflection of your personal experience of power, privilege, and oppression. Be sure to include references. Upper class: They can go to places to escape. For example in the south France the beaches are packed of people. There is no space between the beach towels! Most of the time it is middle to lower class people that go there because they can just drive there. That also makes packed roads during the summer, sometimes there is up to 100km of traffic jams. When you have money you can take the plane and go to places where less people are.

White: In France the resume in the beginning had pictures. Because they saw that this made privilege for the white people it was changed, now most of the time the picture is not required on the resume. Also there are problems with the names. There is a big population of Arabs in France and when you have a name like Abd Al-Hamid people will know right away that this person is Arabic. Because of that they will probably have a lesser chance of having the job… On the phone it is the same. Some Arabic or Black people have names that sound white but their voice on the phone will disadvantage them. Interesting. So people can sound their race? How so? White Heterosexual 1. I will not be discriminated for a job because of the color of my skin. 2.
