When reading about white and male privilege it reminded me a lot about positionality. If we better understand our background and who we are especially in the context of where we live I think we'll better understand our advantages and/or disadvantages. One thing I'm curious about is that it seems like minority groups are the ones being disadvantaged. Do you think if these minority groups were the majority would we see different privileged groups? Or do you think that white and male privilege is rooted so deep in the U.S. that it wouldn't make much of a difference?
