If some of you recall, I spent about a solid week discussing privilege here on my blog and vlog.
This is the best comprehensive reference I’ve found thus far.
Action steps to checking privilege
1) Acknowledge that the privilege exists
2) Move away from immobilizing guilt
3) Understand that your privilege will not go away until the root systems that give you privilege are abolished
4) Be an ally to communities you are not a part of
5) Recognize how and why your privilege can destruct community empowerment
6) Use your privilege to benefit groups you are not a part of
7) Educate others with your privilege to check themselves
8) Call people out and embrace being called out about privilege
And don’t pretend that you’re oppressed because you’re the one with the privilege.
