Overcoming Privilege



White privilege is perhaps one of the most well known and displayed forms of privilege, while there are other forms present (i.e., sex, religion, language, etc.). This discussion will identify the many types of privileges displayed in American society and possible ramifications for those who do not identify with the norm. Discussion will include how some groups may be directly or indirectly oppressed by those who are in the majority and will focus on overcoming forms of privilege in our society.
