WHAT IS IT?:
It is a collection of very simple yes or no questions to reflect on to help you see your privilege.
Privilege itself is not an inherently bad thing, however a system that creates prvilege for one person is also a system that opresses another. It is important to be aware of these factors that you can be a better ally to people that fall in all minorty categories. In this instance specifically, POC (people of color).
