The way the content is organized and presented is seamlessly smooth, innovative, and comprehensive. LitCharts assigns a color and icon to each theme in So You Want to Talk About Race , which you can use to track the themes throughout the work. One day, at a group picnic, she feels awkward when a few black men playing basketball nearby ask to join them. Oluo shifts track to discuss the topic of privilege. Her anecdote here shows that privilege and oppression come up in complex, multilayered, constantly shifting ways.

Active Themes. Intersectionality, Oppression, and Social Justice. They include privileges based on race, physical ability, gender, and class but can also include less obvious privileges like sexual orientation, physical appearance or body type and neurological differences.

Oluo argues that addressing systemic oppression requires us to understand the full impact of the advantages our privileges give us.

Oluo wants to unpack the concept of privilege a bit further. She stresses that privilege and oppression are two sides of the same coin: a person with privilege is advantaged because the system gives them that privilege by taking opportunity away from somebody else.

Privilege is thus inherently unjust. Racism, Privilege, and White Supremacy. For example, Oluo has a college degree that she worked hard for while raising a child.

She grew up in a household with a mother who taught her to value education. She grew up as a nondisabled child with access to a school designed to serve her needs. Her grade school education was free. Oluo uses her own situation to show how privilege and systemic oppression are related. Oluo has these privileges because society gives her more opportunity by taking opportunities away from disabled, uneducated, undocumented, and poor people.

Her list also subtly emphasizes that oppression is intersectional it affects different people for different reasons in many overlapping ways. As a light-skinned black woman, Oluo is perceived as more intelligent than dark-skinned black women. As before, however, Oluo argues that being complacent about privilege is the same thing as being actively prejudiced: it allows the inequality to continue, and it allows a person to attain success because others are held back through discriminatory attitudes and practices.

She thinks we should check our privilege, because doing so helps us identify areas where we have more power to change the system.

She recommends making a list of all the advantages you had growing up—including things like growing up middle-class, being cisgender, being documented, being neurotypical, and so on. She suggests resisting the urge to think about all your disadvantages at this stage. The most ethical thing that a person can do with that power is to use it to seek change—they can call out problems and try to change the system so that power is more equally distributed in the future.

Oluo suggests studying your list and thinking about how your advantages in life shape your views on racism, education, and wider social issues. But learning about your privilege will help you stop being defensive and become more empathetic and generous during arguments. Once again, she advises the reader to embrace their discomfort rather than avoiding it. Oluo also implies that the fear of feeling uncomfortable is one of the biggest barriers to productive activism.

For example, if you had a private education, use your financial security to support efforts for improving public schools. If you have a flexible schedule and can make a daytime parent-teacher meeting, ask the school if they can move the next meeting to times that accommodate working parents. To Oluo, there are endless possibilities for leveraging your privilege to make ca change, so she urges everyone to regularly check their privilege.

Oluo illustrates several ways in which a person can flex their power to make a positive social change. Related Quotes with Explanations. Cite This Page. Home About Story Contact Help. Previous Chapter 3. Next Chapter 5.

A "black woman" in Africa, therefore, who has not experienced white racism, does not think of herself as black or experience herself. Page 4. Chapter 2.


Privilege, Power, and Difference

Avoidance, Exclusion, Rejection, and Worse o One of the most powerful human needs is the feeling of acceptance, which is a key act of privilege. Neglect in moments of crisis, having your car searched for a DWB driving while black violation. It appears through our incomes and how the people with wealth just get wealthier. It shows up in unequal treatment, opportunities in education, work, health care, and in the courts o Jobs are so segregated as well. A Problem for Whom?

Because the purpose of education is to provide children with the knowledge and skills—in other words, the power—to live healthy, successful lives, power should be the need that schools most effectively address. Ironically, power is the need that many students find most difficult to meet in school. In The Quality School , Glasser relates what he has discovered from interviewing students throughout the United States about their school experience: When I present my ideas to teachers and administrators, I usually interview six junior or senior high school students in front of a large audience. However, if I persist, most students tell me that they feel important in their extracurricular activities: Sports, music, and drama are frequently mentioned.
