The authors so far this term have presented a variety of characters (or points of view) who have some kind of privileged status or who lack privileged status. Essentially, privilege is a superior set of rights or status as compared to other individuals. Privilege can involve race, social class, gender, or any number of other categories and mainly concerns one group of people who has a higher status or more access to rights and opportunities than others.
Referring to at least three examples from three different authors so far this term, where do we see either examples of privilege or a lack of privilege in the readings so far this term? (Make sure you’re focusing on a particular example of privilege and not just summarizing an entire text.) What is the privilege that the character or author has or that the character or author lacks? How does that possession of privilege or lack of privilege affect their life or their opportunities? What can their experience perhaps tell us about how privilege or the lack of privilege affects individuals today?
