What is privilege?

One of those words that seems to be thrown around left and right these days, privilege can mean different things for different people.

These days, the word privilege has become a trigger term that can easily make some angry while setting others on the defensive side. The very nature of these reactions go to show how tricky a subject this could be to handle.

Buzzfeed set up an activity a while back that helps both participants and onlookers visualize and understand just what privilege means in a physical and emotional manner, and it will have you examining your own life and circumstances afterwards. This is powerful stuff.
