Question Description

This past week we focused on race and racism. These are very touchy

subjects, and the topics of race and racism are complex and
multi-layered. Addressing race and racism in the context of a college
classroom presents us with a unique set of challenges. But it seems now,
more than ever, we need to engage in open, honest dialogue about these

advantage or disadvantage. What score did you receive on the quiz? Do

and/or disadvantage you experience in your daily life? Why or why not?

(just do the quiz for me, and use your score)

Racial Privilege Quiz

My racial privilege score after taking the quiz was ten which categorizes me in the 24-24 bracket of the "a little privileged and a little disadvantaged group." I feel that this
