...Privilege Privilege demonstrates failing and reluctance to recognize the advantages that a person has received from thesociety (Chen and Omatsu 247). Some inequalities created by privilege are too big to be defended by rationally and in most cases, the privileged members of society focus on maintaining their privilege at the expense of other members of the society (Niebuhr 117). Growing up, there are some activities I considered normal as my family and I participated in them without a lot of effort. As a grown up, I have discovered that some of the activities I did not pay a lot of attention to while growing up since, were not readily accessible to every other person as they grew... up. For...

In many cases, people consider privilege to occur to wealthy people and also powerful people. Considering the understanding of the term privilege, the privileges experienced include the privilege of a good health. Though good health is seen as a right, it is a privilege since one has the advantage of been healthy unlike other people who are not healthy. It is a...

...privilege More often than not people have felt inferior to others under some circumstances even though they are right; feeling they have been denied social participation and therefore they cannot exercise their rights. As a result they have felt discriminated by such people. In the human society, some people benefit from unearned advantages which are equally unacknowledged which amounts to them feeling they are superior to others. In simple terms, the idea of such people feeling they have such advantages over others is what constitutes privilege. According to Johnson (2001), privilege generally allows people to assume a certain level acceptance, inclusion, and respect in the world thus... White...

Women as “property” of their husbands was a function of the law until well into the 20th century. Perhap...

Education is an inherent right of humans; the ability to learn is something we all have. The difference is how we each intend to use that ability. Education as a mandate is a privilege by default, once something is mandated or “enforced” then it is defined purely by the rules of the agency or government mandating it. As a result in this context regarding state funded and monitored educational institutions (public schools, universities etc.) education becomes a privilege. Because many governments claim... .
