Three white people in the United States talk about privilege.
The concept of privilege is something that sociologists have been studying for nearly as long as the discipline has been around, but the discussion has finally made its way into the popular discussion and it seems to have a lot of strong feelings on both sides. There are several questions we seek to answer in this episode. Does privilege exist? Assuming it does, what are the ways it manifests itself? And further assuming it does, should its existence be treated as a problem and if so, what methods if any should be used to fix it.
