The push for diversity is on around the globe today.
The concept of privilege dates back to when American sociologist and historian W. Du Bois published the essay The Souls of Black Folkin which he wrote that although African Americans were observant about white Americans and conscious of racial discriminationwhite Americans did not think much about African Americans, nor about the effects of racial discrimination.
McIntosh described white privilege as an "invisible package of unearned assets" which white people do not want to acknowledge, and which leads to them being confident, comfortable and oblivious about racial issues, while non-white people become unconfident, uncomfortable and alienated.
She argued that everybody has a combination of unearned advantage and unearned disadvantage, and should aim to try to see themselves in the context of societal patterns of discrimination and oppression.
If one were to assume that in a clustered space degradation of a race is compared to the enhancement of another via predisposed opportunity created by historical oppression or manifest destiny then an imbalance does exist, however; when the grouping is non intentional and formed from like individuals that have congregated out of social self acceptance then privilege is not acquired from race or social standing but naturally occurring and therefore not a reflection of privilege but instead a reflection of evolution.
An example might be that when you examine a region such as Oakland California, opportunities were not readily available across racial lines and therefore some races advanced over others giving them a sort of individual privilege whites while other races enjoy a community privilege blacks.
One might inspect Seattle WA and realize that white privilege and black privilege do not exist only Asian. In Seatac, WA where a large number of black individuals have migrated, white individuals may appear to have a privilege but in actuality are second to Asians of the region and were educated elsewhere, many from out of country communities that have no relationship to early American struggles or opportunities, meaning that it was not privilege but mental superiority that dictated state in society and the black social group "chose" to be in the situation of the area by migrating to it, still when you examine Washington DC, opportunities were equally provided and all races have advanced systematically showing that the smartest black communities in America can be found there in equal proportions to white or Asian yet all groups migrated intentionally to the society found there.
Finally when looking at cultures where large clumps of races had been broken down and disseminated over time, it was shown that all privilege based on race is dissolved and only education and effort provide advancement.
In all other areas of the US, privilege does not exist and only appears imbalanced by historical social collectivism, anyone arriving in such a region and claiming privilege of one class or race above another is an alien to the base culture of the area and therefore not representing privilege but demanding an unearned social right to share in the benefits of the established collective without actual ownership of establishment of culture or society.
In short a large group of people of one race cannot willingly arrive or stay once given the choice around one person of another race that is better off and claim privilege. Alternatively one person of one race can not force a large group of another race into a single area where they alone have opportunity and advance without claiming a privilege of dominance.
White privilege exists but not all white people have it, some have only shared social privilege with all other races and while black peoples do claim to be without privilege as opposed to white people, this can only be claimed of the white people who are relevant to the social group from which they are a part eight regions of the us only.
Alternatively there does exist black privilege where the opposite expectation can be found. Overview[ edit ] Historically, academic study of social inequality focused mainly on the ways in which minority groups were discriminated against, and ignored the privileges accorded to dominant social groups.
That changed in the late s, when researchers began studying the concept of privilege. Some such as social class are relatively stable and others, such as age, wealth, religion and attractiveness, will or may change over time.
In the context of the theory, privileged people are considered to be "the norm", and, as such, gain invisibility and ease in society, with others being cast as inferior variants.
They justify this by acknowledging the acts of individuals of unearned dominance, but deny that privilege is institutionalized as well as embedded throughout our society. She wrote that those who believe privilege is systemic may nonetheless deny having personally benefited from it, and may oppose efforts to dismantle it.
Instead it was partly due to a system that has developed to support them.
