Privilege check, one two, one too…

From Mixed in Canada:

MIC is taking on “Mixed Privilege” in an effort to decolonize & deconstruct the various social privileges that some of us may benefit from. Recognizing our privilege is arguably one of the most important steps in anti-oppression work, as it allows us to connect in a more honest way with our Indigenous & PoC communities, as well as to address the ways in which we may benefit from the greater social system (white ableist hetero-patriarchic supremacy). Privilege is defined as a right, immunity, or benefit enjoyed only by a few beyond the advantages of most (see more important terms here).

Note: This is not to say that we as mixed Indigenous &/or PoC do not experience racism and other forms of oppression (because we most definitely do). Also, the various privileges we might benefit from may range widely from person to person, so it is possible that none of these necessarily are true for you.
