I would appreciate your cooperation and honesty in the following survey. Many of the questions gathered here are from a larger survey from BuzzFeed.com asking people to "check" their privilege.

How do you feel after taking this survey?
Privilege of Various Sorts..
Each of the statements above are various privileges many Americans have that others do not have. I ask that you please take your score (one point for each check) and think of others you know who would not have scored as high as you or maybe even others who may have scored higher than you and have a genuine discussion about the privilege or non-privilege you face daily and come up with ways to address it. The highest possible score is a 42.
