Response to How Privileged Are You?:
53 out of 100. This leads to a negative definition of the word “privileged” and is a very relative test. It does not work as well in the UK as it would in the USA… and would work less well in Greece or Nigeria etc.
It is better to say: You should treat everyone the same… Rather then being told you might be a jerk for being born into your country’s average census results.
I get the point it’s trying to make but think the author’s personal view makes it a not very fair test.
I’ve ever met who would be stupid enough to ask these. I think you would have to be deliberately racist (or a character in a crap comedy movie).
Also, Belarus is the country which separates Poland/Russia and it isn’t over 3000 miles long!
