A learning group presentation that stood out to me was the privilege presentation. When I first talked about privilege with a group of students my age, I was at my old community college. In this sociology class, I was one of three black people. My professor had everyone in the class take a survey to determine their privilege. When we were asked to discuss what we noticed, many white students in the class voiced their concerns about the idea of them having privilege. I found myself defending the black perspective and experience in America. This was difficult being one person. The discussion we had about privilege in DCERP was meant to inform and educate. That is what I loved the most. There has been a national pull against teaching critical race theory in schools. For me, being in my old community college class filled with students who didn’t understand their place in society at the age of 19, showed why it’s important to teach about CRT. A common argument is that it teaches students to feel bad about themselves. Yet, if students don’t receive the proper understanding of these social concepts they will form their own opinions from societal cues. This will continue to support injustice, oppression, discrimination, and closed-mindedness. Having conversations like the learning group did about privilege is exactly what we need in all classrooms.
