      but these types of videos only creates more division because its wrong to assume that I -a white male, have some sort of "privilege", its bias liberal racist propaganda.
      Its more of a guilt trip on my family, im sorry that they were raised strict Catholics that in fear of the Lord, kept the family together... I hate being so serious lol.
      sorry if I offended anyone.

      DH, if some or all of the questions were changed--to reflect other equally valid considerations--the results would be quite different. IOW, the film looks convincing, but it is rigged. I say that because the point you made illustrates it.

      Those are definitely meant to put a person on a guilt trip!

      My husband was overlooked for a promotion BY THE GOVERNMENT because they needed to meet their black quota...so they promoted a black woman who didn't have the education my husband did. And she had to ask him all the time how to do her job.

      White privilege. Don't buy into it.

      Who said anything about white privilege?
      How should we respond to anyone whom God did not grant the same opportunities in life? Do we, as Christians, just tell them to suck it up and work harder as we walk into our nice hotel on the beach?
      How do the differences in privilege affect the way we see immigrants who stream into America? When we walk by a person who is beat down, do we pass by on the other side of the street because they are not like us? When we go to church are there certain people and families we lift up while others are looked down upon?
      How does the privilege we are born with change our perceptions? This video should cause us to be introspective rather than defensive.
      I grew up without much money, but even so, the indigenous people's at the nearby reservation were treated worse than me (even though some had more money) just because they were indigenous.
      How does privilege affect our evangelism and the way we treat others in the church?

      I grew up poor too.

      If you're bringing the immigration debate here well then you have to know that our government has it set up as a process that people should follow. The US doesn't ban immigrants. They want people to follow the legal process. Is that so wrong to expect someone to do the right thing if they want to live here?

      I'm not bringing the immigration debate here. I'm asking how we view immigrants who have come here and then struggle to get wealthy. I'm asking, how do we view and treat those who were not granted a privilege that others have in the church?
