As a professor of mixed race (English, Scottish, African-American, German) who began life in poverty and then created success in many areas, I offer my perspective on “Privilege.” I look “white” and a percentage of my DNA is indeed English, German and Scottish. A percentage is also “black.” I have Jewish ancestors, and also Mormon. I created this video to show a sustainable way that all people can help re-imagine their own unique privilege to better “work” for their lives.
Born into poverty in a single-parent home, being an outcast in our community and later in life learning of my African American, Jewish and Mormon heritage, has provided me with a unique perspective. I view this worldview through the light of the voluntaryist creed.
I hope that my views in this video titled: “African American Jewish Mormon on “Privilege” ” are helpful to you!
