Transcript of The Oppression Equation

The Oppression Equation
Power is the ability to define reality and to have other people respond to your definition as if it were their own. - Dr Wade Noble.

the set of unearned advantages a person gets (you get) for some perceived trait a person possesses (you possess).
the set of unwarranted disadvantages you don't suffer under, but other people suffer.
it is privilege that creates its corresponding oppression, and then there is a feedback loop.
having privilege is rarely an intentional or conscious act
Prejudice has to do with the inflexible and irrational attitudes and opinions held by members of one group about another, while discrimination refers to behaviors directed against another group.
Being prejudiced usually means having preconceived beliefs about groups of people or cultural practices.
Those who practice discrimination do so to protect opportunities for themselves by denying access to those whom they believe do not deserve the same treatment as everyone else.
Can you name and diagram another?
Oppression is the experience of repeated, widespread, systemic injustice.
Civilized oppression "is embedded in unquestioned norms, habits, and symbols, in the assumptions underlying institutions and rules, and the collective consequences of following those rules. It refers to the vast and deep injustices some groups suffer as a consequence of often unconscious assumptions and reactions of well-meaning people in ordinary interactions which are supported by the media and cultural stereotypes as well as by the structural features of bureaucratic hierarchies and market mechanisms."
