Have you ever tried to explain things like white privilege or male privilege to someone who just doesn’t get it? Well, this video from the ACLU’s Women’s Rights Project might just help.
Starring of Saturday Night Live, the video follows Zamata and her clueless white male friend as they discuss equality in America.
While her friend, Sean, thinks our country has made great strides and is pretty equal, Zamata finds herself getting harassed by everyone from cat-callers to the police, and encountering billboards and magazines that reenforce notions of white male privilege.
In the end, Sean comes to realize that women and people of color have it a lot harder, but not before he starts to recognize his own privilege.
Now, if only real life convos could be this easy…
Take a look.
