As I was reflecting on the subject of privilege, I read White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Backpack by Peggy McIntosh. She starts her piece with a similar bitter taste I have. “Through the work to bring materials from Women’s Studies into the rest of the curriculum, I have often noticed men’s unwillingness to grant that they are overprivileged, even though they may grant that women are disadvantaged. They may say they will work to improve women’s status, in the society, the university, or the curriculum, but they can’t or won’t support the idea of lessening men’s. Denials which amount to taboos surround the subject of advantages which men gain from women’s disadvantages.These denials protect male privilege from being fully acknowledged, lessened or ended.Thinking through unacknowledged male privilege as a phenomenon, I realized that since hierarchies in our society are interlocking, there was most likely a phenomenon of white privilege which was similarly denied and protected.” Her words made made me unpack my own privilege in the context of a Moroccan and Arab woman living in the United States. Like McIntosh, I realized that meritocracy was an utopia. I took a workshop with Aram Han Sifuentes where we learned to make banners. I wanted to invite all to reflect on what privilege meant to them. This piece was exhibited in the 2019 Miami Art Basel.
