Race/ethnicity Post

How would your life be different if you were living in that society, based on your race/ethnicity? Would you have more or less privilege? Would you have to change your behaviors? Would you face discrimination? My life would be diffrent if I lived in tibet because it is different from where I come from and the languaje will be different for me to learn. I would be less privilidged because I dont know the languaje or anything in general about Tibet. I sure would need to change my behaviors, people from Colombia are different than peopple from Tibet/China and I would need to react differntly, so I would need to change my behavior. I would be discriminated by where I come from, how i look, the way I speak and many other things that would make me different from them.

Articles

I chose the article "There are only three countries in the world were your boss is more likely to be a woman"
My life is different living in one of the three countries from if I lived in a country that woman were not that common to be bosses. I probably would be taught to work not that much to sustain a company, since it isint that common but more to work from directions. 
I wouldent have the priviledges I have since I wouldent have that much posibility to have a such important job, different from what I have now, a high possibility.
I would need to change my behavior since I would not be the one making the choises and giving the directions of the company, I would probably be the one following them.
My privilidges and rights would be limited if I lived in a place with a low number of Female bosses and I wouldent have the chance to ran a whole company.

Understanding Prejudice Quiz reflection.

I took the race test. My results were a preference for white people with a 48 percent. I think they may be true since I am surrounded with people from this race, but generally I dont think I have a preference for neither of them.
