          Deconstructing Privilege

          October 18, 2018

          PLAYING Deconstructing Privilege
          Dr. Phil tackles a tough and highly-debated topic that needs to be discussed but no one wants to talk about it. The term “white privilege” is all over the news almost daily.

          So what does “white privilege” really mean? There seems to be a huge misconception that the term means all Caucasians are racist, which is not the case. No one questions whether it exists. But what are we supposed to do about it? Dr. Phil speaks with some of the foremost experts on this topic to discuss how we can be more socially proactive and what people on both sides of privilege can do to alleviate the problem. Plus, meet Rene, who claims she was wrongly accused of using her “white privilege” to harass a street vender. Find out what Rene says really happened, and how she claims the accusations have ruined her life. And meet Quevaughn, a 23-year-old legal assistant, who made headlines after he claims he was singled out and viciously attacked at a pizzeria.
