Oppressions or Privilege Points?

The exercise we did in class last Thursday where we listed our privileges and oppressions reminded me of this video entitled “Modern Educayshun” written by Neel Kolhatkar, an Australian entertainer. It explores (to a dystopian extreme) the detriments of today’s political correctness and the phenomenon the “oppression Olympics.” Although the point of our exercise in class was far removed from the Privilege Point system seen in this video, many of my personal oppressions (and those of the people with whom I was discussing) voiced in class correspond/reappear as “Privilege Points” in the video, something I think is very interesting.
