White Privilege Quiz

Welcome to this quiz. The quiz is about how white privileged you are. Answer the questions truthfully and you'll see your results at the end of the quiz.

This quiz was made at MG, so it's not a professional quiz, so don't take the results to heart. This is just to give you an idea on how you perceive yourself and such.

UPDATE: This quiz is originally from The White Privilege Pop Quiz For Trayvon Martin by Molly Secours.
