Has being short made you understand white privilege?

Heightism

As a short Asian man, it helped me to understand it better. Both share a common attribute. Those who are a part of the privileged group don't realize they have it and those who aren't a part of the group realize the price they pay for not being a part of that group/class.

No, it has helped me to understand what it feels like to be discriminated against. That said I don't think the problem is that any specific ethnicity is privileged, I think the problem is that each ethnicity has their own unique privileges and the problem is that everyone does not share the same privileges. It's easy to recognize other peoples privileges, but difficult to recognize ones own.

Black Male:

Super Special Privilege Powers:

1. Super lethal deadly political weapon called the racism card which can be used on any enemy with no more effort than a few words to make an accusation. 

2. Women assume black men are well endowed.

3. Coaches just assume your good and you make the team with little scrutiny.

4. You can beat up anyone of any race and it's not considered a hate crime even if it is.

5. It is assumed you cannot be racist.

 

Asian Male:

Super Special Privilege Powers: 

1. As an engineer I've noticed that managers often assume the Asian guy is always right.

2. Definite advantage when it comes to getting a STEM job.

 

Feel free to add the white male someone, since I am one I think someone who is not would be much more qualified.

Yeah, but all of what you mentioned about "black men" are lost if he's under 5'10. None of the Asian privileges are mitigated by shortness.

Very true.

Suicide rates seem to be the best and most objective metric with which to quantify human misery, yet nobody talks about the suicide rates of short men. My estimate based upon fact A men make up 80% of suicides in the U.S. and that according to the studies I've seen short men are twice as likely to kill themselves than tall men is that 53% of all suicide deaths are short men who make up merely 15% of the population (30% of male population) yet nobody talks about this. It's all gender equality, equality for minorities... Yet if you look at gender women who make up 20% of suicides have a very high quality of life based on this metric. Since minorities only make up a (obviously) smaller portion of the populous we have to look at suicide rates to see how much they suffer. At present white people kill themselves at a rate of around 18/100k just barely higher than the rate of Native Americans. Asians and Black people kill themselves at a rate of around 6/100k (Most of which are probably short males.) So why is race and gender all anyone ever talks about, sounds to me like short men, white people and Native Americans are the people who are really suffering and nobody cares about them because it is not fashionable to.
