In what ways could you argue that your personal or your family's privilege is a result of the Spanish Colonial Social System?
The spanish people were important in their colonies because they ruled everything. Also, because they are white and they don't have to worry about being enslaved or discriminated, they are civilized and they are a modern civilization, my family is privileged because we are hispanic descendants, we speak Spanish, we are white and we have money to be in a very important place in social class, Also I was born on the United States and I speak both Spanish and english fluently so I have more opportunities in life to communicate and learn more.

If I would live in that society I wouldn't be so much forced to do what people wanted me to do so I would do what i wanted. But I would be forced to do exactly as my religion says because if I don't do it I would be punished and maybe expelled from my house and family. If I had the opportunity to study in a school I would finish my carrier and try to be successful on it. I'm a boy so I would appreciate every opportunity I had to study and be a successful man.

Today, I took the Understanding prejudice test in my computer. The test consisted of what are your preferences between european american people and African people. The test also associated different words and if they were good or bad for me. I did my best as quickly possible and the results explained that I had a strong Automatic preference for white people but also stated that I don't have a fast Automatic response about prefering white people over black people. I don't have a really big preference in races because personally I don't judge by their race although I feel a little bit more comfortable and self understood being with european American people.
