This week in my Management in Workforce Diversity class, there was a discussion about the trending concept of white privilege. This is the ability a person has to use their skin color to gain opportunities that many minority groups may not have access to. This privilege is not limited to access to resources and opportunities but also amounts to physical appearances. The physical attractiveness or appeal of a person heavily influences people’s perceptions of that individual. This coincides with their personal judgments which unfortunately leads to biases and in extreme cases discrmination. The effect of a person’s attractiveness has severe influences, not only personal but societal perceptions of minority groups such as People of Color (POC). As a result, this may ultimately lessen this group’s opportunities within society. But how does physical attractiveness help one group while hurting another within society?
