You are "other" when you are in a foreign culture, you are literally outside of the culture, so your privileges are a moot point in this case.
Are they?

It seems to me that if there is one ethnic group that enjoys confidence that they won't be harassed by cops for no reason, and another that doesn't, that seems like it is "privilege". Or, say, if I know that I'm allowed to buy meat without ration coupons, but other people need ration coupons. Or whatever.

Also, consider examples like, say, colonial states, where a small power structure armed with guns gets all sorts of "privilege"... Surely that counts?
