COLLEGEPAPER CALLS OUT "COGNITIVE PRIVILEGE" OF SMART PEOPLE
Thereare many kinds of privilege besides white privilege: cognitiveprivilege, for example. We now know that intelligence is notsomething we have significant control over but is something we areborn with. We are living in a society in which success isincreasingly linked to one’s intelligence. ... Thus, the accidentof having been born smart enough to be able to be successful is agreat benefit that you did absolutely nothing to earn. Consequently,you have nothing to be proud of for being smart.
