    Great. Where's their paper detailing their research? I don't even see a link to it in the National Review article.

    Red:
    Though I don't expect the OP-er to answer because he didn't "coin" the phrase, I am curious to know WTH is "research based on privilege and identity?"

    I've written and had published a few research papers and read literally hundreds (thousands?) of them. I've yet to come across any "research [papers/findings] based on privilege and identity." I've come across research about privilege and identity, but research founded on those two things.

    What you've provided me with is research about/on, not "based on," privilege and identity. To wit, note the search parameter you used: "research studies on privilege and identity." Your search terms notwithstanding, I too have encountered plenty of research about privilege and identity, but not any that's based on those things.

    From the National Review article:
    ...a hesitance among academics to question research based on privilege and identity...

    I don't know whether you truly don't know the difference between "about" and "based on," which I why above I hyperlinked to content that may help you understand the differences; however, to fully understand the difference, you may also need to review the function of prepositional verbs.

    Gosh, thank you. And you're right; I'm far too stupid and uneducated to know the difference but, luckily, have you on whom to depend.

    Your remarks sardonic tone did not escape me; however, I chose to disregard it because I have no relationship with you that warrants my giving such a tone credence.
