Privilege

NOT EVERYONE CAN IDENTIFY WITH HOW IT FEELS TO BE IDENTIFIED BY A PHYSICAL TRAIT. HOW I’D LIKE TO HAVE MY PRIVATE SPACE WHERE NO ONE LOOKS AT ME WITH IRE. THAT MUST BE SIMILAR TO WHAT A PERSON WITH DARK SKIN MUST ENDURE. LIKE THEM, I CAN FEEL THE LOOKS FROM EVERYONE THAT IS NEAR.

HARD TIMES HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCED BY PEOPLE OF COLOR AND THE DISABLED. LATER ON, MANY PEOPLE HAVE TO EXPERIENCE WHAT I GO THROUGH WHEN THEY HAVE A STROKE. BUT WHEN THEY ARE YOUNG, THEIR LIVES ARE FOCUSED ON THEIR LIVES AND THE WORLD AND THEY KNOW IT. THIS IS HOW WHITE PRIVILEGE WORKS.
