We all have different degrees of privilege and one of the hallmarks of it is ignorance; not knowing what we aren’t afflicted by. We benefit in many ways in the world
Race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, parents, education, upbringing, location, and simple timing and luck are all factors in privilege. For many of us, in some unexpected ways. I had a really peaceful day today and didn’t encounter any dangerous situations nor did I expect one to occur. In that way, I’m very privileged. Many people wake up – even in America – in fear for their safety. I think we need to keep this in mind.
