privilege… wrote a post about it

here is the thing about privilege – it is weak and lacks strength and foundation

If I am operating outside of privilege

I dont have to make you ugly for me to be pretty.
I dont have to make you stupid in order for me to be smart.
I dont have to make you poor in order for me to be rich
I dont have to make you miserable in order for me to be happy

but if I am operating inside of privilege the reverse is true.

you saying ythat you are pretty is an attack on my beauty
you saying that you are smart is an attack on my intelligence
you saying that you are happy is an attack on my happiness
you saying your life matters is an attack on my life.
