A few words on privilege

PeoplePaul McAleer

I have the luxury of being in a very privileged place.

I'm a white man living in the richest country in the world. There is an astounding number of things that I have not had to confront or concern myself with simply because of the color of my skin, my gender, my sexuality, my language, my income, my ability level, and my size, amongst other things.

I acknowledge that the privilege I have is bullshit, it is absolutely not fair, and I do not want our society to be this way. I also know that I haven't done enough in my life to really make a difference with regard to these injustices yet.
