Privilege Police

Privilege Police Stickers

Privilege lurks everywhere. You never know when it will jump out of the bushes and tackle you. I have certainly found this out the hard way. I spent a majority of my childhood mired in the chains of my brown-skinned femaleness.

Yet, to some my athletic build and reasonable attractiveness makes me part of the privileged class. Funny,  I don't feel "privileged" when mall security follows me around solely on the basis of my skin color.

Still, the self-appointed  cadre of Privilege Police demands that I carry around guilt for all those whom will never benefit from the comeliness of their appearance.
