Understand Your Privilege

Updated: Feb 26, 2020

"I don't think white people understand how much their unlimited amount of freedom and privilege extends into their lives. There are many things they can freely that Latinos or POC communities have to be hesitant about. For example, I watched this short clip of Hasan Minhanj, who asked the question, "What's the one thing you would do if you woke up white?" Two of the response were: run in an airport, and the other is tell a cop "My taxes pay your salary, buddy." The first one is much simpler and the latter more extreme but these two responses easily put into perspective the amount of power white people have over their daily life and activities. White people just don't understand why we "complain." They don't understand the little way that we are oppressed that eventually build up so much that we feel inferior to them no matter what we do."
