The “More-ness” of Privilege
Joel Leon.

Disappointing to see use of Trump photos as a way to frame what is essentially your racist point of view. — hey I am Canadian and Metis, so I have no dog in this fight — but i can see what it is for what it is —

Lets look to recently past Leonard Cohen for some less racist instruction — from his song A Bird on a Wire- the lyrics say —

‘I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch,
he said to me, “You must not ask for so much.”
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door,
she cried to me, “Hey, why not ask for more?”’

So Joel — you can continue to use your position to complain about your birth designation or you can use your position to seek out the meaning behind the words of a champion —

‘I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.’

Content of their character — hmm now that is something to study — the content of their character? — maybe the person who asks for more sees that content of their character demands more — and skin colour has nothing to do with what they know to be theirs when they claim it.
