Why is it such a sensitive subject when it comes to admitting and accepting that some of us carry so much of it?
As a general rule, privilege is usually something you’re born into or naturally obtained from pre-established circumstances. It’s not something to feel guilty about if you learn how to let it humble you while appreciating the opportunities you’re afforded.
That being said, the most common privilege in America is White Privilege. And although so many people still love to deny it exists, I’m not here to argue with them. I’m here to show you the privileges I became more aware of from traveling abroad, as a solo, African-American female. Yes, African-American because both my parents were born in Nigeria, while I was born in California.
In me revealing the privileges I became aware of, I hope you too, can come to terms with yours.
