Privilege Will Rock You to Sleep
By Joe Gerstandt
I benefit from a tremendous amount of privilege. I have, throughout my life, received the benefit of the doubt, from people, organizations, and institutions, including when I did not deserve it

 

Recently a Facebook friend of mine provided the following disturbing account on his Facebook Page:
“It’s such a small thing nowadays, but the AM/PM (convenience store / gas station prevalent in Southern California) attendant told a gentleman in front of me to “Speak English” three times. I can’t believe this is how we greet people now!

 

Even some people who work in the diversity and inclusion field stay in their comfort zone, and still almost only interact with people who are like them.
