Tenderloin and SoMa Supervisor Jane Kim recently visited a SRO and educated its residents on privilege.
TRIGGER WARNING: Assault, Trauma
“There is a privilege to being white in this country. I’m not saying that if you’re white, you have a lot of power as an individual. But if you’re white, you might be more likely to find a white President, a white Senator, a white police chief. I mean, I’m just saying, right?”
Her lesson to the privileged audience pushed me to wake up and check my own privilege.
San Francisco Local Blogger Privilege
- I can get pageviews by posting about dogs and bar food.
- My blog is a safe creative outlet for my otherkin (I'm a multiple system and some of my headmates post on this blog as well).
- I can delete triggering comments.
- I'm not oppressed by the FCC restricting my free speech.
I encourage all of you reading this on the internet, first all of to consider your literacy and technology privilege, then to share in the comments ways in which you have benefited from an unfair and oppressive system.
