Who Took My White Privilege?

“White Privilege was not a phrase when I began working at a peach packing plant in Thomaston, Georgia at 14 years of age. I was too young to understand the deductions from my weekly pay. Now I get it….my duty was to help support others with their privilege of sleeping in, having babies and living off government assistance programs. Somebody owes me a lifetime of reparation checks.”
