Thought of the day

I’m generally not a fan of the word “privilege”. It sounds like an uppity (in the non-racist sense) word that people use to be condescending. It is important to recognize the greater fortune some of us have over others, but I don’t see the use of hoity-toity words as helping anything. Besides, it’s accusatory, as if it’s the fault of the fortunate that they have “privilege”.
