I have had a very blessed life. I have not had problems or issues but I do believe it is because of the way I look. It is not something special that I have done. I didn't realize it until about 8 months ago when I participated in a line up where people were told to step forward or back based on specific questions how much white privilege has helped me based on not only my appearance, but also from the fact that while my mother is Mexican, my father was White and therefore, we lived in a good area and attended private school and received a good education.
I am learning in my uncomfortable classroom and researching things I never heard about and hopefully, it will help society as I become a more vocal ally.
