“You have such a privileged life. Don’t waste your opportunities.” You’ve probably been told that a million times. I know I heard it so much that I got sick of it. But it wasn’t until recently that I understood exactly what privilege was. We will discuss privilege in more detail in class, but until then, take a look at this illustrative comic which takes us through the important moments in the lives of Paula and Richard, two typical kids from a poor and a privileged background respectively. Once you read the comic, let us know your thoughts in the comment section!
