(A poem from the book “Dwelling in Dissonance”)
Not an accusation
No verdict expected
Not an attack
A historical fact
A present reality
For participative change
Some questions to think thru and talk thru:
What feelings do you have about privilege?
Would you describe yourself as privileged or not? Why?
How have you responded to being labelled “privileged”?
If you are privileged, what do you do with your privilege? What can you do with it?
What pitfalls are involved in using the power that privilege gives?
