    I’m white. I’m privileged. Don’t roll your eyes! What I’m about to share with you, is from a meme, and my open eyes wider: I have privilege as a white person because I can do all of these things without thinking twice: I can go birding (#ChristianCooper) I can go jogging (#AmaudArbery) I can relax in the comfort of my own home (#BothemSean and #AtatianaJefferson) I can ask for help after being in a car crash (#JonathanFerrell and #RenishaMcBride) I can have a cellphone (#StephonClark) I can leave a party to get to safety (#JordanEdwards) I can play loud music (#JordanDavis) I can sell CDs (#AltonSterling) I can sleep (#AiyanaJones) I can walk from the corner store (#MikeBrown) I can play cops and robbers (#TamirRice) I can go to church (#Charleston9) I can walk home with Skittles (#TrayvonMartin) I can hold a hair brush while leaving my own bachelor party (#SeanBell) I can party on New Years (#OscarGrant) I can get a normal traffic ticket (#SandraBland) I can lawfully carry a weapon (#PhilandoCastile) I can break down on a public road with car problems (#CoreyJones) I can shop at Walmart (#JohnCrawford) I can have a disabled vehicle (#TerrenceCrutcher) I can read a book in my own car (#KeithScott) I can be a 10yr old walking with my grandfather (#CliffordGlover) I can decorate for a party (#ClaudeReese) I can ask a cop a question (#RandyEvans) I can cash a check in peace (#YvonneSmallwood) I can take out my wallet (#AmadouDiallo) I can run (#WalterScott) I can breathe (#EricGarner) I can live (#FreddieGrey) I CAN BE ARRESTED WITHOUT THE FEAR OF BEING MURDERED (#GeorgeFloyd) White privilege is real. Take a minute to consider a Black person’s experience today. #BlackLivesMatter
