On the privilege spectrum

Hi. My name is Sharon, and I have white privilege (WP).  A mere color gene passed unknowingly to me by both parents has smoothed my life’s path to a degree I can no longer ignore.  Fact is, I could just as easily have been conceived by two Black parents. And a Black me would predictively have a different life trajectory in America, one less fair, more constricted, perhaps less valued, and very possibly more dangerous.
