Privilege – The Better You Look, The More You See

“Equality before the law is probably forever unattainable. It is a noble ideal, but it can never be realized, for what men value in this world is not rights but privileges.” – H.L Mencken

Yesterday, I went someplace. I saw privilege. She stared back at me, I saw confidence. But his nose went up. Seemingly so.

It wasn’t a pride-like situation. It was just a natural occurrence. I was humbled.

I longed to be her. I know he definitely doesn’t want to be me.

So many circumstances like this, happens every day

Sometimes they rub the difference in your face. Sometimes they try to stay humble about it, and look unto you with pity… empathy, thanking God they weren’t you.

It doesn’t matter. You will be humbled.

A society not built on equality will soon become dysfunctional.

A rat race
