I’ve heard a lot of people who want to end celebrating Martin Luther King Day or African American History Month or Women’s History Month or historically black colleges. “We’re all equal now,” they say.
We are not all equal.
There’s also not a perfect hierarchical shitlist because they are so many intersectional factors that give you privileges or disadvantages: education, location, ethnicity, class, inheritance, race, gender, sexuality, access to internet, language….
But we are all responsible for acknowledging privileges and disadvantages, and making the change we wish to see in the world.
