Words and Privilege

Words
Dictionaries are ever-changing. Definitions are expanding, which means a constant change like a moving target. Revisions to words are vital to creating permanent knowledge with the understanding we need.

Privilege
When we speak privilege in our society we view the place we inhabit. Those that have privilege also have power. We live in a hierarchy that is invisible to those of privilege in so many instances. Those with little privilege experience these colonial systems, racism, gender discrimination and other harmful factors. Those who contribute to these abnormalities believe they are standing and taking what is rightfully theirs; they think those without privilege are stealing through individual corruption.
