I feel no guilt about living in the relative comforts of the often castigated "white, middle-class America."

My heritage, social status, and financial opportunity are little more than an accident of my birth; I had no say in the matter.

To feel guilty would be misplaced emotion.

What I do feel, however, is a duty to utilize my education in a way that is beneficial to all of us.

With privilege, responsibility.

  1. I completely agree. You can't help the circumstances of your birth, but it's up to you to decide what to do with them.
