People Have It Worse Than Me

Yes, and people have it worse than them.

Privilege is real, and checking it takes maturity and self-awareness. We do not, in fact, want to hear about the tanking of your mutual funds on a day when unemployment claims quintupled from a year ago.

But ranking suffering on a privilege scale will lead to less empathy, not more. We need more.

“Empathy is good. Lack of empathy is bad. Holy math says we’re never not together.”
