Get it off your chest...list your life advantages (privilege)
I was born into a 2-parent household.

Both of my parents worked to provide.

Both of my parents instilled in me a good work ethic.

I was taught morally wrong from right.

From an early age, I was both awarded and disciplined when appropriate.

When 15, my first taste of work privilege was landing a job sweeping a local grocer's parking lot by hand at 5:00 AM M,W,&F. (I still get mad when dirtbags throw their trash out in parking lots)

I graduated in the middle of my class from a public school.

I went to college (state college - half of it on scholarship).

I chose to pursue studies in a field which would lead to gainful employment, rather than what was most interesting to my 18-year-old self.

I had enough tenacity to stick it out for 5 years and earn a degree.

I landed a job before graduating college.

I have hauled my arse to work everyday for the past 15 years and have only taken 2 sick days in that time.

My family is comfortable.

I'm not sure which of those things I should be ashamed of, so I'll leave that to the progs to decide.

Get it off your chest...you'll feel much better.

I was raised bankrupt in ghetto apartments with an abused mom, dead brother, and drunk dad.

Never felt my privilege until becoming an adult. Now it prevents me from being pulled over and searched for pot, b/c...you know, middle aged white guy.

Is that because you love your life, or because you think lesser of black people?

I get to eat at Chick Fil A, shop at Target, drink Bud, and watch the NFL.

All because I'm not a bitch arse snowflake.

I'm 42 and I have checked the mail daily for my white privilege check since turning 18 and it is still yet to arrive. With interest and such when the system for oppressed white privileges finally catches up to me and bestows my back pay I intend on buying a NFL franchise once the price for one hits rock bottom.

I'd say none of it. Progs will say all of it...because it's the inequality that is the problem. You doing better than others...not matter the reasons, is the problem.

Every privilege I've had growing up is related to the sacrifice and hard work of my mother and father. As a parent now, I work as hard as I can to do the same for my kids.

I'll never feel ashamed by either of those things.

Be honest with me.

Do you think your list is comprehensive and complete?
