Dear Jeannette, thanks so so much for your kind words. They truly mean a lot to me. I got the idea for this article because many white people I know here in Switzerland refuse to acknowledge they have privilege. I needed a way to get them to reflect on exactly how privilege manifests itself in everyday life. And after reading this, many have told me they are beginning to get it.

I was surprised at how this piece flowed straight out of me. I wrote it in one sitting — as though these words really wanted to get out on paper and embrace the eternity of the internet.

I enjoy your work too Jeannette, it is outstanding. Thank you for all your amazing work.
