Iโ€™ve said it once and Iโ€™ll say it a million more times, when someone talks about privilege/oppression and you, as a privileged person, feel the need to say, โ€œWeโ€™re not all like that!!1!โ€


It (1) adds nothing to the conversation and is a derail, (2) is an obvious, unnecessary statement and (3) actually ends up implicating you, which is the opposite of what you want. If itโ€™s not about you, GREAT, donโ€™t make it about you.
