As learn more about the world here at SLU, I realize that my present reality is drastically different from many people in the world. I have grown to know and accept that I am very very privileged. The fact that I am at a good school, in the USA, and was raised in a middle class home means that there are myriad opportunities at my finger tips. I therefore have a great responsibility in this world. I must learn about social injustice (where ever I am) and seek to make a positive difference. I made this video because, I would like my peers to understand the responsibility that comes with privilege.
My intention is not to guilt trip anyone either.
Let me know how effective this is, does it make you more socially aware?
