My conversation in the Sprouts parking lot today…
20-something white woman: You’re a racist.
Me: No I’m not.
20-something white woman: If you’re not a racist then you benefit from white privilege.
Me: No I don’t.
20-something white woman: Then why did you take that parking space?
Me: Because it was open, my truck fit, and Sprouts frowns upon parking my truck across their doorway like a racist white privilege border wall.
20-something white woman: You’re clueless.
Me: And you’re adorable. So I’ll see you at the looting party on Saturday?
And off she stormed.
What made me a white privilege racist, you ask?
I parked in space that should be reserved for someone who’s been oppressed.
