Dear Influencers: Time To Check Your Privilege


First and foremost let's start with an open mind. I know thinking about privilege and even accepting it is hard. Talking about it is hard. As a person of color I see privilege happen all too often, But this is not about race, because contrary to what some people may believe (and stop saying this is China's fault or that this is a Chinese virus because that is racist) this virus that is changing our society as we know it knows no skin color, no social class, it has no boundaries.

So if you clicked on this thinking this is about you, it probably is. Sorry not sorry.

I am disappointed on the influencer community. This moment in history has shown us so many uncovered areas we didn't even know they lived within us, a moment where we HAVE TO think about an "us" vs and "I" because if we don't the consequences will be catastrophic to say the least. Yet, I am seeing posts on the daily about influencers posting about their fourth designer purchase during quarantine?! I'M SORRY WHAT?! 

Let's back up and take a deep breath...
