White privilege is knowing that your work will not be regulated to the “niche” section of a mainstream bookstore, conveniently where it will not sell.
White privilege is knowing that you will not have to send a proxy to pitch your story because people think PoC art and literature isn’t “mainstream” enough to be appealing.

Always reblog, because I’ve noticed the media salivating over all these *white* weed entrepreneurs for being so “ingenious” and “savvy businessmen”, while ignoring the the mostly Black, Brown and poor victims and survivors of Amerikkka’s “War On Drugs”, and the ongoing racist and classist injustices that keep locking away Black, Brown and poor people in masses while giving white people who commit the same offenses less or no jail time at all.
And it costs like $8,000 non-refundable application fee to even get started running a legal weed shop.
WHO had access to that kinda money?
