This adorable cartoon explains privilege in the most nonconfrontational way possible

We can learn a lot from a snail and a caterpillar. We might even make the world a cooler place while we're at it.

I have no idea what it's like to be a snail. Or a caterpillar. Or *you*.

And you have no idea what it's like to be me.

Funny how that works, huh?


Do you have struggles?

I definitely do. We all do, in one way or another. Big, petty, annoying, unfair — the struggles in life *are* real.

You could be:

gay

transgender

living with a disability

a different religion

a different race

wealthy

not wealthy

a snail (?)

[insert fact about your life here]

The bottom line: You are you. Not someone else.

It can be hard to see a different perspective or understand what someone else's life is like because you walk in your shoes — not theirs. And because of that, it makes it that much easier to assume you know what's going on with them.

But if you take time to listen and learn...


And imagine what it's like to be in their position...

It'll help you understand your privilege, and it'll show others some serious respect. I'm working on it myself, and I'm pretty sure if we all try it, we'll be way more accepting and the best humans we can be.

What's not to like about that?

Eviction seemed imminent for Dasha Kelly, 32, and her three young daughters Sharron, 8; Kia, 6; and Imani, 5, on Monday. The eviction moratorium expired over the weekend and it looked like there was no way for them to avoid becoming homeless.

The former Las Vegas card dealer lost her job due to casino closures during the pandemic and needed $2,000 to cover her back rent. The mother of three couldn't bear the thought of being put out of her apartment with three children in the scorching Nevada desert.

"I had no idea what we were going to do," Kelly said, according to KOAT.
