by Adriana Domínguez
The continuum is where I exist.
I must navigate the imposed map that has no compass.
Your opinion is always valid.
Your word is taken at face value.
Your education and credentials are never questioned.
Your sex and color allow you to command.
U are so luck. Y?
I must have backing for what I believe.
I must always justify what I say.
I must prove my qualifications.
My sex and color remove me from a world of validation.
Do you recognize your privilege?
Do you include others in your license of freedom?
