Megan Rapinoe On White Privilege

Megan RapinoeMegan Rapinoe (July 05, 1985 -)

Everybody has a responsibility to make the world a better place … Being white is part of the reason why it’s culminating with me. The system is alive and well, so I think it’s important to just say that. It’s not my fault I’m benefiting but I am, so it’s my responsibility to acknowledge that and to try to dismantle that system. I think it’s really important to say those words, say ‘white privilege’, acknowledge the fact it’s happening.
