I know how lucky I am, and it makes me feel like shit. I don't need someone who is paid to do so reminding me of it.
Word. I apologize that my remarks insinuated anything to the contrary, but the ire has been high on the internet lately and it bothers me that others saying similar remarks usually takes a pretty harsh contrarian stance and rejects all the things you outlined, but that's on me and I didn't ask.
Where I live is kinda the mecca for a lot of activist, liberal arts post-grads, and once I was even dis-invited to a potluck because the house had a strict "only two white cis-males under our roof at a time" policy. While I was cooking. I do not count people like that amongst my friends or allies.
And since you're probably pre-med(?) and focused on your career, it makes a lot of since as to why this wasn't very relevant.
Good luck with the rest of your finals, if you have any left!
What field are you aiming towards?
