This Candy is not for Poor Kids.
It is a natural fact that all kids love candy. However,
is also a fact that not all kids have the luxury of being
able to eat candy or in many cases even enough food to eat.
People who live in third world and other poor countries simple
don’t have enough money to be able to afford such luxuries
as candy for their children.
They are lucky if they can afford a roof over their heads and food to eat.
This is so heartbreaking! The look on his face makes me want to cry. :( I hope the person who took the photos bought the little boy candies after.
For example, it looks to me as though a cornerstone of white privilege is simply not having to think about race, not having to think about my color and how people are going to respond to me because of it. Given my living circumstances, I could easily go through an entire day and have absolutely nothing to remind me that the subject of racism exists–even though I may walk past several Latinos on my way to work, buy a paper from an Asian man, and talk to the Black teller as I make a deposit at the bank. To come in contact with persons of color is not the same as being aware that racism is still a raging problem in this country. The ball is in my court about whether I’m going to think about it or not, how much I’m going to think about it, etc.
A person of color does not have this choice. To live and to function in this society is to be forced to think about race and racism whether one wants to or not.” —How I Benefit From White Privilege
