Came across this comment from July 14, 2015 by a former FB friend raised on the exclusive upper westside of Manhattan & educated at Stanford:
“It is important to explain in simple language to most people, specially those who are poorly educated. It would be classist to talk to them the way you speak with friends from Harvard or Stanford.”
Call be a plebeian boor, call me inarticulate, but I have never altered my way of speaking or writing based on the privilege level of those I am speaking with because I do not disdain the intelligence or comprehension level of those without privilege. Often it’s the privileged who lack comprehension of oppression.
