Today I boarded a plane from Texas with a white man wearing a T-shirt that read:
"The Second Amendment: The original Homeland Security" with a scull holding two guns crossed in its mouth.
I had two thoughts:
1. Wow. White privilege at its finest. I'm not sure people who don't have this issue understand the pains we take to *not* look threatening because it can cost us our flight, and for some their lives. Yet he felt totally comfortable wearing that T-shirt to the *airport.*
2. If I complained to the pilot about "not feeling safe" because of his openly pro-violence expression (not speaking a different language or praying) would this gentleman get kicked off the plane and face 13 hours of interogation about his political and religious beliefs?
The reality is if I had said anything the only one getting kicked off that plane was me.
