When we think about the social issues of our age poverty, materialism, and violence are probably the first things that come to mind. But there’s another problem of great substance – privilege.

When we say privileged, we’re not talking about those people who were born into royalty or those with millionaire parents in a simple black and white Poor Vs. Rich comparison. We merely mean those folks who have perhaps had a helping hand or two in life while others weren’t given such assistance. You can’t blame people for being given opportunities, but it’s always good to spare a thought for how the other half lives and to better the better-self in helping those who are not that lucky. In this comic strip below, privilege meaning turns more into a psychological subject, rather than the material one.

Check out this comic to see what we mean. It’s a short story called “On A Plate,” and it’s been “liked” more than 200,000 times. The comic is simple, but we’re sure you’ll agree that the message explaining what a privilege is, is pretty powerful.
