Trying to explain water to a fish.

Explaining white privilege can be like trying to explain water to a fish.

Water is not the fish’s fault. Water allows the fish to live but it doesn’t magically stop all bad things from happening to the fish. Mice don’t do as well in water. Also not the fault of fish. Water is not meant to be lived in by mice. Doesn’t make fish responsible for this fact simply by admitting the truth of the statement, mice can swim but wont do as well living in water as fish.
