I believe that Marcella is suffering from sort of socially-induced guilt complex—as if she has to feel guilty for being able-bodied, which I think is nonsense. I am tired of people accusing themselves of privilege as though they should feel guilty about being who they are. This is absolutely ridiculous and I wish it would stop.

I would never consider myself as a person of privilege because I am able-bodied. Maybe it’s because I’m African-American, but I think this privilege “talk” is way too politically correct and……
