Confession #7

I was talking to another dietitian about opportunities for students, and she said it was good for students to have experience working with people who are underprivileged. I asked for clarification since that word can mean many different things to different people, and she said, “oh, you know, like volunteering in Africa” as if the more than a billion people in dozens of countries are all the same and all equally underprivileged. She had no clue that saying that could be offensive to anyone.
