Hands Up Don’t Shoot, Denver variant

DENVER, COLORADO- It may be an example of white privilege to accessorize “HANDS UP DON’T SHOOT” with an expletive hand signal. Of course African or Hispanic or Native Americans face greater risk when signing that gesture. Is it more effective to fight the system with your privilege or without it? I’m suspicious of critics who would rather that activists check their privilege and not USE IT. That certainly suits the defenders of class and power. I would prefer to exploit every privilege as we battle to win human rights and privileges for all.
