Best answer to these sorts of questions, because the rabbit hole of privilege v. underprivileged v. No privilege runs deep.

But one thing is clear…the more privilege that you do have, the more justice you are likely to get, in any system. Anne Frank’s story, sad as it is, being globally known, is definitely a sort of privilege, and a sort of justice, that other little girls in the world, will never have. Many of these girls are black and brown, but many not even that (Jeff Epstein’s victims).

Anne Frank’s story is so well known because she was connected to someone with privilege (her father). That privileged person told her story; and that was a good thing. It was a story that needed to be told. It was a good thing to have Anne Frank’s story told (as it was extremely optimistic…Almost a gift.) The thing is, right now, we have a good 25 million (at least) worse stories that are not being told. That are swept under the rug. That are completely ignored. They certainly would not have that same optimism if told. There are far worse stories happening right now, in America, in Africa, in Mexico, in Central and South America in Palestine.

It is wrong to act like Anne Frank’s story is the only story of suffering or the worst story of suffering. There are millions of these stories, happening right now.
