For the people that don’t understand or are pretending not to understand, here are some signs of the Privilege:

  • you never repeatedly get pulled over for routine traffic stops in your neighborhood
  • routine traffic stops never involve more than one police cruiser
  • you never match the description
  • your automatic response to flashing lights in your rearview mirror is to pull to the curb and make sure your hands are clearly visible
  • you have never had utter the following statements:
    I am going to reach into my pocket for my wallet
    I am reaching into the glove compartment for my insurance/registration
  • you’ve never thought I should record this just in case something happens
  • you’ve never been told you speak really well by a police officer
  • you’ve never been asked where you got such a nice car
  • you’ve never been told you don’t look like you belong here
