I think this memorable monologue by Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone) in the film Clueless pretty much sums up our feelings on the Muslim Ban. Cher is also a great reminder of the potential we all have to acknowledge and challenge our privilege. She never apologizes for who she is but we see her character use the benefits of her individual privilege to contribute to the greater good. In a capitalistic culture and patriarchal society we have no choice but to be complicit to a certain extent. We are always a part of a problem and yet we can still be part of a solution. Be conscious. Be compassionate. Be willing to get to the kitchen and rearrange a few things so that we can all party together.
