I wanted to take a second to mention privilege. It's something with which most American Jews nowadays were born and raised.
There was a time in the generation of our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents when Jews struggled and worked several jobs. They took whatever jobs they could find and they were greatful to work.
However, nowadays, the greatest privilege afforded is the gift of extended childhood. Parents are allowing their children to live at home in order to attain a college education as a norm. This is a privilege that many have. However, some people don't have such a privilege. When your parent dies when you're in high school, you lack a privilege that your peers have. Why is that we spit on and look down on those who've faced a lack of privilege?
