“Lucky”

To be honest, though, one thing I have noticed when upper middle class liberal people talk about money is they use the word “lucky” to forestall questions of systemic reward and punishment. As in, “I was lucky to graduate from school with no loans,” or “when I moved to New York City, I was lucky my family sent me $500/month to help with expenses,” as though anyone could have this good fortune by winning a coin toss or a roll of the dice, as though those dice aren’t v e r y loaded in this society. As though mere luck is all you need in this circumstance, when really a heaping dose of privilege gets you so much further.

  3. gayrightsactivia said: @kkludgy I think semantically you are correct. I also think it’s disingenuous to use it that way because it implies that anyone sufficiently lucky could have similar circumstances. Like I am lucky of I win a raffle. I am privileged if I win the raffle by buying 10x the number of tickets.
  4. kkludgy said: I guess privilege is a kind of luck tho? Like I was lucky to be born white. I had no part in it but it gave me a lot of priviledge

  10. xanadontit said: I’m likely being really generous here, but when I hear people say “lucky” in this context it seems like they are acknowledging that they stumbled into privilege through no work of their own. It was sheer luck to be born into a wealthy family, not something they contributed to or worked for necessarily. So yes, it’s still tone deaf but I’ll take that over the defensive “you have NO IDEA how hard my great-great-great-grandfather worked so I could sit on a yacht all day!”
  11. flyingupoctaves said: Yeah privilege and luck are definitely intermingled. With really wealthy people, I feel like they use the word “lucky” because that’s more palatable them to “privilege.” “Luck” implies the universe was shining on them. “Privilege” implies their parents are their source of status.
