Can I just say how totally offensive I find Blanche’s latest tweet?
It has a grain of truth. But also? All of us are the product of circumstances entirely beyond our control, and the successful don’t like to believe that. If everyone gets exactly what they deserve, then the successful get to feel like they deserve their success and that they are superior to other people who are not as successful! Whereas, if luck or privilege is part of why they’re successful, they might have some responsibility to help the less lucky/privileged to succeed. But such a responsibility would be onerous.
It makes me angry.
(Which is fine! I don’t want to like Blanche.)
I am very curious whether Jane will meet Blanche and interact with her on camera, and what those interactions will be like.
