Watching TCM Though White Eyes

As a white, male watching
Sabrina Fair on TCM and
loving the loving competition
between the characters —
handsome Humphrey Bogart,
William Holden and beautiful
Audrey Hepburn as they pranced
their way through upper class
financial, white privileged lives,
I never would have thought of
the white privilege part before
and then I wondered what people
of color thought of this film of
white privilege as they watched
these white, privileged people
prance their way through white
privileged society to a white
privileged conclusion and then
I watched the original Pink Panther
with music that sounded just like
a Henry Mancini soundtrack and
is and wondered about that, too.
