All these people who could afford drivers– all these middle class-or-higher white folks– got the hero’s welcome home. I winced hearing the driver talk about what a nice thing that was. This is really a fascinating- if not entirely scientific- study of privilege and entitlement.

Unless somebody gave them a free ticket or they were a prisoner being transported. But those situations are not too likely.
