This comic strip does very well express the dynamic of privilege. One’s starting circumstances determines the kind of socialisation and education one has, and that largely influences how one’s life turns out.

(I was going to write some kind of critique of discussions around privilege, but I couldn’t do it without strawmanning; there’s nothing in this comic I disagree with).
