Other than the fact that the pump adhesives I use are all either transparent or white (and I don't mean Caucasian flesh-toned, I mean stark white!) I'm not so sure I agree that being a white person with diabetes makes me privileged. I could cite the pediatric endo who treated me for the first third of my d-Life (Hispanic), and the various caretakers I've had, and I think it more has to do with where I lived than what they are capable of. When I lived in Long Island, my endo was an orthodox Jew. Now living in northern New Jersey, my doc is Italian. I feel like when I've been treated at University/teaching hospitals, I've been seen by more a more racially diverse group.
The woman whose picture is on the Sof-sensor box is not white... and she gets to eat carrot cake! (And Natalie HATES that... the cake part, not her being Asian). Is that a privilege?
Perhaps I'm naive, but I don't believe the diabetes care someone receives has anything to do with their race. Economic status and ability to pay for it, yes... that's just the way it works in the United States. But to believe that a white person would be given test strips, gratis, because of the color of their skin while a person of color would have to pay through the nose for it is, to me, ludicrous. Again, this is my own opinion - I've never expereinced it.
