    What is White Privilege?

    No snarky one liner comments. No adhominems. I want nothing other than an legit argument on this topic so I can understand the minds of those who subscribe to this idea. For those of you who don't know what an argument is, or is not, see below.

    White privilege - Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

    White privilege (or white skin privilege) is a term for societal privileges that benefit white people beyond what is commonly experienced by non-white people under the same social, political, or economic circumstances.[note 1] These privileges are unearned and are distributed based on values of the dominant group.[1] According to McIntosh and Lee, whites in a society considered culturally a part of the Western World enjoy advantages that non-whites do not experience.[1] This leads to the controversy over whether or not White people should be able to enjoy these privileges. The term denotes both obvious and less obvious passive advantages that white persons may not recognize they have, which distinguishes it from overt bias or prejudice.[2] These include cultural affirmations of one's own worth; presumed greater social status; and freedom to move, buy, work, play, and speak freely.[1] The effects can be seen in professional, educational, and personal contexts.[3] The concept of white privilege also implies the right to assume the universality of one's own experiences, marking others as different or exceptional while perceiving oneself as normal.[4][5]

    White privilege is a term used by those who, because they failed in life, have to blame something for their failures.

    Because without examples a theory is null. Evidently everyone wants to complain about white privilege but no one wants to prove it exists. Parish the thought.

    It's a deceitful myth created by Socialists, through fraudulent means, as a political wedge, through which they hope to create a race war, on which they can then claim to hold the moral high ground, as a means to influence the ignorant, into giving them the power to FIX IT... where upon they will only make it WORSE... as a means to acquire even greater power, until they no longer NEED the ignorant, at which time they DESTROY THEM.

    It's been repeated throughout history and is at this point, hardly even debatable.

    perish

    How many examples do you need? You started a thread with a facetious premise. You are not interested in learning what white privilege is. You simply want to argue its existence.

    You are expecting people to spend time writing out examples for you.....only to have you shit on them with thoughtless denial.

    Convince me that yiu are really of a mind to have the discussion and I'll drop a few examples on you.

    So you are looking to disparage whatever examples are provided so you can somehow "prove" that white privilege doesn't exist?

    If you want a serious debate then the onus is on you to prove that the cited definition provided above is not accurate and that white privilege does not exist.

    So where you come to claim that Examples are PLENTIFUL! You, instead of taking the opportunity to offer so much as ONE of just such an example from the plentiful supply of such, you decide to further perpetuate the MYTH?

    Huh... I wonder why a person would do such a thing? Where such a person is presumed to be reasonable and honest in the public discourse?

    That doesn't make sense... . Help a brother out here and post up an example or concede that you have none, through your failure to do so.
