I simply stated that whites are not the top earning immigrant group in the US. - that title goes to the Asian Americans, at present. You were the one that decided that "most" whites benefit from white privilege even though more whites than blacks are poor in the US.
    If you think my posts have defended the term "model minority", you don't read well. What YOU are invoking is the model minority stereotype of Asian Americans - a stereotype that is primarily perpetuated by whites and is ultimately a myth - a myth that many Asian Americans reject because of how inaccurate it is and how much it harms them and other people of color. I suspect that you know you're invoking this myth which means that if you continue to play dumb, I'm not going continue this interaction. Playing dumb is disrespectful.

    And no, I did not decide that "most" whites benefit from white privilege. ALL WHITE AMERICANS - every single one - benefits from white privilege and the fact that you think that poor white people negates that fact demonstrates that you don't even know what the term "white privilege" actually means. White privilege refers to racial privilege and it coexists with CLASS privilege, GENDER privilege and other types of privilege. All these types of privilege intersect. So, for example, a straight poor white female enjoys heterosexual and white privilege, but suffers from class and gender disadvantage. A gay rich black man enjoys male and class privilege, but suffers from racial and sexuality-based disadvantage. How each aspect of these two people's identities affects their lives depends on a variety of factors.

    Again you use two conflicting arguments; 1) that race/gender confers some universal +/- status to each and every member of that group and 2) that many individuals do not get that +/- status because of some offsetting factors (e.g they are gay).

    So you can't articulate these powers you claim I have....I have to "demonstrate" that I agree with you?

    Nope. You said I have powers; what are they?

    We all know that women are gifted with many powers, but they have nothing to do with the color of their skin.
