    That applies to anyone regardless of skin color or ethnicity.

You see, while superficial political word games throwing around PC terms like "white privilege" jazzes up Progressives, it turns off the rest of America who know it's bull**** since we lived through it. Black. White. Latino. You name it.

    It's certainly good fodder for the 1% upper crust to discuss over 60 thousand dollar a plate political dinners though, and the dopes who buy into it.

    Then you're the exception the general reality. Just because there's a white christian male bias in our systems doesn't mean every white christian male is guaranteed to benefit from it. It just means that theirs a must higher percentage of white males benefiting/succeeding compared to non-whites. Also indicates a less likelihood, but not impossible, of being treated poorly simply because of being a certain color or religion or gender or sexual preference.

    And that's my point - there are millions of exceptions with white skin. The issue isn't skin color but economic wealth. Privilege comes with wealth not skin color.

    That is part of it, but it's not all of it. I can see you're too personally bitter to see that. So be it.

    So racism is dead? Conscious and subconscious? If it's not, and given that almost all the real power is still held by whites, mostly white males, then being something other than white comes with a disadvantage. It's really that simple.

    IOW, it was perfectly legal so you're going to run away from my challenge

    You can be jailed, for a limited time, without being charged and the article doesn't say he wasn't charged.

    Power is no longer exclusive to whites. There are a lot of other races in power. And even though a lot of "power positions" are held by white people, it does not do a damn thing for other 99% of white americans. The way our country works, very few in poverty ever get out of poverty. More people fall into poverty than climb out. And most of those who do climb out of poverty only make it to about lower middle class if they are lucky. The reason you see so little people of color who do get into power is because those in power, and those who control their money after they have left power, do not concede power. And since it is near impossible for anyone of any race to go from poverty to powerful in America, many minorities are trapped into that system. But so are all the poor white people. Poor is poor, and rich is rich. Money is what matters. Rich white kids do get more opportunities and priveledges than poor black kids, but along those same lines, rich black kids get more opportunities and priveledges than poor white kids. It is the GREEN that matters not white, black, brown or yellow. I happen to be the same race as some of the richest people in America, and as it turns out, they don't share with me either. Some of you can say white people get more, but 20 million people struggling would disagree and would disagree that thier white skin has afforded them any extra benefits.

    Saying someone is not honest about race is the same as saying people are not honest in discussing stuff. It is an unframed position.
