    I never said that - I said I've never been given any sort of privilege because of the color of my skin.

    You're question isn't worth answering. I already know the answer... just like I already know there's no such penal code. I just want to make you look more incompetent in this thread, but that may not be possible since your confusion seems permanent and persistent.

    You don't know the answer because your claim that his being sent to Rikers was illegal is BS.

    It was perfectly legal to send that kid to Rikers.

    So prove me wrong and show me the NY penal code allowing him to be held for 3 years at Rikers without a trial..... I'll wait.

    So after saying you won't answer the question, you're now answering the question? And your answer doesn't show that he was jailed illegally; it shows that he wasn't given a speedy trial

    I never said that the law allowed someone to be held for 3 years. I said the law allows someone to be held without being charged.

    Like I said, the "privilege" is at its core not having had to overcome any externally imposed barriers on your success, the kind of barriers that those of other races, religions, and women in many cases DO have to overcome.

    Or to put it another way, I can't speak for you, but I know in my personal or professional life I've never for one second had to worry about my race or my gender or my religion. It has never occurred to me that any of those might be a disadvantage in any way. That's not true for blacks, women, or for other races or religions, for whom who they are IS often/frequently/constantly a barrier to their success.

    Finally, if I was worried number 1 about career success and could pick, I'd pick what I am - white male Christian. In most areas of the country, in the vast majority of jobs, that's still true and it's not close (except obviously race/gender/religion specific - I'd make a poor lingerie model...).

    It doesn't mean you were GIVEN a thing, or that your road was easy, or that your success illegitimate or in any way unearned. You're misunderstanding what the term is supposed to imply.

    Wrong.
    A comparison of sentences for a specific crime that does not consider the other variables that go into a specific sentencing means absolutely nothing.

    I think that what he is saying is that you don't have to be given any special privileges......because the system is geared in your favor from the beginning. The "system" is geared for the white male to succeed.
