    White "privilege" is simply a manifestation of White productivity. Blacks with
    talent have no problems finding employment.

    Yeah, that's one of the reasons I told Black Manta that "white guilt" could hinder honest discussions of white privilege. People who feel guilty about being white are insecure about their racial identity and its implications. That alone could lead to complete denial of white privilege or an exaggeration of how much privilege there is in order to cope with that insecurity. In short, it's not a good look.

    And imparting non-superficial stereotypes to people strictly on the basis of superficial tendencies adds nothing to humanity... Plus is supremely ignorant.

    To claim someone is in a different 'race' just because they have more or less melanin in their skin is ignorant in the extremis.
    Race is an existing social construct, regardless of our opinions on the existence of such a construct. In a perfect world full of puppy dogs and candy canes, there would be no social construct that is called race, but we don't live in a perfect world. Because the social construct exists, people experience its effects psychologically.

    It is the opposite of ignorance to acknowledge reality.

    What does the "Psychological effects of prejudice" have to do with white privilege?

    Employment and education are easy, has nothing to do with white anything. A majority of blacks go to school in poorer neighborhoods. Less tax base, lower quality teachers, lower quality education, higher drop out rates. Now lets add in drugs, gangs etc and you have a whole list of why it has nothing to do with any kind of white privilege. Again, it's about money. Most of your sources say the same damn thing.

    So as soon as you come up with something better and read your own links.

    I bid you good day.
    You said that you were going to "tear apart" my sources. All you've done is give your unsubstantiated opinions on the subjects I put in bold while I provided you with ample research that you clearly haven't examined. All of the research I provided you handles your response so whenever you feel like being less ignorant, you should read them. But I'm sure as hell not about to go through all of your lazy, unsubstantiated opinions after I went through the trouble of getting you genuine research only to have you not even attempt to seriously consider it. I will, however, address one of your points though because it amuses me.

    You asked me why the psychological effects of prejudice are about white privilege. Well, white privilege is defined as the advantages that whiteness provides over non-whiteness whether those advantages are material, social, legal, psychological or some other category. That you would ask me what do "the psychological effects of prejudice" have to do with white privilege illustrates your ignorance on the subject. Anyone who has done even a minimal amount of research on the subject wouldn't have asked that question. So just as white people have the advantage of not dealing with systemic discrimination; they have the advantage of not dealing with the well-researched psychological effects of systemic discrimination.

    You've done two things in this "discussion": 1) Proved that you are uninformed about white privilege. 2) Proved that you don't want to be informed about white privilege. I can't work with someone who doesn't even want to learn so this will be my last response to you. You have a good amount of research. I've done all I can do. I genuinely hope that you will do more research into the subject instead of just assuming that you have knowledge that you don't.

    I haven't studied those places as extensively as I've studied the United States so I don't have as informed opinion about the role white privilege does or does not play in those areas.

    Dude, race is just one way out of many that we categorize other human beings. It isn't inherently problematic; it's only problematic when people attribute false deterministic attributes to race (e.g. being black means you're stupid). You're giving it way too much power.

    If its a social construct, then I can deny its significance to anything.

    Sorry pal, the reality is that more melanin in one's skin does not constitute anything more then the most superficial differences.

    You might as well call people over 6' tall a different 'race' OR people with red hair a different 'race'.

    And just because the masses believe in 'races' - doesn't mean it is correct. The masses used to believe the world is flat and women are genetically inferior to men and a whole bunch of other ignorant ideas.

    And when people think that any personality characteristic is inherently actually "caused" by a person's race, they are attributing false deterministic attributes to race.
