    If blacks are not well regarded as a race or culture because of high crime rates, violent tendencies, poor job performance, difficulty learning job skills, illegitimate children, etc., to the extent that employers prefer hiring whites, that phenomena is NOT white privilege. That is black self-nullification.

    Yes, I think that white privilege does exist. Being white has given me opportunities that a lot of minorities have not been able to have because of America's racist past. I'm not sure how you level the playing field though, except through laws protecting against discrimination.

    Depends on the socio-economic context of the country. How was the country founded? What were historical race relations like in those countries? Asking on whether 'white privilege' exists in X country pretty much begs the question: Who lives in the country? In Nigeria, there is no such thing as 'white privilege' because the history of the country has left pretty much no white people. However there exist 'Yoruba privilege' and 'Igbo privilege' as they pretty much run the country. Again, to define whether X group is actually benefiting from privilege you have to first know the country's history and current context. As it stands, in the American context, white privilege certainly exists. However, as I've stated in my post, it's not something you get simply because you're born white. It has to do with bigger historiographical currents that are not immediately obvious.

    What we have now is black privilege. Apply for any gov job like the post office or the forest service and you go to the head of the line, president too.

    I would LOVE for you to give me examples of how being white has helped you.

    3.) pick 50 more ways, my factual statment is still not impacted or changed

    4.) you keep saying this but its a lie and false

    of course as always if you disagree PLEASE point out and factually prove what i am dodging LMAO
    youll have NOTHING

    i cant wait to read this
    Just because you say "fact", "change" and "statement" a lot doesn't mean you've said anything meaningful.

    Being disingenuous and insincere, acting like you don't understand my simple comments is not a strength, nor admirable.

    And honestly it makes you an undesirable poster to engage.

    Yep, you're right. Ebonics doesn't fly.

    if you say so, fact still remains you changes nothing and my statement stands

    now you are just making stuff up, i dont understand it because it MEANINGLESS, disagree, prove its meaning, you made the statement simply back it up LMAO

    the most telling part is you NEVER back up your claims, hardly/barley answer questions and when asked to support your posts, you dodge it

    not looking for you admiration or desire since you cant be hones, support your claims, participate in logic/civil debate and you ignore facts

    dont like the results the solution is easy, be honest and or able to support your false statements with logic, reality or facts

    good luck!
