    And as an addition to my previous post, yep, I was right, pages more of nonsense...

The US is more matured as a society but white Americans of English descent may still have some built-in advantage due to their cultural affinity to Anglo-Saxon institutions set up by their ancestors and they have to make less effort to integrate and get used to the norms and values of American society compared with other immigrant groups.
    With immigrants etc I do agree.

    Very well said.

    the fact remains it still exists though, its alive and well, relevant and obvious, and more than just having the same hue, in america today.
    In that case we can also argue about the existence of black privilege. It is quite obvious that blacks have lower standards for getting into college and have an easier time getting grant money. Are you denying this exists? It is certainly fact, its just a matter of discussing how much, when and where it takes place but not if it takes place.

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.
    How do you prove privledge exists emipiracally?

    Don't worry, one day you might grow out of it and become useful and worth paying attention to.

    Why are you repeating the same thing over and over again? We get, you don't have anything intelligent to say. Don't be so hard on yourself.

    you mean 'am i', not 'are you' .. hmmm... good question...

    Yes, it's always everyone else's fault that you do not have the ability to intelligently support your positions.
    You really do not have any ability to comprehend what I wrote, do you? Is English your primary language?
    Ah, so you are incapable of supporting your position intelligently, but refuse to alter your position despite it's foundation of ignorance.

    Got it.
    So are you simply unable to answer the question, or are you unwilling to do it?
    I'd suggest it's just because it's what you do...

    as i said earlier this isnt an argument the topic is white privileged and its existence is fact.

    and also has i have said many times of course im not denying any other type or racism, discrimination, or privileged based on any other color, religion, gender, age, sexuality etc.

    also as to your second point i dont think anybody calls this other thing privileged because its based on minority/majority. Of course other things happen but since its the minority people never identified it as such.

    ALso i dont know its easier, thats just subjective, im sure there are DEFINITELY cases where it is but easier overall i seriously doubt, again based on numbers.

    But in the end not sure what anything has to do with the fact remains it still exists though, its alive and well, relevant and obvious

    if you want to discuss a different topic feel free to make that thread too
