    whats it matter if there are black people that are idiots? that shouldn't lead ANY honest, smart, logical person to be racist.

    your problem should be with the racist, you dont have to hate them but they are the problem, not SOME black people acting bad.
    Because, just as whites dislike white racists that make white folks look like racists, I dislike blacks that make me look like a thug, drug dealer, or a thief. It's not broken logic at all.

    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
    So you're not denying the existence of black privilege, woman privilege, Latino privilege...

    If everyone's privileged, then nobody is privileged - by definition.

    Editting people's quotes so that they say something other than what they wrote will get you a gig up here. If you still have time to edit it, you should do so in order to avoid the infraction. I don't have a problem with it, but if a mod sees it you'll get gigged.

    There are other forms of discrimination invisible to whites in the USA- difficulty getting a cab, being treated worse by police and other authorities, teachers having lower expectations, etc. Whites tend to underestimate the help they get through family/community connections for internships and jobs. Whites, esp. middle class and above, also dress, act and speak "appropriately" as a natural part of their culture. A low income minority person has to learn to adopt these norms to gain acceptance.

    Watch white people sometimes when a minority person, esp. a black man enters the scene. Depending on the situation and the people involved, people will act suspicious, grab their belongings, talk differently, get nervous, be over friendly or unfriendly etc.

    Yes, there is still a lot of white privilege, there is also a lot of class privilege. It is easy to ignore if you don't pay attention.
    And because some blacks have behaved badly, alot of white people react in the ways you've described.

    nope not what i said at all

    i said that people dont use the word privileged, that phrased was never coined "probably" because its based on minority/majority and ratio

    also that doesnt mean "everyone is privilege" LMAO

    back lets say for the sake of argument you want to use the same word "instances" of privileged doesnt translate to everyone nor does it make the other not exist.

    How does anybody else make YOU look like a thug, drug dealer or thief if you are not?

    Smart, objective, rational, honest people dont think like that.

    no OTHER PERSON would ever make YOU look like anything. That would make me plain stupid and retarded to think like that. If i even tried to think that way logic would kick me right in the balls to wake me up.

    its clealry broken logic because its irrational

    From the "crazy idea" that privilege insinuates innate advantage with regard to certain characteristics.

    Not everyone can be advantaged, because it means that someone has to be disadvantaged. Everything has an opposite.

    9.7% are White, Hispanic
    37% are Black/African-American
    4.5% are other single races;
    7.2% are multiple races


    http://homeless.samhsa.gov/ResourceF..._factsheet.pdf

    Homelessness Resource Center

    These numbers show that White males are the predominant population that is homeless in the US...
    Depending on region Blacks/african Americans are 10-22% of the population. so at 37% homeless they are actually over-represented among the homeless and whites are under-represented.
