    While the disparity has decline markedly in recent history, Yes, whites have enjoyed societal and economic priveledges that weren't and in some cases still aren't available to various minority groups. The disparity is greater still when you further dissect demographics such as religion and gender in some cases.

    Every time Affirmative Action gives a job to a black person less qualified than the white person going for it, every time the Rooney rule causes someone to hire a black man due to pressure, every time a lawsuit gives credence to empty cries of racism - you marginalize the impact of blacks who succeeded by their own merits, within the system. You spit in their face, and the work of white race apologists and people who push for "tokens" set them back and make them question the validity of their own work.

    Congratulations. This bud's for you.

    Of course this exists, centuries ago "whites" had the position and wealth in most countries....A logical result that can only be changed by enough so-called race mixing which will take millennia.
    I think this may be ever so slowly changing, even today...
    Why was the "other" option missing ?

    I wish, maybe I would not have had to work so hard for everything.

    but no never did any of my relatives hand me a big stack of money and tell me not to let brown people have it. every advantage I have I struggle for.

    It's only a privilege if you have money. The only color that matters is green. If you're poor or even middle class, it doesn't matter what color you are. You're just a means to an end, and if you got the money, all those means will line up to suck your cock for a little piece of that pie.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Yes, I once wanted to "friend" you on DP until I found out you were a white guy.

    Sounds like the first paragraph of "Everything I Learned Hanging Out At Interstate Rest Stops".

    There is a middle class privilege. I know plenty of well off blacks. I know a bunch of lazy ones too.

    Yes, No, Other.
    It's complicated.

    Some of it exists just because of skin color and some exists because of inherent cultural attitudes/practices.
    That doesn't mean that a white person didn't work hard for what they got and that they automatically had privilege, it doesn't mean that a black person got to their position because of legal privilege.
    It's just complicated.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
