The term isnt implying that some people with white skin behave a certain way. The term "white" implies all people that have white skin and nothing less. "White privilege" is a generalization its a logical fallacy. But then you are tryimng to speak for me so I guess you will believe that you are right no matter what here.2.) thers no perhaps at about it, its a fact it doesnt mean the entire white race is racist LOL
also not some all but ONE as far as i know and its not about getting with the program (which is very telling to your biased dishonesty view) its about the fact that if it was used to BASH a whole race and make them look bad way would all the white people acknowledge the fact it exists LMAO
you are making up that it means all whites are racist and that all rights participate in and or receive it, this is simply not true
LMAO extent, how much, where, who and why? Its a fact that its subjective then? lol come on who are you trying to BS here? You assert its a fact then define the fact as subjective.3.) no i never did, YOU misunderstood what i called a fact and what i called subjective
its a fact it exists
its subjective to what extent, how much, where, who and why its happens
try to keep up and not let things blend together sine you have obviously already made up your mind no matter what facts you are presented with
I never denied that racism exists, but go ahead keep lying in my face buddy I know what I have said and what I think despite you trying to say otherwise.4.)nope, there no BIGGER IMAGINARY thing going on its just racism conducted by people belonging to the majority
fact remains it exists, you not liking the term is meaningless, the term hurting your feelings is also meaningless.
The proper term is "In-group favoritism" in sociological terms..5.)and yes, i have said many times with many other posters lots of other bigotry, misogyny, privileged, special treatment, favoritism, discrimination exists also, it doesnt change the fact that white privileged exist.
You like to act like you are in the know and are staying on topic. The problem is that you are ignorant of the actual topic. The actual topic despite the huge lack of knowledge flying around this thread is actually Ethnocentrism. Indeed I am on topic since I am disputing the relevance of the term "White privilege". But my friend are are trying to force me to believe that the term is relevant and are trying hard to stop me from criticizing the term. You have even went as far as trying to assign me your version of my argument. Im actually taking a neutral stance by admitting that factual observations exist but I do not assert an actual side that I would be taking. Despite your attempts though I still have not taken a side on the issue other than to say that people with light colored skin are not the sole perpetrators.so im not caught up on anything im staying on topic and talking about things that matter to this topic. Nobody is singling out anybody this is another lie.
we are talking about white privileged because its the OPs questions and the title of the thread LMAO
if you would like to talk about a different topic make a thread about it
try to keep up because you have factually been proven wrong and are just making stuff up based on false assumptions that plainly and simply is not happening. Honesty will serve you better the kneejerk illogical emotion.
Oh by the way, fact remains it exists
not sure why this fact bothers you
Sometimes subjects are much deeper than the superficialness of a OP's question. But go ahead keep believing that its simple, if you want to stay on that level.
Also, 13-8 is 5, not 4. Just some math help there in case you haven't caught up yet.

2.) false this is what you want it to mean in an attempt to dismiss the facts but it doent and never did
3.) why are you lying, AGAIN no BS, again words, and sentences have meanings.
its existence is a fact
how much of it is present, where and when and why is subjective
this is basic common sense and doesnt mean anything close to the lie you just stated
4.) feel free to ADD that term if you like but i all the terms i used are already proper.
5.) another lie, you say this yet you are the one going off topic and i never did
the reality is, it is that simply since the discussion is does it exist.
It does, thats a proven fact.
If there are other topics youd like to discuss feel free, they wont impact this already established and proven fact
Not everyone that benefited from white privilege is bigoted. Because in truth almost all white people have benefited. Is it fair? Of course not but most of life is not based on that kind of situational fairness. The laws give everyone rights of equality but not equal circumstances. I wish I were born with more money or the ability to acquire it or had better looks and health. You play the hand your dealt to the best of your ability.
You're born in this country (USA) with more rights, privileges and wealth than most of the developed world, are you going to devoid yourself of these benefits in order to be on a more equal footing with the rest of the people? Or are you going to accept that your status as an American comes with these inherited assets? The hierarchy of our civilization is not always based on fair actions, unfortunately but it is the path of evolution.
I experienced just a little profiling myself as a perspective job applicant and lost 2 positions for not being the correct color or sex. I was furious and thought it completely unfair, so I can't imagine living an entire life with those negative implications.

And the length makes it even worse. That means you have been averaging (by my quick calculation) over 23 posts per day not for 3 1/2 years...but for 4 1/2 years.
But it does explain a lot.
Have a nice day.

Considering that a large portion of the posts on this thread are examples of white racism, doubting the existence of white privilege seems strange to me.
But, as I said before, it can be like describing water to fish. When you are white, you don't notice that the police don't pull you over very often, you assume that is normal. You don't notice that people in businesses treat you better, you assume that is normal. You don't notice that the building owner returns your call when you ask about the availability of an apartment for rent, you assume that is normal. Targeted minorities don't always know whether they are being discriminated against in specific incidents either, but after awhile a pattern emerges.
However, there are many statistics establishing the existence of white privilege. It is most obvious when it comes to the criminal justice system where your race is likely to determine whether you get stopped, how you will be treated, whether you will be searched, whether you get arrested, the charges against you, the likelihood of a conviction and the length of your sentence. But again, when you are white, you may think it is normal when a cop lets you off with a warning when you are caught.
