    I know this will probably not go over well, mainly because it's the truth.

    black people are poorly represented, rappers that objectify women and talk about money as if that's the only thing is in this world. black children grow up with these role models and believe it that's how they should act. the stereotype is perpetuated by the entertainment industry but only because the demand for that kind of thuggery is there.

    Asians are portrayed as intelligent and ambitious, so really it's asian people who have the cultural advantage.

    the only fix is the culture has to change, if this pissed you off then you're happy with the culture you live in.

    First, I think the effects of Affirmative Action are over stated in most people's politics--there are not that many industries where you run into it unless you are employed by someone who does government contracting.

    Second, I know a lot of blacks who lived the real deal discrimination and I take time whenever I can to discuss their experiences with them--not the politics, but what it was like for them.

    Third, I still encounter on a somewhat regular basis those old "No colored" covenants in land--not just suburban houses, but farmland too, to believe that blacks' lot in life have suddenly changed for the better. I have heard people sitting around spinning stories tell me in passing about people they were not able to promote even though they were the hardest workers because they were black.

    Is there a white privilege? No. Is there a black stigma? Yes.

    May as well be. People change when they find out how much money you have.
    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.

    It's not just money or money at all sometimes.
    I've learned that connections play a larger role in the employment, than probably anything else.

    I've probably had the hardest time moving up in this world because I don't know anyone.

    I've done pretty well, simply because I'm wealthy enough to not have to know anybody.

    I'm not saying money doesn't talk, it certainly does.
    I'm just relating my experience with moving out of my "where I grew up area" to a completely different and largely unfamiliar rural setting.
    The community I moved to, is heavily reliant on the "who you know" system.

    I've been here for 8 or 9 years and really just started making head way.

    I go to college and apply for scholarships...oops, not this one, that's for blacks. Not that one, it's for women. Not that one either...Hispanics. Oops, another black scholarship.

    I go take a civil service exam. Wow I got a 97. Aw crap, LaShequah got an 84...plus 10 for being black...plus 10 for being a woman. Well, I can apply somewhere else.

    I'll go apply for another job. Hmm...seems okay. Wait, you mean you get a tax break for employing that person over there, even though not as qualified? Well damn.

    You must have blinders on to how the world works, "wise" one.

    Re: Does "white privilege" exist? If so, should it be corrected?

    The second option is a loaded answer...

    I think it exists in some kind of fashion. Nowadays it's starting to be a disadvantage due to all the minority only opportunities and laws.

    What the government should do... is to treat ALL people equally. The government should be the one to set the example that every person is considered the same and that ethnic backgrounds and genetics have nothing to do with your rights or benefits. Right now, this system supports racism, it forces us all to think of people in terms of races.

    Please, tell me, what is the difference between a poor white person and a poor black person? According to the government there is a HUGE difference. You should value ALL people the same, who are YOU to justify that poor black/hispanic people have it harder than a random poor white or asian family. You have no idea of their family history, what injustices have been in their past, etc.

    If the reason of giving minorities extra opportunities is because they are more poor on average, whynot give those opportunities to ALL poor? YOU are literally valuing human beings higher than others.

    Going with all this... OF COURSE we should have STRICT anti-racism laws, and every case should be considered very seriously. THAT is where you make the difference. If a particular district or county in poor and is not receiving equivalent funding for schools than other areas... then MAKE funding the same for ALL counties/districts!

    having anti-equally laws preserve racism. It is literally built into law on what a black man is and how he has different access to benefits and opportunistic. According to government there should be no such thing as a "black" person... just person.
