    I personally think that this is far more wide-spread than any color-based bias, and further, has been ingraining itself in our very culture, whereas bias based on skin color is slowly but surely being excised from same.
    I know down in the Southeastern Conference those fast black running backs and those giant black offensive linemen drive some of the coolest cars you've ever seen. Not to mention all those $500 handshakes from the white privileged boosters.

    Did I say the store owner would not be vigilant with other customers?

    Log out, vote, clear cookies, vote again. Rinse and repeat. Its the very reason that all of my polls are always public. I don't care who votes what and don't hold it against them. I just care about a poll being honest. (not saying that you would vote this way...but others would and have in the past)

    Hmm never knew that! Time to bring the fraud! But anyways, if someone actually did that to rig a internet forum poll, they have to be pretty pathetic!

    If he is being more vigilant with one race, then by definition he is being less vigilant with another?

    As Wiki defines it: "White privilege (or white skin privilege) is a term for societal privileges that benefit white people beyond what is commonly experienced by non-white people in the same social, political, or economic circumstances" White privilege - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    based off your question, definition and the simplistic yes or no framing theres only one answer and that answer is yes, there is.
    now having said that it is a much deeper conversation than that but yes the fact is it exists in a form, the form can be honestly debated but not the existence.

    So you think the Liberal newspaper, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported the murders of the two dead drug dealers (who also were without privileges) down the street from tonight's playoff game for me to use as an anecdote?

    BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.(who also were without privileges)
