    This phenomenon has no racial boundaries in my experience. Invariably, when I finally get around these idiots, they are texting.

    Down here if a person isnt driving so well it is likely that they have on a cowboy hat (no matter their race). But that is probably just because it is easier to single out and remember drivers with cowboy hats.

    I mean, do they have asian privileges? Is that it?


    Why is it that when a white person does something worth praising like graduating college or having a good job or w/e, it's played down as being because he has privilege. I think it's dishonest and takes away from the merit. When an asian graduated college or has a good job and is living well off it isn't diminished even though both groups have high graduation rates. Why is that?

    There is no such thing as race "privilege" in the way the OP and others try to make it seem.

    Everyone gets what he deserves. if you work hard and put your mind to work you will succeed. Everyone faces the same adversity everyday.
    You do drugs, you go to jail.

    Whenever I see all those statistics about the number of blacks vs whites who go to prison for drug posession why is it that nobody talks about # of possesions. Prior convictions or amount carried.
    It's all sanitized to paint a pretty picture.

    I'm a critical thinker and I don't like it when things show up as being clear cut. It smells of dishonesty. It smells like someone is trying too hard to make a point that, if context were provided, it would vanish.

    In the USA, the only people who have some hint of privilege are the politically-well-connected. They have privileges. As in things that they shouldn't have but have for no merit.
    I used to think like this.

    FACT, he didn't type what you said and you had to make a lying comment. FACT and undeniable. Your concession is the noted.

    There is nothing prohibiting a smart, hardworking black person from rising to the very pinnacle of success in this country. We have living proof of that. This isn't 1862 anymore.
    You skipped right over black athletes. Of course that small chunk of the U.S. population has NO privileges whatsoever. They're treat like stray dogs. Absolutely NO respect.

    Police can briefly detain a person to ask him questions if they have reasonable suspicion of criminal activity. They can use substantial force if necessary, for example to prevent the detainee from walking away, but they may not force him to move very far from where they first encounter him.

    Investigatory detentions are sometimes called "Terry stops" after Terry v. Ohio, the 1969 Supreme Court decision that established the "reasonable suspicion" standard they must meet to avoid being unreasonable seizures under the Fourth Amendment. Reasonable suspicion must be based on articulable facts--i.e. it must be more than just a hunch.

    Police may ask the detainee to identify himself, although not all states require him to do that. Some of the states that do require self-identification require an ID document, but in others it's enough for the detainee just to tell police his name.

    Probable cause, which police need to arrest a person, is a more demanding standard than reasonable suspicion. Information police acquire during an investigatory detention, including their observations of the detainee's demeanor and behavior, may sometimes give them probable cause to arrest him. If not, they must break off the investigatory detention after a few minutes. If it goes on too long, the detainee would arguably be under arrest, but without probable cause.

    The Court held in a later decision that reasonable suspicion is determined based on the totality of the circumstances. It's sometimes hard for courts to decide if police had the required reasonable suspicion, and I don't pretend to be able to make that call just from the information in some newspaper article.

    It should be obvious that if the only fact police could articulate to justify a Terry stop was that the person detained was of a certain race, that would not satisfy the reasonable suspicion requirement.

    On that very subject...BLACK PRIVILEGE

    Black privilege - Metapedia

    Black privilege manifests itself in numerous forms:

    Blacks have the right to take pride in their race. Whites don't.

    Blacks can never be racist. Whites are always racist, even if they don't try to be.

    Blacks get to play the race card. Whites don't.

    Blacks never have to feel guilty about being black. Whites are trained to feel guilty about being white.

    Blacks have the right to make blacks only organizations like the Black Student Union and the Congressional Black Caucus. Whites don't.

    Blacks have the right to never take responsibility for their own actions. Anything bad which happens to a black person can be blamed on racism or white people. Whites have to take responsibility and apologize for their actions.

    Rich black people have a right to be rich. Rich white people don't.

    Black people have the right to demonize white people. White people don't have the right to demonize black people.

    Black people are excused when they are prejudiced against white people. White people are never excused for prejudice against black people.

    Black people are a "protected class." White people are not.

    Violent crimes by whites on blacks are "hate crimes." Violent crimes by blacks on whites are just "random" crimes.

    Blacks have the right to affirmative action and minority set-asides. Whites have to earn their positions.

    Blacks are "cool." Whites are "squares" and "rednecks."

    Blacks have the right to say words like "nigger," which whites are never allowed to use. They have the right to incessantly repeat the word "nigger" in front of white people, to intimidate them and keep them in their place.

    Blacks can make the most racially insensitive comments and, more often than not, no one blinks twice. They are allowed to insult others without repercussion.[1]

    Blacks can spend their rent money on designer handbags and then complain about how they don’t have the same economic opportunities as everyone else. And they get away with it.[2]

    Black men are sexual supermen. White men are sexually inadequate. Black men have huge penises. White men have small, inadequate penises.

    Blacks have "civil rights". Whites don't.

    Blacks are in prison because of racism. Whites are in prison because they're criminals.

    Black jury members have the right to acquit criminals, if they're black.

    Blacks have the right to put a halt to any policy, statement, symbol, statistic, outcome, word or expression they find offensive. Whites have no such rights.

    Blacks are morally superior to whites.

    "[Blacks] enjoy cultural cache around the world as victors over oppression and the hard reality of what that looks like at this point in world history. The music that they enjoy, the clothes that they wear, their very mannerisms carry a certain amount of gravitas."[3]

    Blacks can assign collective racial guilt to "you white folks." White people cannot do the reverse because that would be racist.

    White people everywhere, and at all times, bear guilt for the crimes of a minority of white people in the past (e.g., slave owners, Adolf Hitler). Making blacks bear guilt, as a race, for the despicable crimes of their criminal minority is stereotyping, racist, and an insult to reason; after all, no one should ever be blamed for the acts of some unrelated person.

    Blacks have "black culture." Whites are not allowed to have white culture.

    African-American studies is a celebration of blackness and black culture. Whiteness studies is a demonization of white people and white culture.

    White people need to undergo diversity/sensitivity training. Black people don't.

    "... any generalization--favorable or unfavorable--about any minority that someone does not like is by definition "racist" and deserves to be suppressed--as long as it is said by a white person. Black diversity consultants, in contrast, can parade, without a shred of empirical evidence, the grossest racial and ethnic stereotypes with virtual impunity."[4]

    It's racist to point out racism by blacks. It's never racist to point out racism by whites.

    Whites have to walk on eggshells around blacks. Blacks don't give a **** what whites think.

    Blacks have the right to riot and commit violent acts in response to perceived grievances. White people have to obey the law at all times.

    Blacks have the right to never be portrayed as criminals or low-lifes in films or on TV. Bad guys on the screen must always be white.

    Blacks have the right to never be ridiculed, mocked, belittled or laughed at. Whites have no such right.

    Black criminals have the right to have their race censored in media reports.

    Facts which cause blacks embarrassment or cast them in a bad light must be suppressed. Facts which cause whites embarrassment or cast them in a bad light are reported as is.

    Blacks can silence and intimidate whites by calling them racist. Whites can't silence and intimidate blacks because that would be racist.

    Forcing whitey to apologize shows black power and clout. Whites can never force blacks to apologize because that would constitute a lynching.

    Whites are held to a system of 'sensitivity' requirements that do not apply to blacks.

    "Whites are monitored, pestered, and punished for preposterous reasons--for a look, for an innocent word, for wearing a T-shirt, for expressing a plausible argument--but blacks can say almost anything with perfect impunity."[5]

    "In discussions of race between black people and white people the conscious black person is always right; is always the ultimate authority on questions having to do with race and racism; must always be regarded as the ‘injured party,’ or the oppressed. . . . [Whites] cannot possibly be expected to be objective about questions of race."[6]

    Blacks may work for explicitly racial goals but whites may not.

    Blacks are permitted to notice race. Whites are not.

    "It is quite acceptable for either party to explicitly go after the black, Hispanic, or even the Jewish vote. In fact both parties gain an indispensable moral authority by doing so. But it is absolutely verboten for either party, or any white candidate, to appeal to whites as a racial identity group. Racial identity is simply forbidden to whites in America and across the entire Western world. Black children today are hammered with the idea of racial identity and pride, yet racial pride in whites constitutes a grave evil. Say 'I'm white and I'm proud' and you are a National Socialist."[7]

    A black person who punches a white person is a hero standing up to oppression. A white person who punches a black person is a racist.

    It can be publicly admitted that blacks are superior to whites in certain pursuits (i.e. basketball). It can never be publicly admitted that whites are superior to blacks in other pursuits (i.e. winning Nobel prizes in science).

    When blacks are overrepresented in a desirable field, it is due to their abilities. When whites are overrepresented in a desirable field, it is due to racism. When blacks are overrepresented in an undesirable field, it is due to racism.
