    You have not countered my argument with any specific facts about, well, anything.

    ...and we are talking about now... not fifty and certainly not 400 years ago.

    What, TODAY, makes America a system of racism that gives white people, specifically white men, privilege?

    I will counter with the Constitution, Freedom of Speech, Equal Rights Amendment, Brown v Board, Education, Black President/Sec State/Senators/SCOTUS/Joint Chiefs/etc.

    That is not a contradiction... the argument is about the USA. In the USA being white is not a privilege... in Ho-Dunk Mississippi it probably is... JUST LIKE in Compton, CA... being black would be a privilege... or Congo... just like on Lesbos being a woman would be a privilege... who do you think benefits in Japan?

    I don't waste time explaining systemic racism to people who deny that it exists. It's the same phenomenon as denying climate change and claiming vaccines give babies autism.

    Yes, being white in the US comes with intrinsic benefits. That is not a controversial statement.

    You're conflating individual statistics with the intended claim of systemic overall. No one saidthere weren't poor white people. it is without question that racially speaking, whites hold the strings of power in government and in business. And those power strings are the front of the line.

    No. Those are not even remotely close as analogies...

    Many people misunderstand that it is actually economic status of a person that gives the benefit... not the race.

    The city should be sued - and it is a lawsuit they would win. Hopefully it would cost the city millions in attorney fees.

    This is what fascists do. This is what the Democratic Party is, a neo-Nazi, racist fascist terrorist organization.

    Certain gaffes are revealing. It's called a Freudian slip.

    Well, that's absurd obviously. Societal benefits don't have a single source. Only a moron would claim that economic status doesn't confer benefits. Likewise, only a moron would claim that race doesn't confer benefits.
