And you no whats so funny is you got white people out

Asked this question once in a seminar full of white people. Got no answers. Have you got one?

In middle school, you was attacked by a girl

So to all the white people reading this the next time you want to trow that I'm better then you because of XYZ out there, remember, everything comes with price........ even white privilege.
Based on your poor writing skills, I'm guessing that price didn't give you an
education. Go back to school, Sheaniqua.

You have no answer for the fact that most whites have no power. You still want to blame an imaginary “race” for everything.
White privilege exists as you delineate, but the fault I find with your analysis is to say “whites” are doing it.
To solve society's problems requires solidarity between all oppressed peoples, not finger-pointing between them. That is exactly what the rulers want, and I'm sure you've heard the phrase “divide and conquer”.
Your mind is weak so you can't even understand or comprehend was I was writing.
You miss the point.

What is white privilege?

It means you have to get your dirty black ass in the back of the bus.

The Black women can ride up front with me.

white privilege is not having people watch you in the store like you're there to steal something, white privilege is not being labled the stereotypical "angry black female" or a "criminal black male" white privilege is not having to worry about getting beat up or shot by the police if you get pulled over. white privilege is not having people assume that you grew up on some kind of government assistance or that the only reason you got into college or got a good job was because of affirmative action instead of hard work. white privilege is getting a good education and using good grammar without someone labeling you as a "sell-out" or acting (fill in the blank)
I get stereotyped all the time if your not a 'normal' white person that has short hair and listens to pop or country, I'm white I get stereotyped all the time I get watched everytime I step in a store just cause I have long hair and listen to metal

Well, that's by YOUR choice. If you cover up those tats, get your hair cut, take a bath and wear a suit, then you could apply for that job as a Bank Manager!

That's one white privilege; The right to opt out...and into the mainstream. Blacks lack this choice. Remember when Eminem was in court for pistol whipping some dude who looked at his girlfriend. How was he dressed?

Like a respectable ultra-white male. Short hair, white shirt and tie, dark business suit...eye spectacles.

Also noted, he lost all the 'black' from his accent and spoke like he was from Harvard Business School!

You whites know how to play the game.

You'll get no sympathy from me, try being Black for a week and see if you survive...LOL!

If you hate being white so much,

Yeah, one Black man in the White House and nearly 1 million Black men in the BIG HOUSE, largely (if not mainly) due to drug offesnes---despite the fact that (as law enforcement agencies report) an equal if not greater proportion of whites use, buy and sell drugs compared to Blacks.
And the idiot OhFrilly thinks that Obama's election somehow refutes the idea of white privilege.
I wonder if the fact that Queen Victoria was once the most powerful person in England (and hence the world), somehow disproved the idea of male privilege? Or whether the fact tha Joe Biden originally came from a working class family disproves the idea of class privilege.

The two initial trials of O.J. Simpson provoked some wry humor from a white former colleague:
He said "The two trials of OJ Simpson do reveal a certain progress in American history. In today's America a Black man can be found innocent if he is RICH, and a rich man can be found guilty if he's BLACK."

My mind is fine. You are a racist. I am not naive enough to not see that.

You are doing nothing to solve anything... solidarity would be involved, but your tiny bigoted mind can't handle “white” people.

And so you remain useless.

I believe that the best response to this is the cliche: The exception proves the rule.

OJ was guilty.

The best saying to come out of the first OJ trial, I believe, was:

The LAPD is so incompetent they cannot even successfully frame a guilty man.

The idiotic “War on Drugs” not only puts a LOT of black males in prison who o not belong there, but also has devastated Mexico as it did Colombia a few years back.

You actually believe that a white can get a job as bank manager simply by dressing appropriately? How naive...

Most whites are struggling to make it and are OPPRESSED. The fact that their oppression does not have the same characteristics as that of black people escapes you, because you are yet another typical Yank myopic bigot.

In fact you are correct, in that Jewish culture does impart an appreciation for education, as well as social justice and other positive traits.

The presence of Jews in the USA has been overwhelmingly positive, despite Henry Kissinger...

Prisoner Count as of 12/31/11 by Race, Ethnicity, and Gender)
As of Dec. 31, 2011, an estimated 1,433,741 sentenced male prisoners were under state and federal jurisdiction. Of these, 465,100 (32.4%) were non-Hispanic White, 555,300 (38.7%) were non-Hispanic Black, and 331,500 (23.1%) were Hispanic.
As of Dec. 31, 2011, an estimated 103,674 sentenced female prisoners were under state and federal jurisdiction. Of these, 51,100 (49.3%) were non-Hispanic White, 26,000 (25.1%) were non-Hispanic Black, and 18,400 (17.7%) were Hispanic.

Looks like 465,100 (32.4%) were non-Hispanic White, 555,300 (38.7%) were non-Hispanic Black, 32% whies and 38% blacks, no landslide here except you distorting the Truth

I'm glad that Angela Davis is focusing more and more attention ofn the prison industrial comples, and that she seems to be getting my friend Cornel West on board.
She describes it as a GLOBAL phenomenon in her book ARE PRISONS OBSOLETE, but she also notices that there is no country which comes near this phenomenon of MASS IMPRISONMENT as the USA.
In the AA community almost ALL of us have at least one kin, friend or neighbor whom we know in the joint--most often for things like getting caught with Mary Jane, NOT rape or murder.

Part one
1. I can if I wish arrange to be in the company of people of my race most of the time.
2. I can avoid spending time with people whom I was trained to mistrust and who have learned to mistrust my kind or me.
3. If I should need to move, I can be pretty sure of renting or purchasing housing in an area which I can afford and in which I would want to live.
4. I can be pretty sure that my neighbors in such a location will be neutral or pleasant to me.
5. I can go shopping alone most of the time, pretty well assured that I will not be followed or harassed.
6. I can turn on the television or open to the front page of the paper and see people of my race widely represented.
7. When I am told about our national heritage or about "civilization," I am shown that people of my color made it what it is.
8. I can be sure that my children will be given curricular materials that testify to the existence of their race.
9. If I want to, I can be pretty sure of finding a publisher for this piece on white privilege.
10. I can be pretty sure of having my voice heard in a group in which I am the only member of my race.
11. I can be casual about whether or not to listen to another person's voice in a group in which s/he is the only member of his/her race.
12. I can go into a music shop and count on finding the music of my race represented, into a supermarket and find the staple foods which fit with my cultural traditions, into a hairdresser's shop and find someone who can cut my hair.
13. Whether I use checks, credit cards or cash, I can count on my skin color not to work against the appearance of financial reliability.
14. I can arrange to protect my children most of the time from people who might not like them.
15. I do not have to educate my children to be aware of systemic racism for their own daily physical protection.
16. I can be pretty sure that my children's teachers and employers will tolerate them if they fit school and workplace norms; my chief worries about them do not concern others' attitudes toward their race.
17. I can talk with my mouth full and not have people put this down to my color.
18. I can swear, or dress in second hand clothes, or not answer letters, without having people attribute these choices to the bad morals, the poverty or the illiteracy of my race.
19. I can speak in public to a powerful male group without putting my race on trial.
20. I can do well in a challenging situation without being called a credit to my race.
21. I am never asked to speak for all the people of my racial group.
22. I can remain oblivious of the language and customs of persons of color who constitute the world's majority without feeling in my culture any penalty for such oblivion.
23. I can criticize our government and talk about how much I fear its policies and behavior without being seen as a cultural outsider.
24. I can be pretty sure that if I ask to talk to the "person in charge", I will be facing a person of my race.
25. If a traffic cop pulls me over or if the IRS audits my tax return, I can be sure I haven't been singled out because of my race.
This comes from an article by Peggy McIntosh called "White Privilege and Male Privilege." Interesting. The article suggests that white women are both privileged and underprivileged; underprivileged as women, and privileged as whites. Patriarchy accounts for the underprivilege, and institutional racism generates the privilege.

26. I can easily buy posters, post-cards, picture books, greeting cards, dolls, toys and children's magazines featuring people of my race.
27. I can go home from most meetings of organizations I belong to feeling somewhat tied in, rather than isolated, out-of-place, outnumbered, unheard, held at a distance or feared.
28. I can be pretty sure that an argument with a colleague of another race is more likely to jeopardize her/his chances for advancement than to jeopardize mine.
29. I can be pretty sure that if I argue for the promotion of a person of another race, or a program centering on race, this is not likely to cost me heavily within my present setting, even if my colleagues disagree with me.
30. If I declare there is a racial issue at hand, or there isn't a racial issue at hand, my race will lend me more credibility for either position than a person of color will have.
31. I can choose to ignore developments in minority writing and minority activist programs, or disparage them, or learn from them, but in any case, I can find ways to be more or less protected from negative consequences of any of these choices.
32. My culture gives me little fear about ignoring the perspectives and powers of people of other races.
33. I am not made acutely aware that my shape, bearing or body odor will be taken as a reflection on my race.
34. I can worry about racism without being seen as self-interested or self-seeking.
35. I can take a job with an affirmative action employer without having my co-workers on the job suspect that I got it because of my race.
36. If my day, week or year is going badly, I need not ask of each negative episode or situation whether it had racial overtones.
37. I can be pretty sure of finding people who would be willing to talk with me and advise me about my next steps, professionally.
38. I can think over many options, social, political, imaginative or professional, without asking whether a person of my race would be accepted or allowed to do what I want to do.
39. I can be late to a meeting without having the lateness reflect on my race.
40. I can choose public accommodation without fearing that people of my race cannot get in or will be mistreated in the places I have chosen.
41. I can be sure that if I need legal or medical help, my race will not work against me.
42. I can arrange my activities so that I will never have to experience feelings of rejection owing to my race.
43. If I have low credibility as a leader I can be sure that my race is not the problem.
44. I can easily find academic courses and institutions which give attention only to people of my race.
45. I can expect figurative language and imagery in all of the arts to testify to experiences of my race.
46. I can chose blemish cover or bandages in "flesh" color and have them more or less match my skin.
47. I can travel alone or with my spouse without expecting embarrassment or hostility in those who deal with us.
48. I have no difficulty finding neighborhoods where people approve of our household.
49. My children are given texts and classes which implicitly support our kind of family unit and do not turn them against my choice of domestic partnership.
50. I will feel welcomed and "normal" in the usual walks of public life, institutional and social.

If it makes you sleep better at night. This is dumb to me and it's just simply being needy and surface oriented. This is not how it is on the African continent i can assure you of that. That's one thing i hate about a white racist they always try to race isolate America or European countries like it's the only population of people on the face of the earth. When I think about being black i don't limit myself to American history either. I think about history as a whole from American white ancestors a**es being kicked enslaved tortured stoned hell crucified and ran out their own damn countries to jewish getting there brains blown out the back of they head for picking they damn noses. But if it makes you happy to be the most evil and corruptive race on the planet than by all mines enjoy it. I had to do the honors of taking a dropping off flowers for mothers day to a white dead B****es grave site and the only thing that crossed my mind was i bet this Rotten B**** is burning in hell I actually thought about spitting on the stone.
