Google White Privilege. You will find it referred to just as I did. Argued and a concept. All of which is subjective.
Don't worry, you'll get the hang of it one day.
GOOGLE??? I don't need to google anything. There's this little thing we like to call around these here parts; and that's an education. LOL

I just gave you factual evidence of white privilege. They aren't subjective, or opinions. These are facts.

Maybe I'll let a white man explain it a little bit better than I can.

Exactly. This economy is built like a house of cards and is about to crumble on Obama's watch.

Meant to say sickle cell is not directly related to us being biologically different racially.

OK, let me see if I can explain. In psychology, genetic memory is a memory present at birth that exists in the absence of sensory experience, and is incorporated into the genome over long spans of time. It is based on the idea that common experiences of a species become incorporated into its genetic code, not by a Lamarckian process that encodes specific memories but by a much vaguer tendency to encode a readiness to respond in certain ways to certain stimuli.

Genetic memory is invoked to explain the racial memory postulated by Carl Jung. In Jungian psychology, racial memories are posited memories, feelings and ideas inherited from our ancestors as part of a "collective unconscious".

Some parapsychologists have postulated that specific experience is encoded in genes, and proposed this as an explanation for past life regression.

YOU KNOW, IT'S NOT REALLY HARD TO FIND WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR IF YOU REALLY MAKE AN ATTEMPT TO FIND IT. PEOPLE LIKE YOU BAFFLE ME WITH YOUR IGNORANCE AND STUPIDITY. DO YOU HONESTLY BELIEVE THAT GENETICS FROM YOUR MOTHER WILL NOT SOMEDAY SURFACE IN YOUR GREAT GRANDCHILDREN?!?

As for Jews, Jews who are thriving may or may not be the direct descendants of slavery. But Jews didn't experience the form of slavery where they were killed for reading, taught to hate other members of their group based on skin tone, taught to worship their slave owners over their very own people. I've never study much on Jewish slavery, but I've never heard of any of these incidents happening with their group.

Sickle cell is not biologically racially identifiable. It's not like sickle cell only affect a certain race simply because they are that race. Race doesn't exist biologically, so the explanation for sickle cell is that any particular group who spent a large portion of existence in a certain region on earth, is more prone to certain physical traits and health issues. But there is no biological connection between people of color and sickle cell other than what region they came from. People from eastern Africa are not affected by sickle cell the same way as people from west Sahara Africans are. Do you get it now????

Scientists trained flat worms to curl up when exposed
to light by electrocuting them every time the light was turned on. A pure Pavlovian, conditioned response. Even more unfortunate for the flat worms is their ability to regenerate themselves if cut in half . An amazing thing in itself;cut them in half and the head end grows a new tail and the tail end grows anew head. When the scientists did just that they found something bizarre;
when exposed to light both versions of the worm responded according to the
conditioning. How can this be? Common sense and contemporary neuroscience
both agree that memory is contained in the brain, so how can a newly grown
brain come complete with memories?

A new born chick is placed in a room with a hawk. It
frantically tries to find cover. It meets a chicken for the very first time and is
completely comfortable. People would call this instinct, and I’m sure it is but how is instinct
passed from one generation to the next? Wouldn’t it have to be
stored in the DNA? And instinct is just a form of memory, so if that form of
memory is stored in the DNA, then why not other forms of memory.

racial memory
noun Psychology .
feelings, patterns of thought, and fragments of experience that have been transmitted from generation to generation in all humans and have deeply influenced the mind and behavior.

Why leave when you can help bring it down? And the easy thing about it is to do what the progressives,RINOS and NEO CONS have enacted in social welfare, insane political correctness and diversity and laws to bring totalitarian rule.

White privilege? In this century? Facts are, we were once in a post racial society until the great divider hijacked the White House. If you think you know everything and have no need to learn more, that means you are in great need of an education.

That would be Yosemite Sam. The libs started on the young by depicting conservatives as gun toting nuts.
