White privilege is being able to be judged on an individual basis, instead of as a whole race.

White privilege is not having your language and culture viewed as “special interests”.

White privilege is Paul Holmes being able to say of UN Secretary-General Kofi Anan “we’re not going to be told what to do by a cheeky darkie” while ignoring the clear implication the role of non-whites is not to “tell” non-whites what to do.

White privilege is Paul Henry asking “when are we going to have a Governor General who looks more like a New Zealander” because naturalized non-whites do not fit the template of what a “real” Kiwi looks like.

White privilege is being able to classify Maori land as “customary” because only white can truly “possess”.

White privilege is being able to drink yourself to death as a 16 year old white middle class boy, and not have it reflect on your entire race.

White privilege is being able to define non-whites by the degree of “blood”.

White privilege is being able to be ignorant of the Treaty of Waitangi, because that’s “ancient history” all the while supporting more recent acts of treaty violation like the 2004 Foreshore and Seabed Act which extinguished all Maori customary title while leaving private property intact.

White privilege is white people complaining about Maori having “special rights” while ignoring the fact that European colonization has led to the setting up of institutions and social structures that primarily reflect the interests of white people.

White privilege is non-white Asian immigrants changing their names and surnames to European (i.e.“Kiwi”) because potential employers were refusing to read CV’s with Asian names on them.

White privilege is labeling a welcome sign on the Great North Road as “controversial” because of the “prominence” of the Maori welcome in Te Reo on top suggesting that the unspoken hierarchy of whiteness is not being followed.

Many change their names because it"s something like Xinghochamilinggaho.
In other words impossible for the locals ( English speaking ) to pronounce. You'll find most of these Asians who change their name are Chinese .I have yet to meet one Japanese who has.The reason being is Japanese names are easy to get right. Anyway why should any employer highera foreigner when a local can do the job ? Sadly many do.

White privilege is knowing that police will come to your aid, whereas non-whites have their calls ignored.
