Sounds about right to the liberals. Just not to the rest of us.

I am white and have yet to see what privilege it has brought me. I still have been followed by theft prevention in stores, offered housing from rental agencies that is not in the best shape when I can easily afford better, etc. Yep, no 'white privilege' here!

I guess my privilege is paying for theirs.

I am a white male 64 years old. My white privilege consisted of being discriminated against my whole life because I was not a minority. Whenever I applied to get a decent job. I was always told we have to hire minorities first. Also I worked in manufacturing and whenever promotions came up the plant managers always had to give the promotion to minorities. I remember one time a promotion to foreman was open. This white guy knew everything and was there from the beginning and should have gotten the job. But instead it was given to a minority person that couldn't do the job. So after six months they demoted the guy. What do you think happened then. Yep they passed over the white guy that deserved the promotion again and gave to another minority guy. So that white privilege is a bunch of bull created by the liberals to appease the minorities.

White privilege is having parents that cared about your future. It is having parents that understand how the current system views, judges, rewards and punishes people. It is having parents that teach this to their children along with teaching the values of hard work, education and respect. This plays out over generations. You have to think long term and you have to be willing to sacrifice for your children's future while also looking out for your own.

There is a reason that only a small percentage of people in this country go on to be truly great. Because even after all of this being passed down to your offspring there is still a great amount of timing and being able to recognize your opportunities when they present themselves. Then having the work ethic and education to chase that opportunity.

For each of the above traits that your parents did not teach you, you fall behind. If you have enough of them missing your failure is all but ensured. Every person that brings up white privilege as a reason for someone elses success and their failures is crying sour grapes. They are attempting to lower the bar to their level so they can fell like they now have a fair shot. This is of course wrong. DONT LET IT HAPPEN.

White privelage is just another excuse for the short comings of people that have yet to make the effort to assimilate to the current and prevailing culture. There answer is to change the culture. Again, DONT LET IT HAPPEN!!!

White privilege is just a liberal talking point, there is no white privilege. It's used as an excuse for others making bad choices in their life and wanting a hand out.

Many white Americans don't have ancestors that were involved with slaves. Less than 5% of Americans in the 1860's and before had slaves. Not hardly close.

You are absolutely correct. I am a little bit younger than you but I saw this all my life.
