And you sir buy into it and wear that crap like a merit badge.

Sure thing.
But white privilege is as plain as the nose on your face. And denial of the fact defines you.


Exactly. Part of the definition of "white privilege" is that if somebody denies it, it "proves" they're racist.

Gold star for you!

I'm not at all trying to suggest there's not a societal divide in the U.S.



I just think the term "White Privilege" is something that people throw around a lot without knowing what it means for society. Using the term itself implies that minorities are somehow less privileged when it comes to society. While this is true is SOME areas, it's largely a term that exists because the people who profit from this social divide are perpetuating the cycle of mistrust, hate, dependence, and greed.





Or it is real as any stats can prove,like I said earlier,"White Privilege " are a set of assumptions it is not dependent on wealth,education,dress and I could add politics,some of these assumptions are just annoying others can cripple you financially but at the extreme can be deadly .

Here is the thing and I am going to assume you self I.D as 'White" you like the rest of us struggle through life trying to make better ,you may win or lose based solely off your talent and energy,minorities especially Black folks have that extra external baggage,it could be a last name on a job APP,or that photo you sent out with your APP.



Black Woman Pretends To Be White, Job Offers Skyrocket

.


financialjuneteenth.com...



Now some would say why AAs have to go to the "WHITE MAN" to get a job why not start your own business and hire your "OWN" people, well I am not opposed that but then taken to extremes Why not have your own all black police force,your own mayors,your own state ..ahem D.C??


Are we willing to give up on this so-called melting pot/salad bowl and live separate lives,as far as I recall separate but equal didn't workout too well,so what's the solution break-up the country based off ethnic units each with it's own president and foreign policy.


Well said. . .

It amazes me that closet racists think everyone doesnt know they are racist scum of the earth that they are.

There really is that advantage to being white...and male...and heterosexual...and Christian in the us. You don't realize that??? Really??



There's also an advantage of getting up early and working hard, getting an education, and starting a business.

Can you help me understand, of the variables that affect a person's success, what weighting you give to skin color?

Implying that blacks are less successful because of their skin color seems racist to me.

I'm racist, now what? I'm not sorry anything I ever done in this life. I don't use race as a crutch. It could be worse. I could be a murderer or a thief. You wouldn't care about any of that though. You feed off the hate. You get off on making people feel bad for something they have no control over. Who's the asshole now?


You would be for claiming to be a racist, as well as a murderer or a thief. I doubt your any of those in truth.

But to the true racists all they see is skin color.

But if he looked like that, he would be even more recognizable as a mulatto or biracial individual, whereby more African looking blacks will ignorantly say, he has more privilege, or he is light skinned, just goes to show you, how racism transcends even within racial groups, I mean you look at the situation with Iraq, the Kurds, us they look similar but there was great divide.

What creates racism and privilege, since you brought this up, and like I said, people will discriminate within their own ethnic groups as well... it is a very bad human characteristic, but then you can think, beauty compared to what is considered ugly or not so pleasing to the eye...but isn't that in they eye of the beholder ?...hmmmm

True but just look at the doll experiment posted earlier, a premium is set on whiteness even within AA communities back in the day but post slavery era there used to be AA social clubs had the brown bag test,where if your skin was darker than the paper bag you were excluded,in other words they took some of those vile lessons and use it in their own communities that more than anything else for me is the greater tragedy.

i believe there is a "wealth privilege"

and it doesn't care what your ethnicity is or your political affiliation, or religious beliefs are.

i guess it can also be called "green privilege"

Yeah, but come on, this is mainly the situation with any Ethnic group. I buy Smokes from a Hindu guy on the corner, I work on computer at home and I sometimes ask if I see a sign for a few hrs out of the house more to socialize than anything and he said no, 2 weeks later there are 2 Hindu guys working for him, a Pizzaria is going to preference an Italian guy if Italian owned, anyone is going to preference Female over Male for certain positions like Host/ess for example... I mean sheesh, you know what is here too.... SEXISM, look lets be honest every study ever done shows a preference in males and females when it comes inter ethnic sexual choices and Black Women don't rank as high on the list with White Males, I bet an Asian girl would get just as many or a Latina girl because... guys are pigs lol

We can bring this right back to japan, when I leave, i'll be teaching English lol, i'd be damn lucky to score a job in my chosen profession, I know that, i'm not going to scream Japanese priv... because that's silly. Preference and hate aren't mutual, the only actual action we can take is deal with the realities... I'm hitting my 40's, Eff those ageists right? No... There is nothing I can do but try harder be better, I dont care who you are if you do GREAT people will notice... So should we now define "white privilege" as having the demographic in our favor? Because that's all i'm seeing, of course Whites usually would prefer an office that mirrors their culture... So do a lot of Black people they are just a way smaller demographic

Reality check... there are A LOT of effed up reasons people don't get Jobs...Fat, Old, Young, Not enough experience, Not of the culture of the owners preference, Not of the Race, Sexy by perception wins out over brains almost every time particularly in regards to females, Bad Credit,Too much experience, Live too far away, Being single, Being married,Having kids, Owing child support, Religion, Nationality,Too short, Someone didn't like the sound of your voice, They think you have a stupid name, I can go on.... Who you know and who you blow is always going to be a part of life, sometimes sob's just don't like the way you breathe

This isn't news or worthy of a national debate and it's not blatantly racism, nor should a label be created for a race because by numbers they have an advantage, the reality that's dwindling and NOT in favor of AA's because AA numbers are slightly decreasing while Whites are barely gaining and Latinos and Asians are surging and Caucasians are going to find a similar situation as Chinese and other Asian owned Businesses dominate the landscape in the future, they are no1 in opening businesses, no 1 per capita in avg income, no 1 in degree completion and starting to kick Caucasian booty in business, and it's an International world... and America is the only basically Caucasian nation in the top 3 and might not be there much longer.... India as a starter will inevitably hand it to us as well...

Dealing with reality... okay, the truth is we share a Planet of States, not dissimilar to the United States as a whole, China surpasses us (while some total crackers do this I find it obscene) "THEY TOOK ARE JAWBS" No they didn't... being fair just as harsh on them as anyone else... they didn't take your jobs, there are more of them, they work harder and their social behavior is more stable the end, fix your bs and compete, No Chinese privilege nonsense. Do the Chinese get better hotel deals yes...they act nicer on vacation than Americans do, all sorts of special offers displayed in China damn good tourists, we...we're a bunch of jerks lol

I will always resist this term because it's a complaint not a reality, it exists for us too now, most people don't realize that but hardly anyone goes after American workers, Americans Black or White tend to live in a Bubble... a Bubble, our jobs are hoping something finds us within 5-7 miles for 97% of people

As a member of a race/culture...whatever, of people who on an American scale represent maybe 3% of people, I can tell anyone how we beat the "white privilege" despite coming equipped on Monster .com with last name like Lebowitz and and Dorksky that stand out like a sore thumb among the Wasps... We kicked their effen arses in business that's how and yes we stuck together and used nepotism went to school worked like animals and created a culture of success. The numbers don't have to matter... here come the 5% Asians and growing strong, giving us Jews a major run for top position in wealth with literally unlimited numbers on the way...

If you want to use terms like white privilege or whites want to back that crap up.... go right ahead, yall can sit on that Bubba couch together drinking old yeller and crying about the Asian privilege together in 50 years... I think it's a bag of poor me and I have no intention other than to do what the Japanese did with us, take what works from them, discard what doesn't and yup...hire the hella out of family so my kids and their kids are part of the solution not the problem JUST LIKE ANYONE SUCCESSFUL DOES. It's not racist to preference family, it's not racist to preference culture, it''s not racist to preference your race... unless your a company with over X employees a national or even State level employer that's your home, your lively hood, where your family works what pays off your house... people will always do whatever the heck they want with it no laws or other nonsense will change that

And i'm sorry but... a big part of the problem doesn't lie within White privilege, a simple statement of numbers and nepotism, It lies within the AA community (let that second A for America be very specific btw) as example, my people are ruthless on the subject of opening business and hiring other jews... (these freakin guys don't even want you buying other peoples food lol, "is it kosher" translation: did you give your money to another Jew) The organizations are there to protest but protests come out like giant whines...

Spider, African Americans have to invest in Africa to develop external wealth just like Europeans have ties to Europe and Asians have ties to Asia, they have to practice a refusal to tolerate nonsense in the home from kids, if I got shot by a cop after robbing a liqour store the only thing my ma would have said on the news is... "he's a Shmuck" African Americans need to Insist on schooling and not just rise up in sports but outclass in Academics, Understand YES running your own business is the only darn way your going to build wealth, working for somebody just pays the bills and those Good Black men and Women who did this need to Mentor and Nepotize until their faces bleed....

Why? because that's what everyone else does not just white people, I can't put this in any other class of feeling or regard than I do white people who complain about Mexicans, you waited to watch game of Thrones and Pepe took your night job picking up crap from behind the super market huh? poor dummy... It's turning inward not outward that fixes it. People have broken this, fresh of the Boat time and again in this country and i'll say a little secret plenty of Caucasian Americans are more racist to Asians for no damn reason at all than Blacks and they are still kicking our rear ends in economically... Inward cultural change not equally as racist labeling is the only answer.

We're tribal. Go outside and find some cliques. You see the races sticking to themselves? Want to know why they are? It's nature. There's 350 million people here in the US. How many are gay? Probably more than interracial couples. It's a small minority in both cases. People can do what they want until they get me involved by demonizing my color. Did you think I was just going to sit here while everyone is saying whites suck? You're going to call me a racist whatever I do, I might as well own it. You know the less level headed people are going to get upset soon, right? When they do, you already know what side I'm taking. Call it self preservation. I think you better have a talk with the innovator of white privilege and guilt.

Don't shoot the messenger. He shoots back.

I'll preserve my race. I hope you get real mad about it also. I think you are frustrated that you can't breed out the white race. I'll buy a case of viagra at 60. Pump those little suckers out until I die. I don't hate you as much as I like to preserve my heritage. You won't even be a second thought. Call me what you want now. Tell me how you hate me.

Here is some more love which is the answer to all racism!
Dude WTF are you talking about, your the only one who has claimed your a racist.
Racists are indeed the scum of the earth no matter how you spin the wheel it always lands on racists are scum in every section.

Now as to your claim that being racist is nature I say heaping pile of BS.
I hope you dont have kids, cause if you do you may be in for a rude awakening lolz.

BTW keep your racism off ATS or be flagged tot he mods as racism is against T&C of ATS.
Ill go ahead and flag you to them just to be on the safe side.

Anyone else want to claim to be racist?
Ill dont mind flagging you too, thats what happens to racists they get shunned from reality because they dont deserve the right to be part of any community on the face of the earth. . . . . .

Because racists are bottom feeding scum.
