So in saying that, because I don't see it ever changing without alien contact (then we all become Earthlings), I feel the only thing sane is understanding and acceptance. Embrace the differences and celebrate where we meet. Everyone 100% valid until proven otherwise - which usually happens because you become an a$$ clown.

This is just the way it should be.
The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that white firefighters in New Haven were subjected to race discrimination when the city threw out a promotional examination on which they had done well and black firefighters poorly.
“The city rejected the test results solely because the higher scoring candidates were white,”

I take "white priviledge" to mean that whites think they legally deserve more rights than others, for example...they can marry, but gays cannot.
or they can strut cake bakery row and choose whatever baker they want, but gays can only go to the few that serve gays.
I have a difficult time believing that your white "mid-low class" experience is so different from my poor working class (A.K.A. Poor White Trash) experience, but well maybe so. Carry on with your virtue signaling though.
Yes...and they are not, not because of some contrived term 'white privilege' (that is an utterly meaningless phrase), but because of prejudice.

I have never been admitted entry to educational institutions based on anything other than the merit of my own mind and work ethic.
I have never been given work preference based on the color of my skin.
I have never received welfare or free healthcare.
I have never complained of inequality or prejudice despite living in abject poverty for many years but instead taught myself skills.
