White privilege, like chicken teeth and rocking horse sh!t, doesn't actually exist in reality - it exists in the minds of those folks so butthurt because they lost the fight / race / war / cooking competition / other and have decided to vent their frustration towards the big bad whitey.
A hetrosexual single white male has the most privilege - apparently.
Considering that before the last 50 years, only white males inherited ANYTHING from their fore fathers labor..
No black person was handed down properly, or a business, or a trust fund..
While white male wealth has been in the same old money families for centuries some times..
Obviously the ramifications of that do not just go away in a generation or two..
How many black people will inherit money today?? 5% maybe.. while I bet that number is closer to 40% for whites.. maybe higher..
In a world where cash is king.. that is all that really matters..

But anyhow, there was a fairly big thread about this a couple days ago. sort of done to death. Ultimately, there is inherent benefits in any society where you are the majority, be it white, asian, latino, black, etc. You can call that majority privilege I suppose...but in the west, no person has a legal better standing than another (well, women do in some areas, but thats a different topic)
