If you go to a place in the United States where there is a very low black population, like southwest Michigan for example, poor white people are given the same treatment as poor urban blacks. The poor people in these areas are stereotyped, disadvantaged, prejudiced against, targeted by police, are corralled into certain neighborhoods, and receive a poor education in them. They are white people who come from "generational poverty". Who are more likely to be involved with teenage pregnancy, welfare, crime, violence, and drugs. Whose job application gets tossed out based on their family name. "White trash". It's absolutely true that many affluent and influential white people are hoarding opportunities for other white people. But those opportunities are not going to just any white people,and certainly not white people who have lived in generational poverty. Thus the generational poverty. There are millions of white people who are being screwed by "rich white guy" system, too.

1. White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty.
2. White people, if you’re inheriting property you intend to sell upon acceptance, give it to a black or brown family. You’re bound to make that money in some other white privileged way.
3. If you are a developer or realty owner of multi-family housing, build a sustainable complex in a black or brown blighted neighborhood and let black and brown people live in it for free.
4. White people, if you can afford to downsize, give up the home you own to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.
5. White people, if any of the people you intend to leave your property to are racists assholes, change the will, and will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.
6. White people, re-budget your monthly so you can donate to black funds for land purchasing.

The author of this clap-trap doesn't seem too unprivileged to me. Here is her LinkedIn Profile Which shows that she has a college degree during which she spent a semester at sea. Surprise, surprise, she works for the Federal Gov't. This may be her Twitter Page

Looking for handouts is not the key to self-sufficiency, IMHO.
This message was lost for some in the hyperbole, but, sometimes, to wake people up, shaking them up is the best method. This piece was effective. The reactions were a mix of confusion and outrage. White readers were polarized and frightened. Many reacted emotionally, instead of trying to figure out what Helm was really saying.
America has no idea what it means to create restorative justice, or to institute reparations. Too many believe that reparations means sending everyone in an oppressed group a check, or that a black family would have the rights to move into your personal home as repayment for historical slavery and systemic racism. Reparations is a debt, not a handout.
It’s very basic. Extend your privilege. Do something. Help correct the past.

John Allan Yarmuth is an American Democratic politician who has been the U.S. Representative for Kentucky's 3rd congressional district since 2007. His district encompasses the vast majority of Louisville Metro.
Chanelle Helm’s piece, “White People…,” was her satirical list of ways white people can help end racism.
Does she expect people will actually send her money? Or include her in their will? Of course not. Her message was not an appeal for charity. Her message wasn’t literal… it was satirical.
Within that satirical message — as with all good satire — was a core of truth. Helm’s comments weren’t about racism in the white nationalist, KKK, violence-against-blacks sense. Her message was one about economics. It was a message about institutional, generational economic racism that plagues America.
