Exactly, say I moved to a black majority nation my perks of being white would go out the window.
I've experienced it myself in other parts of the world.
And on topic, which seems to be a broad church, I have no malice for any 'royals' I don't know them, I'm just passionately against a constitutional monarchy system of government.

The fact that the british monarchy call their citizens 'subjects' and 'commoners' prove white privelige exists.

I was touched by Meghan Markle's mother. The tears in her eyes, and emotional expressions she made druing the ceremony. Just such beautiful pride for her daughter.
The term they use around the aristocratic dinner table is "o..." Can't remember the spelling

White privilege is nonsense, it's more about money than race or majority, if it was about race then why do black majority cites and towns treat poor black people exactly the same? The same crime, the same abuse, the same poverty, the same corruption and even the same discrimination.
White privilege is a lie created by racists to foment division and conflict, to plant the seeds for a race war, they want to make blacks, liberals, academics and the media turn the white populace against them by putting white people in defensive mode.
Defensiveness creates paranoia, paranoia creates fear, fear creates anger, anger creates hatred and when people keep pushing on about these accusations, eventually it leads to violence. people really need to start thinking about their words more carefully before it goes too far.

I disagree.
I'm glad I was born white, it's definitely made my life easier than non-white mates.

Attention Please:
The Mud Pit is not the place for social issue threads and was never intended for them. This thread would normally be removed entirely, but since it escaped our notice and mud has been flung, it's being closed to preserve others posts.

From this point forward we will simply remove any posts that are off topic for the Mud Pit without warning. Be forewarned and please do not post non-political topics in a political forum.

Mud Pit forum rules.



Mud-Pit Rules and Guidelines

The rules and guidelines are simple, basically just two things to remember in addition to common-sense avoidance of vulgarities and personal threats:

Don't throw mud outside of the political mud pit forum.

If you go into the Political Mud-Pit forum, expect to get dirty.




1) Don't throw mud outside of the political mud pit forums.

If you're wandering about ATS, and find a discussion that throttles your political angst, and really really want to start casting harsh aspersions in the direction of one or more political ideologies:

YOU CAN CREATE A NEW THREAD: Quote the post that inspired your ire, link to the non-mud-pit ATS thread, and start a new thread in the Political Mud-Pit forum, making certain not to call-out or otherwise throw mud at any ATS member in the original thread outside the Mud-Pit.



2) It's bad-form throw mud at someone who's not throwing mud.

Even in the Political Mud-Pit forum, there will probably be someone attempting to make a valid point who does so without rancor, name-calling, or other political mud.

Perhaps the topic and direction of discussion is different enough from other threads on ATS that they felt compelled to get involved.

If you can respond without throwing mud, everyone will think better of you… but there is no requirement to put down the mud when you respond.



3) Everything but vulgarities and threats are "tolerated."

We've come to accept that many feel the "political stakes" are so high, that intense debate is necessary, and very often name-calling, baiting, and activity we've previously classified as "Political Trolling" are simply part of the process. Have at. But don't come running to us if someone throws mud harder than you, or hides rocks in their pile of mud.


And to avoid further confusion; restricted topics such as personal drug use, hacking, etc. are still not allowed in the Mud-Pit. Politics only please.


Revisions for clarity -



Reaffirming the Political Mud Pit Forum Guidelines

The Political Mud Pit was always intended to be a platform for members to hash out their political differences and to contentiously debate tough political issues, unencumbered by the usual constraints of civility and decorum found elsewhere on ATS. See SkepticOverlord's original Political Mud Pit Forum guidelines above.

Specifically:



We've come to accept that many feel the "political stakes" are so high, that intense debate is necessary, and very often name-calling, baiting, and activity we've previously classified as "Political Trolling" are simply part of the process. Have at.



Note that it indicates name-calling, baiting and activity otherwise labeled as political trolling elsewhere on the site. Not generally hateful, bigoted, mean-spirited or gratuitous personal attacks on fellow members. It's also not exempt from the usual forum expectation of remaining on topic.

The Political Mud Pit is not a safe space for trolling for laughs. It's not a place to abuse fellow members. It's not a place to post every inane story you just want to rage about. It's not a place to spam off topic content.

This is simple: The mud pit is not a place where members can personally insult each other. You can rip each other's politics up but you can't get personal just to slag someone you don't like. Additionally, posts must be relevant to the stated thread topic.

Going forward, please be advised that failure to adhere to the stated posting guidelines of this forum will result in staff action against your account, possibly including post-bans and account terminations. Additionally, political trolling outside of the confines of the Political Mud Pit is strictly forbidden and will also be actioned accordingly.
