One example of white privilege is that white people are more attractive. Whatever the reason for that may be, societal or whatever, it doesn't matter
for my argument. I heard that in China you can get paid to come to peoples parties just for being a normal-looking white person, as if you were some
sort of b-list celebrity. Just because it's THAT cool to have a white friend.
Yet there is no privilege?
Another example is that your culture is dominant in the world. It literally dominated and dominates other cultures. Of course this doesn't apply
equally to all whites. Americans, British, and other former parts of the Empire benefit hugely from this, because of the English language. Then we
have countries like Germany, France, Spain, Russia, Italy, etc; all have either been huge in history, or they are still significant players next to
America. But even smaller peoples like the Swedes or Icelanders may have had huge impacts on the world in more limited ways. Or Scots, or Czechs or
something. These make up a huge majority of whites. The rest have even less of the white privilege, perhaps.
Please consider that the privilege exists even if it may be earned. If your dad worked super hard to become a wealthy and respected man, do you have
less privilege then than if he just won the lottery? No, you probably have way more privilege. Some people on the left may abuse this idea of
privilege. That doesn't make it non-existent. If you conservatives ignore its existence just to deny liberals any advantage, then you are being just
as intellectually dishonest as any rabid liberal calling for reparations might be.

What's white privilege about that picture? Those people appear to be poor hillbillies.
