Who here in this thread said they don’t believe it? Yes blacks have a higher rate, but when studying correlation and causation you have to
look at other factors.
Correlation and causation of Murder?
You are not defending this, or blaming it on Oppression, are you?
(No, seriously... are you?)
yet you have people in this thread who will take things out of context and make it seem as if blacks are killing up everyone on the
10 times the murder rate per capita sounds a little scary to me.
I could see why someone would have difficulty in purchasing land in an all black area.
Which would cause demand for that land to plummet, which would lower property values...
So, if by "White Privilege" you mean, Economic impoverishment based on Fear of Violence... then I can see your point.
You didn’t list any examples, except if you mean the info in your link.
Yes, that is what I was referring to.
Direct link via skin color and the fact that America is set up to cater to the elites first, white Americans second.
No, this is an illusion.
America is set to cater to Corporations/Banks First, Politicians Second, and the People third.
They don't care about skin color, but it *IS* useful to keep us fighting against each other, so we never rise against them.
White Privilege. That is a VERY concrete answer.
No, it is not.
IT is a shifty, ambiguous way to answer a question, without giving any REAL answers.
War torn nations which are the result of slavery, colonialism, the World Conservation Bank, IMF, and others
Yeah, Im not arguing with you here.... but Living in America *STILL* beats living in Africa.
(Which was my point)
OH, and you also forgot Warlords and Greed.
White people benefit from slavery in the form of institutional deviance and white privilege.
Ok, I heard of "White Privlidge" but never "Institutional Deviance"
From what I can find, this means.... what... cops ganging up on blacks?
Im not sure, if you can give a link to the definition or something, I would be happy to respond, I can't seem to find one.
However, because you deny that white privilege exists and have a warped concept of it
We have not had any conversation about white privilege before, how can you claim to know what my ideas of it are?
You seem to be projecting from your conversations with others in this thread.
In critical race theory, white privilege is a set of advantages that are believed to be enjoyed by white people beyond those commonly
experienced by non-white people in the same social, political, and economic spaces (nation, community, workplace, income, etc.). Theorists
differentiate it from racism or prejudice because, they say, a person who may benefit from white privilege is not necessarily racist or prejudiced and
may be unaware of having any privileges reserved only for whites.
Hmmm... privileges that cannot be seen, or measured, that no one is aware of...
Not really a good case for it's existence, is it?
I could easily call black privilege, that guarantees some jobs to blacks because of affirmative action, or the backing of hate crime laws, or
It's easy to claim that white people are benefiting from racism, ascribing it to a red herring of "White Privilege" that defies explanation or
But it is poor character to claim that White people prosper because they oppress black people.
As if White people don't work hard.
There have ALWAYS been black people of talent, and skill that rise to the top, and become richer, better off, and more respected than their peers.
We have one running the United States right now.
Oprah is the richest women in the world (Unless I am missing an oil sheik heiress or bill gates wife or something)
George Washington Carver.... the man did AMAZING things with Peanuts.
I could go ON AND ON...
It is true, there are not as many prominent Black Americans as there are Prominent White Americans.
That is because MOST of America is White, and NOT EVERYONE becomes prominent, or rich.
Most people just eek out a living.
It's not a "Privilege" its just statistics.
