Liberals want to make whites -- men especially -- feel guilty for being white, and to feel responsible for centuries of oppressing minorities.
These are real problems which minorities face.
1. Having the police follow you home because they think you are in the wrong neighborhood
2. Wondering if a relationship is going to last because you’re not sure that your significant others parents are going to accept you
3. Worrying about how teachers or other students are going to treat your children in school because they don’t look like everybody else

If we are both competing for a job, the only reason I am going to get that job is because I am more qualified than you. Want to know why? Because I have worked for and will work for everything I have, regardless of my skin color.
At the end of the day, when I have your job; your just going to claim reverse racism.

How do any of you know why you were denied a scholarship? Did they flat out send you a letter saying, "Sorry, you're white. Acceptance denied!" Can you just not accept that maybe, just maybe there was someone better than you. I doubt it. Exactly why you should be feeling guilty, you're spreading lies to further your own agenda. While I don't agree with feeling guilty for anything our ancestors did, I definitely think it's necessary to accept those wrong doings and to make sure they never happen again if you are truly for correcting your races past injustices. White people do have it better! It's fact! Why is that instead of accepting it as truth, you seek to make others feel "sorry" for you guys. No one is going to feel sorry for you guys because the truth is there. Just look at employment in this country and average wages according to race! White's are on top! Geesh people, seriously just accept it. Stop looking for excuses to why you didn't get in to a certain school or get a certain job. You guys sound worse than the black guy who is always claiming racism. I think you guys just don't really like that in a globalized society, the white race can't really oppress others anymore. Try and attack me. I really don't care. I see things for what they are and you guys are crying wolf.

First of all, not all minorities face these problems. Second of all, plenty of people in the majority face all of these problems, although #1 is far more rare, but many minorities don't have this problem.
A problem a great many people of the majority and other minorities face, is making a wrong turn into the wrong neighborhood, and fearing getting killed or rob because of perceived racial injustice taught by left wing views.
There is no such thing as white male privilege. It is a fabrication created by the left to justify discriminatory policies.
Here are some that the majority have to deal with regularly that minorities do not deal with.
1. People assume everything you have and have done is a result of your privileged status.
2. People automatically assuming that your ancestors did horrible things to other people, and are guilty of doing things that no one else has done.
3. Just because of the color of your skin it is assumed that you somehow automatically represent authority.
So, lets go over some more.
I have yet to see anybody come up with a legitimate white male privilege, You listed problems that some minorities have to deal with, none of which are white male privileges.
I see this as an important topic to our current society, and as an active effort to continue to create division among the working class by liberal elitists.
I have never associated white skin with positions of authority. I have also not met any minorities who have; maybe I talk to the wrong ones?
