I think a lot of people take privilege the wrong way, and think when people say privilege that they're suggesting white people are all living a great and easy life, but that's a misunderstanding of the word.
What white privilege means is that white people have it slightly easier than other people. If it was called "minority disadvantage" people would easily accept it, but they get thrown off by privilege because they think "well I'm not privileged, nobody gave me sh/t"
All that needs asking is does the average white person have it easier than the average black person, the answer is yes.

No one has said that, I certainly haven't.
It exists. However, is it like it once was? Not even remotely.
Any racism/bias at all is too much. But it's getting better with every passing generation, and anyone who deny's this is blind to history.
