I could make a similar argument about affirmative action. But I won't because I believe there is a need for the program- though much less of one than it was first implimented.
Race issues are just another divide and conquer technique. Black people are told that the white man keeps them down. White people are told that their tax dollars are paying for people of color to live carefree lives on the public dime. While one could find examples of both of these things - those examples are increasingly rare.
We're all human beings and we all want the same things. We've got a much better shot at getting them if we are a united front and not splintered factions.
hey there Heff,

The answer to that is EITC (Earned income tax credit ) that companies get for hiriing minorities, felons, social assitance recipientd, etc. I suppose it's also part of proving that company is complying with EEOC guidelines as well.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) prohibits discrimination in all its programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, or marital and family status. (Not all prohibited bases apply to all programs.) Persons with disabilities who require alternative means for communication of program information (Braille, large print, audiotape, etc.) should contact USDA's TARGET Center at (202) 720-2600 (voice and TDD).
To file a complaint of discrimination, write USDA, Director, Office of Civil Rights, Room 326-W, Whitten Building, 14th and Independence Avenue, SW, Washington, D.C. 20250-9410 or call (202) 720-5964 (voice and TDD). USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.

I think the main problem with the POV of the OP is that your saying, based off my experiences, all of these things have or could happen to me as well.. That (to you) is a valid point, but leaves a gaping black hole in the facts. Once again, you are talking about your experiences as a white person. You cant claim to have an understanding of other ethinicities struggle without living in their shoes and feeling it. Black people are arrested WAY more often then white people, even tho statistically crimes committed are equal between wht/ltn/blk generally. However, people of color have the most intense accountability for their actions compared to white offenders.
Be more open minded. Just because you dont like the idea of white privilege doesn't mean it isnt a clear reality for many many many people all around the world, not just in the US

Very true!!! My very first girlfriend was a chinese girl. My family thought she was great. But whenever her dad would come around to pick her up she would go. Hi dad this is my friend .... I wasn't even allowed to hug her goodbye in front of her dad. She would push me away. A girl I was making out with 30 minutes earlier. ANyway it turned out that because I was white she had to break up with me because her dad was livid.
My best friend growing up was korean. His mom freaked out when she found out he was dating a hispanic girl. He got revenge anyways on his mom and ended up marring a dutch white girl. His moms still angry. But loves the grandkid whos half white half korean.
The group, called the Former Majority Association for Equality, was formed by Texas State University student Colby Bohannan and others and hopes to provide four $500 scholarships to white men by July (donations are being accepted via the group's website).
Our success in helping Caucasian families put a son through college relies solely upon tax deductible donations through our secure Donate page. The amount of help we can provide these families is determined strictly by the amount of financial support we receive from these tax deductible donations.

Why is the term "Asian privilege" non-existent? After all, the Asian minority has higher test and IQ scores than white people, and they have a higher average income. If the criminal justice system unfairly targets non-whites, then why do Asians have a lower crime rate than white people?
An aspect of this 'white privilege' ideal that I often hear is that blacks have to live with some sort of 'fear' of white people. A white person is far more likely to be a victim of a violent crime at the hands of a black person than vice-versa. This isn't the 60's. A lot has changed in 40 years.edit on 8/7/2012 by Charmed707 because: (no reason given)

that would depend on what you consider "welfare".
the welfare i know (family benefits), has more black single mothers enrolled than white so what exactly is your point ??
oh yeah, since the majority of dead soldiers had families, that could be why more white mothers are involved these days.
so, what is it, now that the numbers are closer, you think this is how it's been forever or what ??
curious, where are your "stats or facts" to support your claim ?
since you offered none ... here's some ...
The percentages of those on welfare by race as of 2011 are listed below in descending order:
The percentages above does not tell the complete story by any means.
To put this in proper perspective one must recognize that blacks make up only 12.6% of of the total population while whites make up 72.4%.
Per capita, the welfare received by blacks is much higher than the welfare received by whites.
and here's more ...
Among the poorest of the poor–single mothers, living below the poverty line with minor children to support 39.7 percent of AFDC clients are Black single mothers and 38.1 percent are White women with children. Food stamp recipients are 37.2 percent Black and 46.2 percent White. Medicaid benefits are paid to 27.5 percent Black recipients compared to 48.5 percent White clients.
now, if you care to discuss facts instead of supposition, i'd be happy to participate.
since you seem to be focused on fabrications, get back to me when you've actually created something.
as for my experience, that was then and this is now.
besides, things like this have 'statute limitations' and time limits to file such a claim and the laws have certainly changed a few times since then.
Social Security is the nation’s largest welfare program, although many Whites prefer to call it a retirement plan. The government writes retirement and disability benefit checks to 35.4 million recipients of whom 88.7 percent are White and 9.6 percent are Black. The reason behind this shocking disparity is perhaps the most lamentable of all: The life expectancy rate for Blacks is six years shorter than that of Whites, meaning Black workers spend years paying into a retirement system only to have White retirees reap the benefits for a longer time.
