No it’s a ridiculous example of mostly American blacks whining about their circumstances and blaming everyone except themselves for them

The clear and simple reason for Black Plight is that they cannot compete successfully in any society in which Blacks represent the minority.

As well as whites, Asians also out class Blacks in every discipline necessary to achieve success and prosperity.

In a society consisting of Asians/Orientals, Blacks and Whites the Blacks will, as nature intended, be at the bottom of the pecking order.

Instead of recognizing and addressing their own shortcomings Blacks have invented terms and slogans which they believe, or pretend to believe, to be the cause their inability to keep up with the rest of the herd.

These shortcomings include;-

Laziness,

A lack of the self discipline and mental stamina necessary to apply themselves to the rigorous procedures of formal education.

A predisposition to violent crime.

A self-destroying self-pitying attitude that the misguided white bleeding heart brigade help them to believe is true, which it most certainly is not.

The Blacks find solace in inventing and bellowing such labels and slogans as racists, Nazis,, white privilege, white supremacists and racial discrimination.

Blacks will come up with an array of songs, phrases to allay their wholly justified feelings of self-doubt instead of accepting their failing and engaging in a programme of rehabilitation.

When in Rome do as the Romans do.

If Blacks want to prosper in non Black societies, be they in Russia, Japan, India,Pakistan France or China they will have to learn to adopt the ways of their host nation.

Yes indeed and the pathetic thing is the constant whining as in it’s not their fault but societies fault as in the system is loaded against them , what’s lamentable is the raised skirts and shrieking cry of “ you’re a racist “ by a sizable amount of life’s losers in an attempt to avoid facing the truth as in they are to blame for their circumstances and no one else

What’s absurd is American blacks pride in associating themselves with music that screeches their hatred of whites , praises cop killers and devalues women to the level of beasts and yet the whites are the racists , imagine white rappers praising the killing of black cops and racially slurring blacks , there would be a public outcry from the bleeding heart brigade yet not a word uttered at the reverse

I agree, but unfortunately such is the arrested mentality of the Black Man.

Their, oh poor us syndrome, reinforced by the misplaced support of the sanctimonious loony left has them believing that their racial weaknesses and congenital character deficiencies are the fault of whites.

They'll still be crying and screaming about the big bad whites in a 1000 years from now.

There is no such thing as white privilege. I think that all people share equal and most of the same rights. White skin privilege is not something that white people necessarily do, create or enjoy on purpose. Unlike the more overt individual and institutional manifestations of racism described above, white skin privilege is a transparent preference for whiteness that saturates our society. White skin privilege serves several functions. First, it provides white people with “perks” that we do not earn and that people of color do not enjoy. Second, it creates real advantages for us. White people are immune to a lot of challenges. Finally, white privilege shapes the world in which we live — the way that we navigate and interact with one another and with the world.

White Privilege: The Perks

White people receive all kinds of perks as a function of their skin privilege.

Consider the following:

When I cut my finger and go to my school or office’s first aid kit, the flesh-colored band-aid generally matches my skin tone.

When I stay in a hotel, the complimentary shampoo generally works with the texture of my hair.

When I run to the store to buy pantyhose at the last minute, the ‘nude’ color generally appears nude on my legs.

When I buy hair care products in a grocery store or drug store, my shampoos and conditioners are in the aisle and section labeled ‘hair care’ and not in a separate section for ‘ethnic products.’

I can purchase travel size bottles of my hair care products at most grocery or drug stores.

My father, who has worked in economic development for 30 years, would explain away these examples of white privilege as simple functions of supply and demand economics. White people still constitute the numerical majority in this country, so it makes sense, for example, that bandaid companies would manufacture “flesh-tone” bandages for white people.

Even if I concede to his argument (and ignore the “buying power” of communities of color), it still does not change the impact of these white privileges. As a white person, I get certain perks that people of color do not; I get the bandages and the pantyhose and the shampoo at the hotel that works with my hair. And in a new grocery store, I will not have to scan the aisles for my hair care products. They will be in the section called “hair care.” This is how I experience the world.

On Racism

Racism is a doctrine or teaching, without scientific support, that does three things. First, it claims to find racial differences in things like character and intelligence. Second, racism asserts the superiority of one race over another or others. Finally, it seeks to maintain that dominance through a complex system of beliefs, behaviors, use of language and policies. Racism ranges from the individual to the institutional level and reflects and enforces a pervasive view, in white dominated U.S. culture that people of color are inferior to whites.

Racist beliefs include things like “White people are smarter than people of color,” or “White people make better teachers.” Racism can manifest itself in terms of individual behavior through hate crimes, or in institutional behavior through employment discrimination. Racism might manifest in individual language through the use of slurs, or in institutional policy through a school’s selection of Eurocentric textbooks.

Related to these relatively obvious manifestations of racism is a subtle system that also contributes to the maintenance of the racial status quo. That subtle system is white skin privilege.

Some may look at this and thinking that I am choosing sides or whatever but to be fair I am not I'm just justifying what the whites look at it as, as the world hands it to us.

This only applies to certain countries where white people are the majority of the population. I strongly agree that everyone should have equal rights, regardless of the color of their skin.

In most countries, I wouldn't say so, but of course racism still exists. The problem isn't that white people have extra privileges, it's that a lot for the black population in the US are living in poverty. This isn't because the government is acting against them. And since poverty usually means lack of education, then it would be harder to get high-paying jobs.

White privelege is a myth. Just like saying all black ppl are thugs

Oprah Winfrey looks like she has white privilege, and she's black. How did that happen?

Side: No, everyone has equal rights

First I wanna say that just because a race is not as intelligent is NO excuse for ENSLAVING them. But, it’s a scientific researched fact that whites and Asians significantly out perform Africans in intelligence and creative problem solving. And I admit black had a disadvantage a century ago. But right now they have equal(maybe preferential) access to education and jobs. Stop the pity party. Get a minority’s scholarship and bring yourself up!!

Side: No, everyone has equal rights

I believe the white privilege/white supremacy narrative is a concoction of the Left and their demagogues designed to curry favor and votes from Blacks. If you're a victim, it's not your fault and therefore don't have to take responsibility and put forth an effort to change your lot in life. This is exactly where the Democratic party wants them, dependent- a victim for life and ripe for the pickings. It's not your fault, vote for us and we'll fix it!

Firstly it must be noted that White Privilege doesn't exist in countries such as South Africa, Zimbabwe or indeed any of the Black African States.

The title, White Privilege is a term invented by the subclasses in order to instill a feeling of guilt in whites for being superior and to try to change the natural order of things.

Their strategy is to try to browbeat/embarrass whites into extending blacks greater entitlements than they merit or have earned'

Just contemplate for a few seconds on the fact that whites have invented or discovered almost everything which goes towards the advancement and welfare of mankind.

From electricity to the light bulb, from television to the computer and from penicillin to modern surgical operating techniques, white's innovation and brainpower have made them the architects of the world in which we live.

It is not a coincidence that the black's contribution to the betterment of mankind is negligible and pales into insignificance when set beside the achievements of whites.

They attempt to attribute their failure to succeed in a white man's world by citing racism, and now White Privilege.

Please consider this simple little exemplum which I trust will illustrate what I mean;-

Ten people are marooned on a remote island.

Four are white and six are black.

Among them the four whites devise a plan to build a vessel which could return them to civilization.

The combined skills of the four whites enable them to design and construct a sturdy seaworthy boat capable of the long voyage necessary to bring them home.

Unfortunately the island's sparse resources only enabled them to build a craft large enough to accommodate four people, so when they break this news the six black's begin to bellow, racism, White Privilege and then try to unsuccessfully acquire the boat by violence.

The four clever whites who preempted, and made provision for the black's predictable congenital violence, sail to safety while the blacks are unable to survive on the island's meagre and dwindling natural resources.

The demise of the blacks is accelerated by them knocking seven bells out of each other instead of trying to conceive an escape plan of their own.

Take a classroom full of students. Have them all crumple up a piece of paper. Put a garbage can in front of the room. Have the students toss their piece of paper into the garbage can from their seat. Some up front will miss. Some at the back will make it. The kids up front will, however, have a statistically better chance at making it than the kids at the back. The kids at the front of the class represent white privilege. ;)

Dermot, if you believe blacks are privileged, then how do you explain the fact that poverty affects blacks to a much greater extent than whites in the United States?

If you believe that blacks have increased privilege you must therefore believe their increased poverty level is the result of some kind of genetic defect (laziness etc..), which once again proves that you are a racist.

While the poverty rate for the population as a whole is 12.7% the rate varies greatly by race. Blacks have the highest poverty rate at 22.0% and Non-Hispanic whites the lowest at 8.8%.

This isn’t really how life works. You’ve defined one narrow parameter by which you measure success (making a basket) and imposed that value on everyone in the class. But just as people have different positions in life, they also have different aspirations. If your goal is to be served at a KKK fundraiser dinner, then I guess being white will advance you to that end, but good luck at the Nation of Islam banquet. If you want to be a sailor, being landlocked will disadvantage you. If you want to have a successful and meaningful life, your race has nothing to do with it.

Imposing ones goals onto everyone else and then claiming that disparate outcomes can only be the result of disparate starting points is a tool employed to justify racist quotas among other injustices.

In the 1890s, sociologist W.E.B. Du Bois noticed something disturbing about how Americans viewed the plight of blacks in Philadelphia who had suffered through unsanitary living conditions, high rates of consumption and back-breaking labor.

"The most difficult social problem in the matter of Negro health is the peculiar attitude of the nation toward the well-being of the race," he wrote. "There have, for instance, been few other cases in the history of civilized peoples where human suffering has been viewed with such peculiar indifference."
