Because the term begs for clarity when discussing it with non-Americans.. why are you bothered that your reality is different from Europeans?

But white privilege is not about being biologically predisposed to succeed, it's about being culturally predisposed to succeed based on skin color. And yes, it's very regional which is why I was careful enough to speak only on America.

But on a global scale you can think of the fact that most first world nations are predominately white despite the fact majority of the population isn't. Pointing out the history that caused white privilege doesn't debunk white privilege.

And can you name a place on the globe where white people face as many disadvantages because of their race?

Yes I can. Everywhere that white people are not the majority.

You think the son or daughter of some random white family in Mexico has some societal advantage over all the Mexicans? Like they're going to higher them because they are white?

I'd imagine the same idea would apply in different forms to Europeans. I'd need more information to talk about their reality but it's not a mentality that's specific to Americans, it's specific to every race in every country on Earth. I imagine there's a version of White Privilege that applies to China but it would probably be called Han Privilege. And why fight the terminology when the idea is what is important, especially when the idea itself is being fought simply on the basis of terminology by whites? I don't see you fighting for the idea but also talking about terminology, I see you simply talking about the terminology. This is why it is important to specify "White", because the race in question needs to be confronted.

Do you think they face disadvantages? Like they won't hire them because they are white?

I think a lot of this is based on an assumption, so if you can I would like you to provide a source of information that supports the idea that whites face as much discrimination.

That's fine. I really don't know enough about the culture, but youre probably right. That doesn't really address my point though.

I didn't say they face disadvantages I'm not in a position to make that claim, but I can say with some level of confidence they don't have advantages over the natives just because they are white. I can do some research on stats and get back to you, but I think youre making a pretty foolish argument and being deliberately dense.

Okay, fine.. Uganda than, I mean seriously, being nitpicky to avoid addressing the bigger picture of the argument is pretty boring. Or perhaps Iraq? or Cuba? Take your pick.
