So you don't think whites not facing the same discrimination that they put onto other races where they are the majority when they are a minority is not a form of privilege in it's self?

I mentioned this in my post by I guess I got ninja'd. Preference for the local majority is going to exist everywhere, but we're crackers in the West and we have no influence on the Middle East or Far East or Africa, so we talk about our own area that we can influence in terms we can understand, hence, White Privilege. It is important to use "White" with privilege because we are talking about an area of the world where whites have privilege.

^Yeah, that's fine until you start having a discussion with people not from the US. The term white privilege in a global discussion or forum with people from quite a few different places in the world is pretty silly.

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.
Yeah I thought I made it clear that I'm not denying the idea.. It's the terminology I don't like, which is all I've said.

No. What the hell kind of argument is that.. If I move from a bad neighborhood to one where everyone is chill as **** and I don't even need to lock my doors does that mean I have some sort of privilege in the new happy place? or are the people just better human beings?

We're not talking to Chinese people. We're talking to white or Western people. If you can point out a Chinese or Ugandan person in this discussion to me then we can have words and those words will be "Well we're really not talking to you, but we can figure out a phrase in a moment."

But the fact that I carefully made a point to clarify "in america" with my points over rides your nit picking argument on the terminology.

By definition that is a privilege.
