It's not a religious issue, it's not a political identity issue, it's not not a cultural issue, it's not an ethnicity issue it's an issue completely motivated by racial biases. So calling it white privilege is the best way to address this because there are plenty of other majorities in this country who are not affected by the same biases.
No it is motivated by other issues, it's just that the overriding issue is race. The Southern strategy wouldn't work if there wasn't a class issue. It's important to recognize other issues that are tied into race because the race issue has had such a far reaching influence that it's no longer JUST about race, which is why Republicans find ammo to use against blacks that they can paint as not racist. I mean immigration in any form will always be a major influence on a country's politics and slavery is the most bizarre form of immigration any country has ever seen.

Huh?

You're being intentionally obtuse by applying definitions to white privilege that aren't relevant to the concept as a way to challenge the concept. That sounds like being nitpicky instead of looking at the big picture to me.

Majority of this country is Christian, for one. While yes, that does often offer some sort of bias towards Christians there really isn't nearly as big of a bias for them as there is towards white people.

No, I'm not.

Short sentences are fun.

Well, I see and understand and to a degree agree with your point, but we're talking about prejudice here, and in effect that means we're talking about race, so you need to acknowledge the racial issue absolutely 100%.

Youre comparing apples and oranges. Christians have christian privilege over every other religion in this country.

You can't compare the majority privileges of two different things. Whatever majority thing you are associated with in a society will give you a privilege within whatever connections that thing has in society.

I'd say calling the term 'white privilege' race baiting is you arguing it. Wanting to re-frame it as 'majority privilege' is tip toeing around addressing race and implies that you don't think race should be evoked.

I don't think race should be evoked. I think race should be one of MANY things evoked, because just being white is not the only reason that white people have "white privilege" in America. Pretty sure Batlord just finished explaining that to you.

Like I said before, majority privilege + tribalism + a whole lotta history and nuance..
