All I see you arguing is the terminology but if you agree over the general racial aspect then you should be arguing it in the same way you might argue over man made global warming because both are important.

Idc about that. I was ranting about the terminology. Who exactly am I supposed to be arguing with? We all agree it exists, nothing left to argue about but the terminology.

Like I said before, majority privilege + tribalism + a whole lotta history and nuance..
You literally just contradicted yourself, more so poorly worded that statement.

What's being ignored is that lower class white people aren't facing the same discrimination as lower class black people. They are not being unfairly judged based on race, they are not being targeted by police like black people, they are not being as harshly judged over crimes as black people, etc. So while classism is a problem in this country that needs to be addressed, it's not as strong as the racial bias.

Edit: and majority of the population isn't upper class so that defeats your 'majority privilege' argument as well.

I think you're just reading what you want at this point. Good talk.

Which one?

Edit: What exact bit of writing do you think I'm not addressing or that I'm ignoring?

I think the point is that DWV doesn't disagree with white privilege, he disagrees with the term. You're all just arguing with a strawman like morons. Way to not make our side look like triggered ***gots.
