Do you think if a switch was flipped and racism ceased to exist in America that white people would suddenly lose white privilege? There is a nuance to this that you either dont get or disagree with: whiteness as an inherent privilege vs a society that functions in a way that white people tend to have an advantage over other races.

If you are a white person in a society that tends to give an advantage to white people, then yeah, whiteness is a privilege. A privilege that we call 'white privilege'.

If white privilege truly existed in the black and white way most people describe it then a white man with a criminal record would still have an easier time getting a job over a black man with no criminal record.

That isn't the case though.

Teeheehee.

Thank you professor.

That's cool until you realize that whiteness isn't the only factor that contributes to the advantages white people have in this country. When people use the term "white privilege" it refers to a lot of things that go beyond race, which is why white privilege will still exist if racism magically vanished. Making the conversation and terminology about race detracts from the larger problem. I agreed with Batlord that it does a good job of getting people talking and bringing up the surrounding issues, but it's still a racebaitey term.

Lemme ask you something: Do you think a minority child adopted by a white family has access to white privilege?

Yes, but it's still an issue that is very tied to race in a way and with issues that are different from the privilege of the middle/upper classes over the lower classes or other facets of the larger problem so it's still important to specify the racial aspect. It's race baity largely because people in general get defensive when their position in society that they've seen as normal for their whole life is called into question, not because pointing out the racial issue in the terminoloby is inherently provocative.

It's like Black Lives Matter vs All Lives Matter.

It's weird to see only white people argue about white privilege

How do you know it's only white people? Because you assume everyone on the internet is white? I've certainly seen black people on Youtube argue for white privilege.
