perhaps start up money is a euphemism, for things like . . . a relatively stable family environment, respect for literacy, some support in academic achievement and general socialization?

Easier to just say "start up money".
Sad truth

OK, you ride the short bus. Let me try again:

Now read that 3 times until it sinks in.


How about since, I don't know, 1900s?

And let's narrow down the region to, I don't know, the United States?

Well, in the last 100 years whites have been oppressed. Aff Action. Tax redistribution of wealth by the Trillions. Food Stamps. Crime. Don't need to get it down to region. It's national.

Or, perhaps you can tell me a region controlled by black politicians in the last 100 years that is now prospering. Detroit? Chicago? Compton?

Wealthy black people are tax exempt? Poor white people are not eligible for food stamps? Crime is only perpetrated by blacks?

Nice try though.

This is the only that a discussion around privilege should contain. It is very relevant and many people can't fathom, especially in a small rural community, how the hit the fricking jackpot by being white, and born in america. Understanding how lucky you are is a good thing, and gives good perspective.


And, you know that black people in the US, especially in an urban setting, can't fathom (as opposed to being born in sub-Saharan Africa, for example), how they hit the fricking jackpot by being born in the United States, instead of a third world shithole in Eastern Europe, SE Asia (although S. Korea wouldn't be terrible right now), or the aforementioned African countries.

(See how that works, Bud? Perceived relative deprivation is a tool the powers-that-be use, rather than a legitimate gripe.)

Pathetic. You don't know what percentage or ratio mean. Very very sad.

Why does the idea that it is a huge advantage to be born white make white people so angry?

One would think that being accused of white privilege is a terrible burden to white people.

Doesn't bother me. I'm rather glad that I am white (and a WASP at that). Louis C.K. puts it pretty succinctly.

for a few reasons

1. excluding genetic and societal outliers, we are all born with similar economic peaks. it's mostly what we do with it

2. telling a group of people that they have racial disadvantages that prevent them from advancing economically is fricked up

3. that line of thinking creates white guilt for white people who have never discriminated against a minority. that's wrong

there are all sorts of fricked up digressions from this insane point, and none of them are good

when it creates so much white guilt for innocent people that they create a bull shite myth about their race, the burden is shown

I think the "anger" is being generated because it is being taught in a public schools. Why is that part of the curriculum?

There is also an advantage to being born tall, handsome, rich, intelligent, in a civil society, to functional parents, not when there is a world war in 17 to 30 years in your future, etc.

Some things are common sense, not political issues.

I' m well aware what they mean, but thats irrelevant. If you are arguing those things you listed are forms of white oppression, then why are there plenty of blacks who are similarly "oppressed" by said measure, and at the same time many whites "benefitting?"

And who is doing the oppresion in the examples you listed?

I suppose white people are born with an advantage. They're born into a culture that generally values education, family, and responsibility. The answer to that lies within the black community though, not outside of it.

Presumably you consider yourself an average poster.

The problem with teaching "white privilege" is it's a defeatist curriculum for blacks.

Meh.

I think you're confusing correlation and causation.
