Zach ill define their meaning for you. If you ever speak of known facts that are mean towards blacks ,then you be racist. Truth doesn't mean anything.

True.
That's what PC is all about. And it dove tails into the gun debate. Truth, by statistics indicates that gun restrictions = more gun crime. More access to guns = less gun crime. But leftists don't care about stats. It's all for show.

So you dismiss a gross generalization that counters your gross generalization?

Quote the gross generalization I made.

I'll wait as you look and can't find anything (or, more likely, ignore this post to save face)

Makes AT LEAST as much sense as arguing blacks are oppressed by whites when whites are just as susceptible as being born in a poor city with no prospects. In an environment which has proven toxic for family values which would normally cultivate a responsible adult with healthy work ethic. What happened to their white privilege?

I agree, and I never made that argument. Quote my post if you believe I did.

I was simply reacting to a post by someone who insinuated that there was never a time when blacks were oppressed by a white majority. Surely you don't believe that, correct?

How can you not believe in white privilege? I mean, you are the same person who argued that blacks, due to some genetic factors out of their control, are born with a lower intellectual capacity than their white counterparts, correct? Therefore, the mere fact one is born white gives them a cognitive advantage or "privilege" that blacks cannot obtain. Right?

According to Zach, by being white, you were born cognitively superior to blacks. Its genetic, he says.

So nothing you needed to be made aware about, apparently, just be happy you were born with less melanin production.

Ahh...so there really isn't any privilege I am missing here. This ole boys club don't exist and is a myth.

This is why I said quote the gross generalization I made.

In the current day, absolutely "white privilege" is a generalization. But historically speaking, to deny its existence is naive at best.

Which is why, in the first reply to the OP, I stated I do not believe "white privilege" should be a part of middle/high school education. In college, when classes are far more specialized and students are (hopefully) mature enough to understand the concept of "white privilege" and put it in its proper historical context, I have no problem with it being presented (in fact, I did take a couple classes where it was discussed at some length during my undergrad years, and I found it quite thought-provoking)

Unless you view a heightened intellectual capacity and potential--determined by genetics and not one's own actions--as a "privilege," I guess not.

I love how when this "Whitie got a silver spoon in his mouth" bull shite comes up, none of the high browed ever point to the Appalachian whites, or poor whites throughout this country to find a poster child for their demonization of whites in this country.

Still a gross generalization,

not really, for most being Irish in America in the first half of the 19th century or Sicilian (the replacement workers for freedmen in the Sugar fields)in the second half of the 19th both of which fled starvation, wasn't particularly better than being a Black slave or free, the Irish got the dangerous jobs because slaves were too valuable; the ships bringing French "settlers" to Louisiana in the 18th century had higher attrition rates than those of the Slave ships, the privilege of being white was very narrow and has expanded as we have become a nation of plenty, but the pleasure of being Black has also expanded with the welfare state


One could play this privilege game endlessly, were the northern micks that got off the boats to be drafted into the union Army more privileged to fight for Negro freedom and equlity than the slaves that saw no combat?

Impossible to take you serious when it comes to racial matters. If you can't even acknowledge that there was a long stretch of time in this country when the simple act of being born white gave one significant advantages in many areas of life when compared to blacks, you're hopeless.

Was this 100% true 100% of the time (aka, being born white meant you will definitely have a slam-dunk, awesome life)? Nope.

Is this a "gross generalization?" Also, no.

Actually, if you had even a simple understanding of human history in the US and the world, you would understand that very few people of any race were born to privilege. Until rather recently in human history there were no sigificant groups of people born to privilege.

You take African studies instead of UA and world history?

You just made it blatantly clear you don't understand the concept of "white privilege."
