I've stopped using white privilege and just use privilege now. I've benefited from it, and yes, I happen to be white. Both my parents were middle class and together their whole lives so no broken home. They had the means to buy me all the necessities in life and also take me on many vacations to experience new places. In fact, they were able to pay for most of my college and buy me a car. With all those advantages, I had a much better chance for success. I now own my own house, have been married for almost a decade, we own two cars that are less than five years old and both paid off... when a couple medical issues came up, we had the means to pay for it.
