Do you agree that there is white privilege?

    There's probably some sort of white privilege in predominantly white nations. Likewise, there's also some sort of black or Asian privilege in predominantly black and Asian countries, respectively. Outsiders and minorities usually have it (slightly) harder. Something similar happens to queer people.

    Definitely not. I'm white, and I've had to work myself half to death to accomplish anything in this world.

    I live in a city that's half black. Most of the city workers are black. Bus drivers. Water department. Streets department. City representatives. Mail carriers. Courthouse employees. Almost all of these employees are black and these are well paying jobs. I know bus drivers make almost $30 an hour and so do the mail carriers. Psh...white privilege

    Do whites get treated slightly better than coloured people in identical situations? In many cases yes

    There's no such thing as white privilege.

    "So why did this asinine concept even become a thing"?

    Easy. Because once upon a time minorities such as African-Americans and Hispanics were forcefully enslaved in America largely at the hands of white people.

    And because of that historical injustice, anything that attacks whites from now until forever is fair game no matter how stupid, ridiculous, or horribly ignorant. Anything, all of it.

    Lincoln freed the slaves and established emancipation in 1864. That was over 150 years ago, which establishes 2 things:

    1) No black person today has ever endured slavery and

    2) No white person today has ever owned a slave

    And I'm not saying all of this as a white person, I'm 100% Mexican. But it doesn't take a white person to see how dumb the race baiting is. We live in the greatest and freest country in world history, count your blessings and stfu. [not u, I mean people in general]

    I agree to a point, but I think the term is too fluid and too oversold. There are lots people who are privileged for lots of different reasons.
