    Management for the company that I work for is admitting that they have enjoyed white privilege. Looking for help from you guys for intellectual arguments against this lie as this shi% filters down to the food chain.

    Tell him it's the result of several generations of discipline and work ethic.

    I will ask how privileged I am when my uncle was forced to change his first name in school. Wasn't the right ethnic group.

    Or when my brother and friends were stopped by the police when they were looking thru the windows of a garage.

    Any country offers privileges to the race of the people who founded that country. Why is this so hard to understand? If you go to Japan or China you have yellow privilege. If you go to Africa you have black privilege. It is just how it works. You establish a country, you get to make the rules.

    This seems like an interesting thread, but I can only see 2 posts in it. Almost tempted to start clicking on my ignore list until the rest show up. Almost.

    "White privilege" is racist as a phrase because it lumps all white people together and does not recognize the individual. For a white person to claim they have "white privilege" is also racist because it assumes every black person has it worse than every white person.

    White privilege examples during the Great Depression.

    Call their bluff and hint that, maybe, they should resign their positions, salaries and perks to a non-white. This will assuage their guilt.

    My white privilege comes from having 2 sets of grandparents who taught my parents the value of both education and hard work. fortunately the outward the lessons on to me and I to my children.

    Unfortunately that is not common anymore.

    We definitely enjoy white privilege at my place of employment. White people (along with Asians and Hispanics) enjoy the privilege of expeditious termination / dismissal, often at the word of a single mid-level supervisor or manager (being in management, I'm fine with this). Black people however, especially black females, have to go through a LOOOOONG and drawn out dismissal process, requiring many repetitions of the same egregious behavior which has to be witnessed by senior level management. White folk got it easy once again...

    It's a trap. It's part of the never ending pursuit of liberals trying to label all Whites as racist.

    Don't say anything.

    Yup, America is not racist.
