@missmedic You referred two articles of news sites that have a known left-wing bias, one of them being known to produce fake news articles. Do you have legitimate scholarly statistics that show Americans of European descent benefit from non-existent privileges? Do White people have special scholarships because they are a minority? Are they favored in college admissions because they're a minority? Do White people get to be blatantly racist because they are considered oppressed? I would love to see such proof.

White privilege is like the air we breathe: We don't really know it's around us unless it's unavailable. For those who don't have access to it, it is very real, pervasive, and harmful. White people, however, often need to hear some examples of white privilege in order to understand how they benefit from it and how it hurts others. White people hate admitting that white privilege exists.
