1.) This is a discussion about Race, this is not an excuse to be a bigot
2.) There is a deep connection between race and politics, but don't be ignorant.
3.) Accusing someone of trolling or arguing in bad-faith is dumb. Report them and move on! You're a big-boy.
4.) Fonz Rule: If you're not trying to be a part of the discussion, you're not welcome.
5.) I'm going to request to mods to not close the thread, and instead punish those who don't want to be a member of the discussion, keep this in mind before you post, and don't complain after.
6.) No insults.
Now I was watching this Louis CK skit
And he ended up covering White Privilege, or basically the few basic rights that being white gives you, that are not given to other people. Things like freedom from persecution, the automatic assumption that you're a hard worker or intelligent, and quite a few other things. Generally, it's better in America, the UK, and a few other places to be white then anything else. Even in places like Texas & Florida, where the average person is having his rights trampled on, being white enables you to rise past that. This ties into the privileges that being rich, well-off, or even middle-class would entail.
Say your Dad makes 50k a year, that will pay the mortgage, the car bills, the insurance, the gas, groceries and power, and have a bit left over for savings (or to pay off loans.) By your dad being able to make that money, you have the privilege to go get a decent education (someone in a lower income area simply wouldn't be allowed to get.) You also get to escape the danger, and worry that comes from living in a low-income area. You're not really thinking about being robbed, or beat up, or treated like shit. You're not thinking about the racist cop that stops you every time on 7th, so you cut around through 10th, but you've got to be careful because the bloods tend to start shit there. When you're in class, you don't have to worry about when you're going to eat, or if your rent is going to be paid. This is a privilege.
This is a privilege you have because your parents have resources, not for any work you did.
Now you could capitalize on that privilege and take it further, maybe you take advantage, go to that nice quiet school, study hard and after 15 or 16 years of hard work, you could have your own upper-middle class home! Way to go, that's really awesome that you had the chance to do that.
The point I'm trying to make is that not everyone does.
