People who think white privilege is a social construct are such fragile little snowflakes.

It's not a social construct? Then it's a natural thing? Wut

Blaaze, methinks 'twas in jest

Technically, that's not wrong Nina. It's a self-fulfilling social construct. As Alejandro points out below.

I would say that descirbes me, but the I thought I'm offended, how can you praise my own race like they are any better than all other races.(I just wouldn't say it isn't true, but this is racist)

White privilege doesn't mean being white us better. It means that Western society is setup to give greater advantages to white people and that the system is rigged to favour white people. Like if you send the same resume in for a job and one resume has a white sounding name and the other one has an ethnic sounding name, the white sounding name will get hired.

lacrymose ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ, I think the western society(europe) does better than most other places at accepting and trying to give all groups equel chances. I think when I go to other countries those people would probely favour them self more than me. And that is what I think is all that's happening

In this beautiful country of the USA their is no current Institutionalized racism where it's structures, policies, practices are resulting in differential access to the goods, services, and opportunities of society because of race/color. There is no modern structural absorbing this "White privilege" into our institutions of custom, practice and law. What we do witness (unfortunately) is the digusting racism and prejudice, discrimination, etc. Practiced and expressed by sick individuals and groups of people in the various industries that we have. This includes blacks on Koreans, blacks on mexicans, blacks on whites, Mexicans on Salvadorans,Mexicans on Blacks, Mexicans on Whites, Whites on Chinese, Whites on Blacks, Even amongst each others own people and so on. What we also also witness is Faction ideology posing as rational thought. If you are raised by faction leaders, counselors, etc to believe everyones brands prosper to the detriment of your own, than you will naturally conclude that every substantive aspect of ones life falls nearly into this moral presumption, including economics and the dispersal of wealth between factions such as race ,community, social class etc. The more earnestly someone embraces faction the more earnestly they abandon good sense and reason,fortitude and individual skills inventory abandonment. Their sense of capacity and ability to overcome personal adversaries gets chipped away and swallowed whole. There is no greater posion then this.

Wow. This is a very smart and comprehensive summary of the situation, imo. But in the end, this faction thinking leaves (some/many) white people better off, as they, as a group, hold most economic and political power. I guess, that's what feels like white privilege to those who don't analyze the situation the way you did.
