    It's an excuse for black failure. Black people are intellectually inferior to white people. IQ tests prove it and blacks are embarrassed about it. lol.

    Clear. And to exercise their anti-white racism with impunity. 'All the problems in the world are the fault of the whites' that must be his motto.

    My, how every question seems to have trolling included. It doesn't phase me at all, saying more about author than responder. White privilege is quite real. It isn't a theory. We can discuss its cause and components. It's not an excuse. That's right wing rhetoric to dismiss their own advantages in life. I've personally been reasonably successful, am white, but am intelligent enough to evaluate social and economic systems. 

    Setting aside the view of white privilege as cause, it isn't the main driver of our problems as a society. The skew of wealth and capitalism out of control is the problem, and it's white people that erected the system and structure that creates the massive skew and removal of safeguards.

    Non-partisan, non-racial, non-political studies show the gains in the USA since the mid-1970's have gone almost entirely to the top 10% of wealthy people. The Federal minimum wage has fallen 40% against inflation using only CPI and ignoring the effects of housing, medical, education.

    The systems are geared to the rich, and the rich are highly disproportionately white, and that could be the cause of white privilege. 

    I could propose that skew of wealth prevented equitable systems that spawned white privilege, that they prevented white advantages from going away.

    No. White men being as stupid as they are but being on top is proof.

    No. It's preferential treatment afforded to whites, by other whites, just for being white. It's being given the benefit of the doubt that you aren't out to hurt someone or commit a crime based on your skin tone.

    no, its inherent advantages possessed by a white person on the basis of their race in a society characterized by racial inequality and injustice.
