    You presented something from 80-90 years ago to prove 'white privilage' I provided current interviews that shows today's reality.

    Try again.
    So no knock on effect?

    Also the policy occurred in the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60's so I'm sure the Republican had something to do with it.

    So if I put together a video of randoms saying the moon landings didn't happen you would believe it?

      Go ahead and look up what party pushed segregation throughout the 30s, 40's, 50's, and 60's.

        All that amounts to – which is generally the outsider's conclusion to the US train-wreck of politics and race – is that the US up to and including the 1960 had a political system fundamentally based on finding ways to ensure it was keeping the darkies in their place, how that clearly was the overriding concerns for most things in US society. No one forced the US to do that.

          A party, the democrats, fundamentally based on finding ways to segregate.

              Oh wait that's wrong; no blacks that was explicitly recorded as a fact.

              Fact.

                There are a lot of "whites" that have no "privilege" because they are not in the social and wealth clique you rave against. Just like in India, where there are a lot of Indians not in the social and wealth cliques that give someone who is a member privilege.
                All whites have privilege, some just have additional social class privileges thrown on-top of that.

                If you were to compare a poor white to a poor black, the poor white would have privileges not afforded to the black.

                Here's another example of white privilege, that all whites benefit from:

                  That's a two-edged sword though. Outside their families and closest friends, a black guy whose considered an under-achiever doesn't much surprise anyone, 'cause so little was expected of him any way -- but a white guy whose considered an under-achiever is a downright loser. He's no doubt dumber than the black under-achiever 'cause it's presumed that he started with more advantages. He's a double loser, maybe even a triple loser, depending on how many counts of disappointment you think he's guilty of.

                    Not just an issue in the USA; but likely anywhere that "white race" is majority/dominate;
                    ...

                    Why does racism exist in Scotland?

                    For many hundreds of years, white British society has enjoyed a position of economic, social, and political power over non-white people in Britain and across the world through empire and colonialism and their after-effects. Although people in Scotland often know little about this history, the social attitudes that developed over this time are still present in our society. This is known as ‘white ideology’, or sometimes as ‘white supremacy’. The advantages that this still brings to white majority ethnic Scottish people are known as ‘white privilege’.

                    White ideology, however, doesn’t only affect white majority ethnic groups. Whiteness is not just about skin colour. Non-white groups can also be influenced by white ideology, reflecting it in their own attitudes and behaviours in order to benefit from some of the power it brings or reduce the risk of being discriminated against. This would include, for instance, people being afraid to talk about racism for fear of offending their white friends. Those who speak out are often judged to have gone against the ‘normal’ (i.e. white ideological) view that racism is uncommon and mostly about personal prejudice. Disrupting that view makes people who subscribe to it uncomfortable. Black and minority ethnic people therefore often put their white friends’ feelings of sensitivity about race above their own need to address the racism they face.

                    At the most basic level, racism still exists in Scotland because white majority ethnic Scottish people are viewed as ‘normal’ in comparison to ‘other’ ‘diverse’ communities. Someone doesn’t have to feel hostile towards people from a minority ethnic group in order to have racist attitudes or to act in a racist way. The fact that Black and minority ethnic people are constantly treated as being different, even if several generations of their family have been born in Scotland, means that they face racism to some degree throughout their lives.

                      But materially they are WAY more likely to be better off.
