Hey, since you think it's perfectly fine, in a debate, to counter with, "I don't have to give you my reasons, but I don't find this believable," then we all can start doing that. You're setting the standard here.

I am going to declare that white privilege is not a thing. I don't find it believable. I will not give you a reason, because I don't need to give you a reason. I just think you're making it all up. Stop making up stories about white privilege. They're not believable!
Okay, have fun with that.

People are not equal? Is that what you just said?

White privilege is when black youth get their lives screwed over for minor drug possession when 5 miles down the street rich pampered white kids at the state school are doing mushrooms, coke, Xanax, oxy, weed, ecstasy and consuming any and all forms of alcoholic beverages.

Doesn't that make "white privilege" a misnomer if it is not possessed by all white people?

Which whites aren't privileged? How do those us without get the white privilege card?

Probably because 97% of the original Native American population is dead. Can't cry about racism when you're dead.

Work on your deflection tactics after you work on your reading comprehension.

I'd like to point out something that my fellow liberals are scant to mention:

Black people don't like ghetto either. I know, what? I'm a white female that lives in Atlanta. I have predominantly black co-workers and a very mixed bunch of friends. There are a LOT of black people that have the same kinds of conservative "white privilege" viewpoint that names like "Shonqueesha" are just inherently stigmatized in a negative manner thanks to a stereotype. And you know what they say about stereotypes. And let's cut the BS-- aside from ACTUAL African names like Ashanti and Shameka, most of these made-up names are 100 percent American. That would be like me naming my son ZitiLaLecheD'Meatball and saying it's a strong "Italian" name. Please.

This perspective to distance themselves from "ghetto behavior/stereotypes and dismiss the absurdity of "white privilege" is especially true of black people who were raised in very strict households, I've noticed. The ability to call a spade a spade. Not of course to say systematic racism isn't still alive today, but that's a separate animal.

So it's a little annoying, fellow liberals, when you lump all us crackas together as a homogenous blob. Privilege isn't as well-defined as you think it is.
