In my hood non-white privilege is when the non-whites can rob a store or sell dope while the Mexican cops harass a law abiding white man walking down the street and put him in jail if he tries to uphold the constitution when the Mexican cop who is under oath to do so won't.

Which whites aren't privileged? How do those us without get the white privilege card?
Let me know when you have educated yourself on what white privilege means, as of right now it is clear to me you have no idea what it means....

White privilege is when a fully grown white male can wave a loaded pistol in a park and point it at several police officers and have a long standoff without being riddled with bullets.

Black failure is when a black 6th grader plays with a gun and gets killed in 2 seconds. No questions asked.

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.
No one is saying black Americans like ghettos.

That is definitely an example of white privilege.

You have given the definition. It is white racism, so long as you can exempt yourself as a white person from being racist. You haven't been issued your White Privilege Card. Neither have I but you will say that I have.

You miss the point. The point is the people who tend to cry about "white privilege" the most are the ones who make the most excuses, like "no one should have to go jobless because their name is J'kwanda-A"

It's not "white privilege", it's because those names are dumb.

I guarantee you Asians and Mexicans judge those names the same way.

Sometimes stupid is just stupid.

Wrong. This is clearly a case of an idiot who died being an idiot.

He's talking about a 12 year old kid by the way.
