I don't know why people don't want to accept this truth.
How is it white privilege when a minority gets preference over a white person when applying for a job or college admission, with all other things being equal or even when the white person has the edge in other qualificiations?

I've talked to Black Americans who are much happier abroad, and have experienced LESS racism and/or no racism in countries other than America. Got to love that Western media, and how they portray the rest of the world. I see and understand why American's have such a negative reputation around the world. Places that I have researched that have excellent standards of living that are non-White majority are Barbados, Gabon, Seychelle, the Bahamas, Philippines, Nigeria, and much of the Caribbean those are the ones I can think of based on the little research I've done, I'm sure there's MANY more...Before anyone gives a knee jerk reply, please do your research.
This comment seems awfully familiar....
