I don't deny that being a minority gives people some disadvantages and that there are still stereotypes and discrimination floating around. However, in recent times we have really done a lot to battle those things and I think people in America for the most part don't discriminate based on race.

I don't deny that being a minority gives people some disadvantages and that there are still stereotypes and discrimination floating around.

However, in recent times we have really done a lot to battle those things and I think people in America for the most part don't discriminate based on race.

What I think is really going on when people spout about"white privilege" is the middle class and up that has more money, more status and more connections that make life a whole lot easier.

I really don't think you'd find a significant difference in advantages between an upper middle class white family and an upper middle class black family.

In my opinion, people only say white privilege because the middle class is mostly white. In America, minority communities are usually poor and live in inner cities.

That itself is a huge problem and has been a problem forever.

I think that if a white person grew in a poor inner city neighborhood, they would have hardly any, if at all, advantages over a black person in that same area.

I believe the real problem is wealth and connections and not skin color. I also think this talk of white privilege just misses the point and doesn't address the real problem of income inequality.

Edit: I changed my view and am no longer responding to comments.
