At some point. We have to stop being distracted by Racism, and their call for "white privilege"
Benefits they receive is mostly unearned, but we continue to give them more opportunity to further take us off course and message.
I obtained a letter from a white guy that was written years ago. He was applying for work.
The letter didn't talk of qualifications, or experience. It only highlighted that he was a good guy.
For white america that still exist. Benefit of doubt, and passes on the ordinary things we get hampered by.

Look at the structure of america, it is how it is set up.
How to get out from most of it is to plan out some things to accomplish ( job, education etc ) and go after it.

https://www.newyorker.com/books/page-turner/the-origins-of-privilege

The idea of “privilege”—that some people benefit from unearned, and largely unacknowledged, advantages, even when those advantages aren’t discriminatory —has a pretty long history. In the nineteen-thirties, W. E. B. Du Bois wrote about the “psychological wage” that enabled poor whites to feel superior to poor blacks; during the civil-rights era, activists talked about “white-skin privilege.”

But the concept really came into its own in the late eighties, when Peggy McIntosh, a women’s-studies scholar at Wellesley, started writing about it. In 1988, McIntosh wrote a paper called “White Privilege and Male Privilege

Everybody has __a combination of unearned advantage and unearned disadvantage in life.
Whiteness is just one of the many variables that one can look at, starting with, for example, one’s place in the birth order, or your body type, or your athletic abilities, or your relationship to written and spoken words, or your parents’ places of origin, or your parents’ relationship to education and to English, or what is projected onto your religious or ethnic background.

We’re all put ahead and behind by the circumstances of our birth.
We all have a combination of both.
And it changes minute by minute, depending on where we are, who we’re seeing, or what we’re required to do.

In order to understand the way privilege works, you have to be able to see patterns and systems in social life, but you also have to care about individual experiences. I think one’s own individual experience is sacred. Testifying to it is very important—but so is seeing that it is set within a framework outside of one’s personal experience that is much bigger, and has repetitive statistical patterns in it.

Big props for sharing this information with all of us!!!!!

‘Landmark ruling’: A woman is sent to prison in South Africa for using racial epithet

By Meagan Flynn

The officers arrived to assist a South African woman whose car was just burglarized, but she didn’t want their help. Or at least she didn’t want the help of a black officer, whom she repeatedly insulted in a racist rant. In a video that went viral in 2016, she repeatedly called him the k-word, a South African equivalent of the n-word ...

UEFA, European soccer’s governing body, had set out to investigate the monkey noises the Belgian Borussia Dortmund striker said he heard in an away game at Italian club Atalanta last month.
