"White privilege" is a fiction. One can't be part of an 80% majority and have privilege. Privilege is something that few have and most do not. Be that as it may, there IS privilege in being black in this country. So here's a partial list of some of the aspects of black privilege...
1. Having a world of lowered requirements for things ranging from college admissions to government grants and hiring, and even? to privae sector hiring. If you're black, you have lower hurdles to clear.
2. There are people like Tim Wise and millions who think like him who will blame any failure on? the part of black people on white people.
3. You can call yourself a thug, blurt out stupid comments onto a recording, and be hailed as an urban prophet.
4. You have a VERY small chance of being victimized in crime by a person of another race.
5. If you ever are, despite its rarity, it will likely make national news and be portrayed as the norm.
