White privilege -- if you are white are you aware it exists? If you are not white are you aware it exits?

Are you aware of the reality which has been labeled 'white privilege'?

(it takes 2 seconds to find out what 'white privilege' is (google is our friend) ---- it takes a lot longer to accept it exists --- whether an indiviual accepts it or not does not change the fact it DOES exist).

if it exists, I want it! I'm white, I need a break too! I've never seen a "white privilege" ever. I grew up dirt poor just the same as all the kids around me of every color.

It's just another thing we're supposed to feel guilty about.

Quoting Melissa_4:

WTF? Pardon me, but are we supposed to be apologizing for having been born white now? *Rolling eyes.*

White and yes I'm aware. Any majority is going to have privilege. White, male, straight, etc.
