Yeah, if someone claims "white privilege," I treat them as though they tattooed a butthole on their forehead.
Can be is an interesting choice of words. Other than the gun toating cousin screwers we keep locked in the south most racism is "minorities"
There's plenty of gun toting cousin screwers up north.
What about people with foreheads tattooed on their buttholes
Way to go whitey
*confused* Why are you licking the bridge of my nose?
Wild CUNT appeared!
Time to unfriend Melllllisa.
gasp, no! Almost like they are individual people, not a collective boogieman from that exists only as a mirror for your own identity!
Why did you put white first though? ;p
I...I don't know.
Honestly most of the racism I've ever been personally exposed to was from other non-white people.
Took me a second to realize "self crit" didn't involve doing double damage to yourself.
How do you know the comments are from a 'minority '
Wat makes it funnier is it's actually easier for minorities to get into universities, because ppl say they need to be "more diverse"
Got em........ You know, I assume.
Fuck you Melissa!!!
STOP PEEPING IN MY WINDOWS !!!!!!
@Acefowl is confused. ???. ???. He hurt himself in his confusion!
I can definitely agree. Sometimes it feels like we’re expected to condone for ancestors’ transgressions. Like I feel bad but I didn’t do it
Same. I have to feel bad for deeps done by "white people" from a 150 years ago by people who won't take responsibility for their kids
Is it black privilege to be able to claim white privilege on everything? (THIS IS A JOKE PLEASE DON'T CRUCIFY ME)
More examples of why I deleted Facebook long ago.
Huh? I guess that yellow person « won » ?
I think melissa deserves a fuck you and a block
This looks like the kind of shit a twat would say to make themselves feel better just because they're a failure
This is what happens when the unintelligent take social concepts and abuse them. Anybody of any color can be racist, but white privilege can
..exist in certain societies like America. This particular situation, no. Yale student napping in the common room, yes. Everyone can find ex
..amples to showcase prejudice. Not everyone can analyze the broader, social interactions in a society molded by a complicated history.
But this particular person was a racist cunt.
I hate that yellow person! Wait, is that racist too?
Think you mean atone? Condone makes a kind of sense if I think about it too hard.
Throwing in a stereotype defeats the point you were trying to make.
Aside from the being yellow? Off-color humor aside, OP probably saw their picture before drawing over it in Paint.
White privilege is one of the dumbest concepts these racists have come up with.
The white race is the only race it's okay to be openly racist towards.
This shit is out of control. Their is a large government body we can thank for this horrible episode of the twilight zone we now exist in.
Why do you think someone is posting this old silly exchange? I think @op is a racist trying to stir shit and suggest this is typical.
The worst part about this is how that idiot dismisses all that and still somehow feels like they're fuckin genius.
I don't think we keep them there, they just don't wanna leave.
Can be? Almost every minority I’ve encountered had been racist to me
I worked at a Chinese restaurant and later a sushi place with a bunch of Koreans. 2 of the most racist groups of people I've known.
I grew up in the south so I cannot agree, but I can say that online it sounds about even. Which makes me pretty damn sad.
I worked as a paramedic in a big city. The most vile racist shit I ever saw was by black people towards white people. It’s not even close.
So, she’s an ass with inappropriate timing and unnecessary attitude, but her point that he has privilege isn’t wrong because of that. (1/5)
Also, when used as the world is intended racism implies systemic power she doesn’t have. She’s prejudiced and she’s behaving offensively.(2)
It’s true that he’s got privilege on his side, but he also went through some rough shit and busted his ass to be successful. (3/5)
Arceus bless Game Freak for making sure confusion damage can't crit.
Privilege doesn’t mean an easy life. It means that there are fewer odds stacked up against you to start-it doesn’t say how many of those (4)
odds will actually affect you. Good for him, good riddance to her; and, (shit! 5/6!)
I hope we can all try to see shit with nuance and not just jump to emotional reactions! (6)
And the award for lowest res facebook post that never happened goes to...
This seems fake to me. I don't disagree people can be bigots regardless of race, but do we have ANY verification for this?
Sounds like Melissa is a jealous twat who needs to stop acting like she got it rough and get off her lazy ass.
I wanna name
Wow, sounds about the time that Melissa ran her worth out as a friend.
We're all scum
*races are the only races
You need to learn how to count bud. (1/1)
Yeah she’s a racist. I think it’s a she. Cunt.
Unfriend em’. Hate people who try to ruin others achievements.???? ???? ????

Crucifixion is more of a religious thing than a race thing, from what I understand. (ALSO A JOKE, NEVER READ THE BIBLE PLS DONT CRUCIFY ME)
Nah, if anygjing Melissa Nat-1'ed Her diplomacy check, then rolled low on intelligence and comprehension.
Controversial opinion: White privilege exists, it's just not as widespread or prominent as radicals make it out to be.
If say that’s more of a cunt than anything else
Bitch, I AM a minority
I like how someone downvoted this after it was deleted
What makes that statement sad is that you absolutely have to specify that its a joke. People, in general, are weak.
And 4 people upvoted
Wouldn't a black family of millionaires who live next to the dean and are well - regarded in their community have fewer odds stacked >
Something something Google
What a CUNT!
When’s was applying to med school, it was MUCH easier to get in as a minority. To increase diversity.
*shys away* I saw it in MV-random posted 3 years ago

Privilege had nothing to do with her success
Is it me?
I'm Anishinaabe. Status card and everything.
And got smacked the fuck down like the rampant slag she was.
Oh _I_ believe you.
Given the way you titled this I don't feel wrong thinking you might have already had issues to begin with.
Well if you don't do hard drugs and shoot people you might seem privileged.
Yeah this is totally a real post. I mean it's on the internet and everything
That's not what that means. White privilege doesn't mean you have it better than every black person.
you can't be racist against white people tho.
Knew a kid once, wanted to do stupid shit, would tell him to stop. "Oh it's cause I'm black isn't it?" "No it's b/c you're being a moron"
Ummm ok sweetie. You claim to understand cunts, but do you even masturbate?
and then everyone on facebook clap emojied
Did someone say anal?
White privilege IS a thing. Just not in this case.
Online is mostly made up of white people who aren't looking for or as sensitive to racism towards non-whites.
Bill Burr taught me it's alright to want to slap the shit out of Melissa, but that it's not a good idea to do it.
Minority privilege exists. Affirmative action sound familiar? People being hired solely in the name of diversity? Sounds like privilege.
No need for verification when Imgur is talking about how whites are the REAL victims. Any obvious troll or fake post will do.
You hit the nail on the head
who said anything about black ppl? damn you went there fast tho.
That's where babies come from.
It's pretty widespread, but it mostly comes down to not being a target of systemic racism. A problem with the term is that people tend to >
Cunts like that don't deserve explanation, just condescending retaliation on their own failures
I feel as if “Wealth privilege” would be a much better term.
> think of privilege as a leg up, when white privilege is more of one less weight (of which there may be many) pushing down.
Don't even know who that is, but I'm pretty out of the loop these days. Regardless, I'm definitely not saying that there's not plenty of
Man I wish my life was so miserable that I had to shit on the accomplishments of others to feel good about myself.

There was a time where WoW paladins would sit (which would force crits) and get hit by mobs to stack a buff for pvp.
Wow you are fucking stupid.
And block her and remove those comments so no one else Loses brain cells
Your attempt to be witty and scathing fell apart halfway through, but kudos for going all the way to the end. Better luck next time.
Eh, White privilege exists, I've received some benefit from it, but it's impact is much smaller than class privilege.

people are just as likely to be racist regardless of their own race, especially if they are raised in an environment where that's the norm
That is a nasty looking forehead you got there.
I mean, it's kind of "perfect". Over-the-top assholery directed at a person with a really tragic back story. Could be real, but it's fishy

Nah, I've benefited from it, it's a real, measurable social effect, it's impact is dwarfed by class privilege, though.

Truth, I'm an Asian and the most racist person I've met in Canada is a black guy. At least white people can control themselves.

Unless of course they are bragging about ascending the ranks of the KKK
What stereotype did he use?
concentrate on a single type. Just because someone has one or two sources of privilege, doesn’t mean they have them all.
Words don't have meanings because morons misuse them. Racism and privilege are a thing but concept creep has turned them into pejoratives.
You go. Doubt Melissa got in so you won’t have to worry about that bitch or what she thinks.
Went to a new bar few years ago with friends. Halfway to the back for some drinks, a white male patron yells "Who let the chinks in?"
No it doesn't the whole idea is based on lies.
Racism is a system (hence -ism). Privilege is passive, like better schools from higher property value/taxes. Not "lol u only win cuz white".
Is it a sexy butthole?
And then they wonder why is it harder for them find a job than to a white-colored applicant who has the same level of education.

Are you under the impression that no other race suffers from racism in America? Because all WP does is prevent that behaviour.
you get to set yourself way up top on your own pedestal. That bringing other people down delights you so much more than brining them up ever
What the actual shit... how do these people even think about such vile things? How does it occur to them to see "other" people as inferior?
could. You crave the chance to be a negative, hating canker if it means you get to prove to a complete stranger that you’re better than them
More like drive her to the woods and make her learn about privilege
Regardless of this topic, if something isn't true in a specific situation, doesn't mean it doesn't exist
The examples of white privilege are always anecdotal though. It's always used to describe individual's experiences as a collective, not law.
I'd be much, much happier if you guys didn't call women cunts, slags, twats, bitches, and so on. Why is it so important to remind everyone
how sexist you are?
Then punch them in the butthole.
Being privileged doesn't make you a bad person. It doesn't invalidate achievements. And it doesn't apply equals across demographics
I feel like the people running around calling women cunts are the ones bringing people down in the first place. Why is it always the person
Probably better people than Melissa
I used to think that too. Then I moved to a different city, and now I'm surrounded by this kind of trash everywhere I look.
who notices you being an asshole who's the real asshole?
They are different. White privilege is the advantage that come from living within a system set up by white people, FOR white people. 1/2
Which, seemingly, would also not apply to the poster.
I grew up never really seeing much racism. Until I came to high school. Then almost all racism was between different minorities.

These "racist minority" posts are their bread and butter. I have 600 more of those screenshots that would shock you just as much. I'm by no
Yeah, it's very racist to assume that im rich just because im white

Rich privilege is the thing that exists
Technically it just isn't a negative. People who are white don't suffer from the same systemic racism, but I they don't get treated better.
Trump who promise to crack down hard on hispanics and muslims, all the while demonizing them. It's a vicious cycle
Given the amount of young black men who go away from the same, it's kinda both. Not your fault, though.
because not once has a man ever said "don't call me a dickhead! that's sexist!" that word and every one you said is suppose to be insulting
I had a class mate in medical school who got kicked out of undergrad with a GPA of 1.75. Accepted solely because of race quotas.
these people use made up phrases for words that already exist, like "introspect" so they have the opportunity to explain it to you.
(2/2) of white people (mostly a small group of elite and wealthly aristocrats) actually had massive amounts of slaves
Clearly you have nothing of substance to offer in this debate, so I won't bother to your ineloquent sewage.
Is there a long history of people using the word "dickhead" as a sexist phrase to keep men down? Almost like words have history and context!
Don't know that one but feel free to add it
Please elaborate. Go on.
There are multiple kinds of privilege. Most people in general can't do fuckall to have an effect on white privilege, or any privilege.
Are... are you female? Theres no gender specificity in your name. Yet you're pissed at being called a cunt. Anyone can be a cunt. Or a dick.
Last year outside of the GNR concert in Minneapolis I was called a white bitch by a group of girls for no reason, just walking by.
This basically porn for the imgur circle jerk.
I mean, red obvi worked hard to overcome a shitty life & def deserves to be where she is now... And it still doesn't erase white privilege.
I've never felt guilty about it. Smoking weed in a park at midnight really shouldn't be something you get arrested for to begin with. But...
To be honest, and speaking as an Asian out of Asia, I seem to see more white people more than anyone else screaming white privilege.
If it's systemic then why is every example of it anecdotal? Why are there non-whites who dispute it? Why is it purely ideology based?
...it HAS always been something that makes me a little more conscious of racial privilege, and inclined me to be more tolerant and...
Nor should you. It's not something you had a choice in. "White privilege" isn't something to feel guilty about. Just be aware.
...understanding of people with criminal records in general. For those things, I'm actually glad for the experience.
There are definitely data that demonstrate white privilege. It is not just anecdotal.
probably because you're the real asshole
That's liquid gold, coming from someone who named themselves 4FingersInYourDog and is incapable of spelling "breathe." Thanks for the laugh!
If this person had had the same life experiences, but had also been black, their life would likely have been even harder.
Give me a break. When every time someone posts about an objectionable women and top comments say "cunt!," "slag!," "twat!," nobody is fooled
No you haven't. It isn't real. Culture and race are not hand in hand. Your culture gave you advantages not your race. They aren't the same.
I’ll do you one better, who is Gamora?
After reverse google searching this, I only found reference to this on some right wing news outlets none of which have a source. Link below
Melissa is a cunt.
Is this one of those kung-fu bears I've heard so much about?
Pretty sure the whataboutism was when you typed "then what about this guy".
Because calling someone a body part is not related to the body part owners gender you dickheaded cunty asshole.
Because I notice you saying nasty sexist things and I don't just ignore it?
It's been a mix for me. Everyone can be racist.
I'm not saying you're racist or agreeing with the other guy at all but by your own words being a minority doesnt mean you can't be racist.
WHY is it there are some who can't bear the idea that a white person may have WORKED for their success?? Yellow is just a social lamprey.
"I AM a minority, therefore it's impossible for me to be racist towards anyone! It's the law, look it up, sweetie" - OP
I am a white dude who spent a good chunk of time in the South Bronx in a <1% white neighborhood. I was targeted for harassment and...
Can't we just use all the stupid people to colonize Mars? Please?!
Sometimes it's not, but when every objectionable women that gets posted on Imgur gets called cunt, bitch, twat, then yes. It totally is.
As a fellow hispanic yankee, it's been about 50/50 for me
I said IF we're using anecdotal evidence. So yeah. Don't blame me for playing by your rules.
Maybe I'm old school but I still believe racism just means hating someone because of what race they are.
...occasionally violence on a racial basis several times during those years. It sucked. Let me tell you, there is a stereotype in places...
Data where though? FBI statistics don't support it, hiring on merit doesn't support it. There's non-whites who dispute it. It's ideological
similar but more, guy to overhead sign in deadpool
No, that class is race restricted to pandas. I suppose DM can make whatever exceptions you want, but the written rules say panda exclusive
Show me what data you're referencing cause I've not seen anything like that in my searches.
Ya, I never got why people stay friends with toxic people like this. I don't need that shit in my life.
Especially when you think about how many white people died trying to free the slaves here in the US.
Which doesn't make sense considering most people's ancestors likely had nothing to do with those transgressions. Mine were poor laborers 1/2
It could be real but it seem suspicious. It's a perfect an example that fits a certain narrative. If it is real, then Melissa is a dick.
People, dont downvote the guy for asking for elaboration.
I know what white privilege is because I know I embody it, but ffs it doesn't just apply to every white guy ever.
Is this even real tho
Not that I expect any standards from the FOX and The Mail but would you expect from BuzzFeed and Snopes to publish it?
Why are you friends with such a person? That much is at least your fault.
...like that that white people are good mugging targets because they are all rich and lack street smarts.
The moment a cunt like this appears is the moment they should get unfriended and blocked from everything. There's no fixing stupid.
Hopefully you are not suggesting you were ever a viable candidate for med school in that discordant drivel.
FBI crime statistics don't favor whites. Police kill more whites. If you hire on merit, race is irrelevant. Hard to explain in 140 chars
Or the fact that most slaves were captured and sold by blacks in Africa. History and facts don't seem to matter much.
You can. People who aren't victims of institutionalized racism can still be victims of racism and discrimination. Its root is a mindset
You know they're opinionated, and seem to ruin everything by bringing up privilege, so why have them friended?
Fastest way to get yourself blocked is to tell me I'm privileged. Parents paid their way through school just to get laid off. Suck it dry.
Use mindreader then guillotine!
Who immigrated to the US well after slavery and the Native American genocide had ended. 2/2
White people notice that.
Well any creature with arms can perform a grapple attack action against another creature no more than 1 size category larger.
Ooh, recreational outrage
Have seen many posts by alleged women, none were harassed the way you claim they were, cunt.
till you call a Korean person Japanese or vice versa.
So if the person was kicked out of undergrad how was he/she/it in medical school? Sounds suspicious to me...
and much easier to fail out because admissions loves to accept POC w/ lower MCAT/GPA and do nothing to support them on the opposite side =D
I love the downvotes for literally just defining the term.
Well look what happens when someone points out your sexism. You guys attack like jackals. Nobody wants to be in the middle of that.
Sure you can, we're easy targets. I love cargo shorts, Eminem, and using slang incorrectly. And my karaoke game is totes on fleek.
It's how they tear down those more successful than themselves. Melissa here preaches self crit, but seems to be sorely lacking in it herself
How was he supposed to know you're a woman? lol We're just supposed to assume your gender? I call males & females cunts for equality.
I am Australian so I use the word cunt a lot it is just something we say but if I am completely honest with you about 90% of the time 1/3
Except nobody is praising this lady, are they? They're using it in a negative, sexist way. Obviously.
And if you don't believe me then go through my comment history, i use cunt a looot. Like how some people just say 'dude' i say 'cunt'.
Crit is only x1.5 in gen 7 atleast and dropped to a ~4% chance. Pokémon facts coming in hot.
Could also give a dentist appointment with the curb.
Excatly what any minority would say, any minority that says otherwise is lying on the internet

My new goal in life is to find a tattoo artist capable of accomplishing...this.
This is like someone saying, "burgundy is darker than red," and you concluding, "That's true, so red can't possibly be a dark colour." (1/2)
I'm not sure what I'd expect from BuzzFeed, though I'm not a fan. Snopes always seem reliable but without a source I wouldn't trust it
I mean introspective has been a word for a long time, im assuming its just based on that.
Maybe have a thicker skin if you're going to interact with people on the internet? They are just words and you're acting like a child.
People on this site call women cunts, bitches, slags, twats, then when you call them out, they're like "Well, Australians call everyone
I'm descended from a clan of notorious cattle thieves, should I be arrested?
Happy Birthday to the GROOOOOUND!
cunts." even though they're using it in the obviously sexist American way, b/c they're using other sexist words alongside it!
I use it, it is either in a positive manner eg “that person is a mad cunt (a great person)” or in reference to a man usually still 2/3
Did you just assume my nationality?
It's Super Effective!
Did you want me to respond to what you said, or did you wanna shout memes at me?
Really, there are just a lot of racist people out there, but most don't have the shock value of "racist white folks".
Is that not the point of my post?
Race doesn't really exist, but yeah, my skin-color was advantageous to me in my culture.
The thing that saddens me most is you feeling you need to clarify you're a minority who found this funny.
You did respond. I just don't care about what other people said. Because it has no impact on the things i said.
I am not even saying Snopes is not reliable, but they definitely have a publication selection bias (just as the other side has one as well)
I was excepted to 1 of 18 med schools. With good MCAT scores and a good gpa. Quite successful now.
I'm split, red yay ???? yellow ????. Sisters adopted going to the vest school in the country
I'm acting like a child because I notice when you guys call people childish sexist names and object to that?
I say the things i say for my own reasons, not because other people do it so i think it's ok. I'm not a sheep and think for myself.
That's the exact mindset that breeds tension between races. If you say that, you are racist and you support conflict and segregation.
How can I without giving out my identity, photo, etc?
(the attrition rate for academic reasons being 6.7% in black americans compared to the .7% of white americans)
Class privilege existing/trumping other forms of privilege doesn't mean it's the only form in existence. There's no logic to that reasoning.
It’s like playing chess with a pigeon. You know the rest
..."accepted". Seems unlikely.
Really? Because you're saying the exact same shit as every other idiot I'm arguing with right now.
No, all WP does is showcase the soft bigotry of low expectations. It inflames racial tension, cuz it gives PoC a boogyman to blame.
But you're upset because people are using a word that some other people deemed as a bad word It's a sound and carries the weight you give it
You just described Social Justice
Positively and under no circumstance will i use the word to describe female genitals. So no I don’t think it’s use is inherently sexist. 3/3
"every other idiot i'm arguing with" lol See? the fact you're fighting with multiple people kinda shows you mindset. You like to be angry
When I’m about to clap back, I check, double check, and triple check all that shit. It’s WORTH the effort, dammit.
Sounds like Lakreesha is mad.
Aye, this is a gender neutral, asexual sort of cunt.
Your skin color wasn't an advantage because of your skin color. It was considered an advantage because of your culture. That's the issue.
I'd much rather none of you called women cunts and slags and bitches in the first place. I'm not making you respond. I'm just telling you
Know what i do when someone calls me a cunt? I call them a cunt back. Know how many of my lady friends use cunt? maybe 2 or 3 of them.
I'm always pleasantly surprised to come across comments like yours here. It feels to me like Imgur is increasing leaning that way now, (1)
Post her address..... Imgurians got your back!
how I feel. Whenever I object to y'all being sexist, two dozen angry assholes descend on me immediately.
If you're referring to Union soldiers who died in the civil war then most of then caught to preserve the Union and not to free slaves.
a) You would be foolish to do so. b) I don't know, but I'm not the one claiming not to be some white, pig-fucking racist.
like even in this situation this kid still had white privilege even if he suffered from other forms of oppression - like that dude should 1
most of our generation nowadays.
Like i said before, i call both sides cunt. It's not a gender thing to me, it's just a word. A word you are giving so much power over you
Villainizing minorities and making small instances of racism directed at white people seem like it's the norm. This post even seems too (2)
2 absolutely be able to look at his situation and say - yes I had it hard, yes I worked my ass off and this was not handed to me, but I
My family never even owned slaves. They came to the US long after all that. Yet some still think I should basically apologize for slavery.
It's obviously being used negatively against a woman here, just like every other damn time an objectionable woman gets posted.
*Black mirror intensifies*
Ok, then what purpose does it serve other than to cause racial tension?
Who is "your"? Just checked Rhino4's feed and the only time he's said "what about" is quoting you.
In the words of Daniel Hardcastle "These people deserve to have very painful lobotomies"
I think that’s the difference between guilt and shame. I am not guilty of my country’s history, but I am deeply ashamed of it. (Aussie)
3 would have had to work that much harder if I was also black/female/had a disability etc
So how do I turn in my "white privilage" then? If it is going to be used to discredit me, I would like to get rid of it.
Conveniently tragic -- tragically perfect -- IMO: the first person grew up in an orphanage, took care of their brother, eent through (3)
Melissa's being an asshole, but she's not wrong about white privilege.
Everyone who upvoted that comment,including you and him
Old post but still relevent
Foster care/adoption, got rejected and put back in the system, got perfect grades, never partied or socially interacted, and got into #1 (4)
Something tells me they didn't know how to defend their argument and just left cause that's cool and proves your point apparently
I haven't upvoted anything, you're just lashing out at straw men.
That's true, I noticed that as well. The only thing that was missing was "you won the lottery and wasted it all on impulse purchases!"
Who says we're angry? I'm sitting here watching a funny video while talking to you. You're the one mad at a word. Chill out.
just because he lacks other forms of privilege doesnt mean he doesn't still benefit from white privilege in his life
Bullshit(In absolute numbers, yes, in proportion? Horribly false.) and False. Sources in reply.
Just because it isn't a public record of what you voted for doesn't mean it's not true. I'm being perfectly reasonable. You on the other
Choice university! Meanwhile, person 2 is incapable of reading comprehension, is condescending to the poor orphan, and racist! Interesting
Sorry Melissa, yeah, my white privilege stayed home and wrote papers while I partied and mocked minorities. Forgot.
Oh I'm sorry, 23 angry assholes and one guy who's totally just chilling.
hand are insistent that I've done something wrong and think that I have to capitulate to your outrage machine.
And yet here we are. 6 years past fellowship. $500k a year. Medical director. On the board. Crazy world.
So does black privilege, man privilege, woman privilege, adult privilege, etc. Everyone has privilege to some degree.

1) White people make up roughly 62 percent of the U.S. population but only about 49 percent of those who are killed by police officers.
lol he always knows ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
I liked it...
1) Black Americans, however, account for 24% of those fatally shot and killed by the police despite being just 13% of the U.S. population.
This is a publication selection bias issue though. This is picking up unverified stories to fit your narrative.

Make sure they are Melissa’s ethnicity just to make it dig at her inner racist.
I counted 8 unique names that responded to your comments. Please don't exaggerate to make yourself seem more victimized than you are :P
Ugh, fuck Melissa
Certainly BuzzFeed is guilty of this, but a political leaning should not affect this. The Telegraph, for example, is right leaning but...
I'd say no, what if she gets brain damage, but really, some brain damage would be at worst a lateral move. Might even improve her IQ
This looks like some sort of fake post specifically designed to piss people off and encourage derision.
I have an outrage machine? Cool. Quick question, what does it look like, because this is the first I've heard of it. But on a serious note:
Privilege doesn't have a purpose. it's just something people are born with. It's important to be aware of when we have it.
a reliable source of news.
You can't prove that, that's just another anecdotal strawman.
Oh sweet, being pedantic in response to obvious hyperbole. Those are always my favorite arguments.
2/2 Being taught self respect, hard work, and how to take every opportunity when it presented itself made me feel privileged as a motherf’er
Your first "what about" was reasonable, but to then come in right afterwards and start railing against "whataboutism" is 100% hypocritical
1 It absolutely can be - take studies where identical resumes were sent in with different names/genders and the white male ones were least
I can tell you have a fav argument type. Your comment history is mainly just fighting with people. Are you happy with being mad all the time
I'll bet my alleged son this isn't a real interaction
2 likely to be criticized/more likely to be favored - meaning everything else controlled for being white and male gave those applications
3 an automatic boost. So in this scenario perhaps his scholarship essays would have been less likely to be selected if he was also black
I am not arguing whether that person is being sexist or not, I am arguing the implication that the use of that word is implicitly sexist.
Why? You're admitting it's just a "Oh shit look! I'm white! Welp, time to go about my day like normal, glad I noticed it though!"
I just wanna look at funny pics, but y'all gotta make everything about how much you hate SJWs, women, minorities, etc, etc.
You do know ‘not treated badly’ means the same as ‘treated better’, right?
Yeah, I actually agree on this. Good point, though to be honest, I don't watch need anymore, unless it's something I feel to be so 1/
It doesn’t in the way that term is thrown around. The thing that actually exists is “Personal
4 I'm not saying this person didn't have the odds stacked against them but it doesnt make privilege as a concept go away
The internet is full of people that just say shit like this. You can change the minds of maybe 1% of them. But you choose to get in fights.
Just because it's not sexist 100% of the time, people on Imgur treat it like it's NEVER sexist, even when it's obviously that.
I once worked at a small business in an upper class neighborhood. My boss refused to hire a black person because he was scared that (1/3)

I'm telling you guys how I feel, just like everyone else says how they feel. If you wanna argue with how I feel, I'll argue back.
That's the only example I have, though, so I can't say whether or not my personal experience was an anomaly. (3/3)
mockery of “white privilege” and flat out ignore any other “non-white race privileges”
Why did you tag this as funny? This is infuriating. What an asshole.
You did not start this off with telling us how you felt lol I probably would've said something like "The word 'cunt' is really offensive 1/2
and it upsets me that people use it so willy nilly and downplay the severity of the word"
As a working class father, I work pretty damn hard for my kids 'privilege' and I won't, nor would expect my kids to ever apologize for it.

i mean I'M going to fail out because i'm on imgur instead of step studying but I dont think I can make that the admissions fault... maybe
Hahah you think I didn't start out doing exactly that?! I got the exact same sort of responses I got tonight. It doesn't matter how
respectfully you present the "cunt is offensive" argument on Imgur. People will try to tear you apart no matter what.
I support my “Smart Privilege” over my “white privilege”. Best part, I didn’t even study performance arts or music...it was Accounting.
Holy shit, as an American I want to thank you. Tomorrow all of my friends at work, male and female, will ask be called "rampant slags"
Oh I think it's fair, I'm just not. Cunt.
I think you were down voted by 3 other twats ( I hear they stick together)
My joy takes NOTHING from you. Asshole.
I meant it stops white people from being subjected to systemic racism, but it is also a fun target for people looking for one.
That's what you get for going on facebook.
And that's the point. People will always tear you down, but you throw yourself into the feeding frenzy and get upset people take the bait.
and what if you don't have a sob story? do unsuccessful PPL actually console them selves by believing every one else is privileged?
And that’s when you cut Melissa out of your life. Nobody needs a toxic bitch like that in their life.
"hey you having a good day?" "Sure am you rampant slag"
It would be so easy if it wasnt fake
It isn’t obviously that though “wild cunt appeared” is not a sexist statement with out anything following it or tone conveying sexism 1/3
If nobody ever objects, it only seems more and more acceptable to them. I don't mind jumping on a grenade now and then to remind them.
Just because a lot of people on imgur are/do say sexist thing doesn’t mean you can assume something is sexist what had not sexist content 2/
Cool story, cunt
"White" names got 1 interview per 10 resumes, 'Black' names got 1 interview per 15 resumes.
Idiocy knows no racial boundaries. This is less about minorities being racist than it is stupid people being, well, stupid.
This resume thing got debunked cuz names are misleading. It's not controlled and it's not significant enough to prove WP as a fact.
Are you that ignorant? White is a race. Racism is prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race.
That is not true in this context. For instance; Family > Same Race > Other Race. That's Better > Neutral > Badly in this context.
If the statement had been followed by something sexist or had tone (it doesn’t it is text) conveying sexism then you original accusation 3/
When it's every objectionable woman getting called that every. single. time. people get the message. It's not subtle.
Your acceptance rate for Yale goes up if you're a minority.
The second highest upvoted reply to that comment calls her a slag, another sexist word.
Well I know i can't change your mind, but this isn't the place to try and be a self proclaimed martyr. People just attack and move on after.
Of sexism would be valid, but none of that is the case so you are just assuming that it is sexism based on that anecdotal evidence 4/4
"And you killed my mother and made me an orphan in the first place, then your family took my inherited fortune from me!"
Systemic racism isn't a definitive term. It doesn't mean anything without actual laws to point to that show discrimination based on race.
Can't say you're wrong there.
Yeah, but so do I. Calling it jumping on a grenade is probably a little overdramatic, I admit.
I have no idea what the fuck I just saw, but I love it.
but in dnd generally it does 2x damage. So I assume that was the intended referance.
Sex turns straight people gay and turns gays into Mexicans. Everyone goes down a notch
damn you white people just love getting in on all the fun of racism. You have to completely bend the concept to uphold whiteness.
That's how I know I can trust you.
You are racist “af”
Yes but that is a different persons statement it doesn’t effect the intent on the original statement. The original comment may have been 1/2
If you encounter stuff like this in real life then yeah confront them about it. People are more responsive to face-to-face debates.
Melissa is a BIIIAATCCHHH
ah yes, we must do our best to make white people comfortable to overcome racism.
But on the internet via text, you're just faceless and they tie little to no emotions to these conversations.
You're correct that their's nothing magical about my skin, but 'In north America' is what I was talking about as an unspoken qualifier.
I rented to be sexist but if is wasn’t the second statement from another person doesn’t intern make the original statement sexist 2/2
Unfortunate that someone accepted to medical school has a hard time with the word condescend. ... :D
When you see every woman called that every time on Imgur, you stop giving people the benefit of the doubt. I think they're both sexist.
If it were truly the case, why the fuck is there "white trash" or "trailer trash"? There may be economic trends but it is not privilege .
ah yes, we must always look to dictionary.com to understand the complexities of racism. it is the only way.
You can’t just assume because other people have done been sexist that this is sexist. You are now participating in what you are arguing 1/
Isn’t that “minority privilege” then?
You dickweeds will fall for even the most blatant trolls if you get the chance to say "See? They're racist, not me!"
Is wrong. You are essentially saying because other men on imgur have said sexist thing they are all saying sexist things. How is that 2/
Yeah, it's so terrible being white. You're such a brave, brave victim.
Yeah but people just call it Affirmative Action and try to claim it's not just state-sanctioned privilege.
Aye, there's the rub, ain't it?
Not also sexist? 2 wrongs don’t make a right. I am not arguing women don’t cop sexism more than men because they do and they shouldn’t 3/
Facebook variety dumb shit
Just as how men keep getting called dick, neckbeard, incel & such. Shove your victim complex back up your ass.
Well- we don't know if the cunt is a minority. Rare but she could be white.
Well that's all I'm saying, it's not actually skin that's the problem it's the culture of the people. Not all, but many are shitty & idiotic
But the way to fix it isn’t more hate. I believe the only way to fix it is more calm conversations like we are have where people 4/
I'm gay. Wanna say that again?
Are making calm well thought out and polite points and objections. 5/5
Most viral random proves your point
Do the work. No option.
The existence of poor white people doesn't disprove white privilege on the whole, mate.
Not me, but I agree
Doubt it. Although, this *IS* Facebook

Part of that demographic 2/2
I’ve been fairly successful in life so far, partly due to my hard work and partly to happenstance. I wouldn’t call that white privilege 1/2
Probably isn't even a 'minority' because its usually teenaged white girls that wave the 'racist/privilege/male'-flagg like crazy
When someone calls a guy a dick is that sexist?
..everyone just had varying levels of luck (eg input towards success not their own) in their life. Maybe white people have more... 2/3
...but it makes sense to judge this individually, and no sense to berate one for it.
Does the word "dick" have a long history of being used to marginalize men and shit all over their contributions to society?
I'm not sexist for noticing y'all being sexist, no. That's just another version of the "you're the REAL racist for noticing my racism" thing
Why do you all care about this shit so much?
I love this disgusting & retarded idea that people calling out racism against white people think they're the only victims of racism.

You guys are the ones being intentionally ignorant and hiding behind the "sometimes it's not offensive" thing to use it offensively.
Reading from several sources is a good thing to do. Glad to hear you do that.
Except I didn't say that. I am a man. I don't call women cunts. Because I'm not sexist.
How's a napping, an example of privelege? I remember I pulled an all-nighter for my computing labs, and then passed out on a hallway chair.
Saying all men are sexist because some men are sexist is plan and simple, no questions asked, irrefutably a sexist statement. 2/2
I think it's worse when POC college grads tell poor whites from broken homes they have privilege. The prescription drug epidemic is now 1/2.
The only people talking about how whites are the real victims are assholes like you upset that racism against them is getting called out.
I imagine the Romans being quite upset that the Christians appropriated the cross. Or not.
I grew up in HI and CA where white was the minority & my skin color did me no favors. White privilege is real but not all experience it.
This is just racism
I'd buy it. There's a reason you can't read a doctors handwriting, they are hiding their poor spelling and grammar.
Crucifixion was just Rome's way of telling a province "You have fucked up to an enormous degree, cut it out."
So many Ls up in there -- and not the good kinds, like the stroker LS3 or the iron block LSX.
What a cunt
Thanks for the searing junior high insight.
And when you call it out, you get disgusting & dismissive responses like "Oh those poor oppressed whites" as if anyone said theyre oppressed
lol no it's as real as global warming pal
Neil Degrasse Tyson. Wake up lazy arse wannabe’s and be somebody. Even if u got handouts it would never be enough unless u had motivation.
And that brother was named Albert Einstein. And then all of the Facebook algorithms stood up and applauded.
Worse than the crack epidemic of the 80s. Most poor whites now stay poor, it's crazy to say they have privilege.
So I am stuck with it? So I am being put down for something I have zero control over... kinda like my skin color. But fuck me for having it!

No one is saying your life can't be hard bc youre white, but it's not hard BECAUSE you're white. I'm going to guess you are white?
Somewhat similar for myself, but in retrospect I think it really started showing up earlier and I just didn't notice people were serious
Melissa needs to join Felicia! Bye Felicia....!!!!!
So that's where all my got dang does went
All regular folks can do about white privilege is be aware. Nothing to even feel guilty over.
White privilege proves time & time the reason why people say that. Stereotypes are there for a reason & blacks perpetuate it.
That's like calling a dude from Missouri an earthling
Sorry but this is fake
Never understand why people insult others and act condescending in an argument, It literally only damages your argument .
Well I don't. Which is my point.
when the jokes and comments started, as if I just didn't pick up on racism because at that point my mind just wouldn't have gone there
True, racists are as diverse as the people they hate.
The same reason there are rich black people. Just because you have one advantage or disadvantage doesn't negate the other factors.
She had to study and work hard to get there, everything else is irrelevant. There are only those who try and those who dont. No priviliges.
My dude that's a YouTube comment section, one of the most raunchiest edgiest places on the internet
These days it's the minorities that are the most racist.
Personally, I don't like to block people because then they think I'm a snowflake who can't handle their nasty opinions.
This is like every Twitter exchange, ever.

Twitter is worse. Much, much worse!
I didn't mean to fuck it afterwards, geez when are y'all gonna stop bringing up that stupid pigeon analogy
If there are any privileges associated with a below average IQ, my guess is Melissa is benefiting from those.
Who cares? Let them work their way into solitude. Its social darwinism.
It's...it's still there, though.
I hate being a white male. Everyone shits on me when I work for something.
But then they think they've won, and I can't stomach the image of them strutting with their confederate flags and spinny-hats and rompers.
I can't tell if I should upvote you or keep the balance between upvotes and downvotes
Well that's definitely not what white privilege is but ok
Not saying you're wrong, but did he say he didn't hire him because he was black or because he was "mean looking"?
Then it's not systemic. My issue is that there's no clear definition for what WP is or what systemic racism is or what they even do.
Well that's an awfully strange thing to guess when my username strongly implies I am not, but just to be clear I'm a nice medium brown, not
Yeah cause we all know that Google is the property of Steve Bannon. You got me. The hundreds of upvotes are meaningless too

If a slang term for female genitals is demeaning then it only logically follows that a slang term for male genitals would be the same
Nah, leave the comments up there for everyone to see how much of a bigoted cunt she is.
personally I am white and worry about getting shot, because some cops are trigger happy cunts.
But that's what so many people claim. That any success a white person has is due to the system that favors them, not due to their hard work.
The meanings of words come through history, context, usage, not whatever you assume must be the most logical definition.
Oh my! I was right! You are actually braindead! Holy fuck you need some help
The impression that I got was that my boss himself didn't think he was, but that he was worried the customers might. (1/?)
No it isn't.

Others would say it's because crack is illegal and finances drug dealers. Prescription drugs finance the medicinal industry
@EMBugReports there was a recent case of a black student getting the cops called on her for napping in the common area of her dorm at Yale
I myself never actually saw the guy, though. I just heard the story from my boss when he was telling me the story the next day. (2/?)
It's much less likely for minority-privilege to be systemic, or have wide-reaching effects. Just by pure population demographics =>
Wow melissa sounds pretty hawt
2)=> white people favoring white people is going to have more impact than black people favoring black people. So, aware is grand and =>
What a little shit. Why can’t you just be happy for her? Why you got to make everyone as unhappy as you are?
3)=> awareness leads to trying to ignore those biases.
My boss actually felt really conflicted and guilty about the whole thing, though, and ended up setting the dude up with a job elsewhere.(3/3

Lol, I knew it didn't sound right but Google seemed to back me up that what I wrote was a real word.
It could've been that, but race definitely played a part. That action itself may have been racist, but I don't think my boss was. (1/2)
I think he’s saying introspect would be a word they could have used instead of self-crit.

Have you been to an American University recently. There are even organizations that collect reparations from whites to pay back for slavery
These are both absolutely terrible people.

Boss told me he felt really conflicted and guilty about the whole thing, and ended up setting the guy up with a job at his friend's busines.
This is probably fake.
Then you're suggesting women need to be treated with kid gloves, different from men, that seems antithetical to feminist ideology

This could well be my literal reply to her comment. I have neither the time nor the patience for people like this.
buddy, have you even MET an emu?
Ohhhh daaaang, sitting in the dark, counting your money! Child & Adolescent Psychiatry here!
But I don't think you're arguing that some level of privilege exists, nor racism. So I think others are miscategorising your position.
thank you for taking the time to share all of these. very informative. I hope more people will read them.
I think the same goes for Melissa
You poor bastard!
Fuck that, time to hire someone to give Melissa a proper beating. Something her parents should've done, cuz she ain't raised right
Having spent time in court (states witness on a dragged out case) being polite and listening to the judge matters far more than anything
By teaching white people that black people hate them for their skin color, you're just perpetuating the cycle of racism.
2 white daughters of MDs in LA told me i was privileged because im a guy, i laughed
so it's black people's responsibility to teach white people not to be racist. The burden should be on them?
That person is trash and I don't know what race they are , nor does it matter.
When you let mentally ill people have the internet
No, it's on everyone to not actively encourage others to be racist to them. Being racist only encourages your targets to be racist back.
*white people smashes vase on floor of black people's home*
white person: "it is everyone's responsibility to fix this vase"
It's like trying to put out a fire by igniting the other side of the forest. Divides are deepened and unnecessary conflict is created.
The real shame is that you haven't unfriended Melissa.
Might be based off of Maoism's self-criticism: written or verbal statements detailing one's ideological errors.
I assure you, it is very real.
You spelled spelled wrong
Here's a more accurate version: white guy *smashes vase in black person's home and leaves* white guy's son: I'm sorry for my father, 1/?
Now where can we acquire these people....
Can we also point out that there are zero likes or reactions, also that this was only spanned over a 16 minute period. So I’m gonna call BS
i am waiting with bated fucking breath to see where this shit is going
Let's fix this vase and become friends. Black guy's first son: alright cool. Black guy's second son *smashes vase in white guy's son's house
Why do I get the feeling Mellisa is either a anti-vaxxer or a vegan or both.
White guy's son: what are you doing? Black guy's second son: fixing the vase your dad broke
this is insane. wow.

Ya exactly. I’ll take “Why I deleted Facebook” for 200, Alex.
People like that (and yes this is probably fake but still) seriously just need to fucking die.
Tbh, thats what it is 99% of the time. "The evil privileged white race is why I'm not a winner in life!" when they themselves never tried.
As a born-and-raised Christian, I read that as "Nathrezim" and I'm not even sorry.
If it's sexist for one it's sexist for another. Admittedly I'm probably in the minority but I don't see sexism, it's all equal. Instead of1/
Being "oppressed" or "offended" why not take it back. "Yeah I'm a cunt what's it to ya!?!" It's not about sexism the person was an asshole2/
What a nasty spirited person.
If it's a guy they're a dick, a girl they're a cunt. There's no historical context derived from that other than what you choose to perceive.
You're blaming an entire race for the actions of some of its people. If all white people are racist, then all the other racial stereotypes
AHHHHHHHHHHH!! SHE USED THAT FUCKING DISMISSIVE "UM OK SWEETIE" I FUCKING HATE THAT STUPID SHIT
I have a similar background and this pisses me off fucking damn much. I am as open minded as he rest but FUCK THOSE CUNTS!
Must be true as well. One of the reasons modern racism is bad is because it assumes that everyone with a certain skin color is the same.

But it's absolutely not being used as a term of endearment. It's being used in the sexist American way. Why are you guys so damn dishonest?
Wow. Reading this comment thread is extremely disheartening and makes me wonder about the white people I’m around on a daily basis
No, did not invent the historical context that makes cunta sexist word, and I can point you to dozens of sources proving that, all of which
you'll undoubtedly ignore.
"Ah, the lucky idiot with the new TV and nice stereo is leaving town with whole family for a one week vacation ..."
Melissa sounds like a brainwashed commie
I'd be happy to see them but I'd likely debate the sources and their bias and that would be a whole thing so is it really worth your time?
And I don't mean the historical context of the word I mean you interjecting that context into THIS situation where it wasn't warranted
If I can't assume "cunt' has sexist connotations when people are angrily yelling at a woman and also calling her a twat and a slag, when can
I assume sexist connotations?
I pulled that comment because in this case I don't think he meant it in a friendly way so I'll concede that
how ever, this is neither about minorities nor race. if there is a point it´s about classim. btw checks out sources: right wing shit
This. People take one sociology class or read one book on it and think they know everything.
Still does not answer the question what "the privileged" should "do about it". "Nah, give the job to the black woman instead"?
I think you're missing the point. They weren't calling her a cunt because she's a woman. Well they were, but because she's a shitty person1/
Who happens to be a woman. It's just a descriptor of the type of shitty person, same way a dickhead usually refers to a shitty male, but 2/
"They weren't calling him the 'n' word because he was black, they were calling him that because he's a shitty person!"
In situations where a crit failure results in self damage, can you crit yourself? I've never seen that play out but it sounds hilarious.
Dickhead just isn't an anti-male sexist insult, no matter how logical you think it seems that it should be. Language doesn't work like that.
I can't just say the 'n' word isn't offensive because it comes from the word for "black" and that's not offensive. Even if that seems like
it should totally be logical.
In my experience (as a black guy), race get's brought up FAR more often by other black people than by literally any other group of people.
Don't try to fight hate with hate. It only creates more hate.
Somehow THAT'S not sexist? I'm just calling out the hypocrisy of that situation. The claim of it being based on sexism I can't agree with3/3
Not sure if that holds true in other people's experiences, but I'd say that, often, minorities are the more "racially concerned" among us.
I knew that was gonna be a counterpoint. The problem with that is that word is specifically and only used as an insult based on race. 1/
Whereas cunt is an insult based on shitty behavior. If we're going down that road then gook, wetback, and cracker follow race and dick 2/
1)It's very obvious that people on here use the word in a sexist American way, then fall back on the Australia thing for plausible
Follows gender. You can't have it both ways. Either ALL are acceptable or none. I prefer not to be censored 3/3
2)deniability of their own sexism. It's not much different from the dog whistle strategy for plausible denial racism. The dishonesty bothers
me almost as much as the sexism, really.
I'm not gonna lie. It's almost like people act shitty behind the facade of anonymity... I'm see your point I just don't agree it applies 1/
Here. Looking to be offended like that is just disingenuous. If it was "get back in the kitchen cunt" I'd be the first to agree with you 2/2
If I was looking to be offended, I'd be calling out Aussies playfully using "cunt," but I don't. I only call it out in obvious cases like
this, but even in the most obvious of obvious cases, there's still a dozen people trying to argue with me.
Yeah dude, that's what SJW's are.
Mel sucks. You're amazing tho. Congrats on getting in. We need people like u to cure assholitis. This one's terminal. Pull the plug.
I'm a big believer in standing firm against the majority, but if everyone around you is saying your wrong, you might just be wrong.
It’s a modifier. Sure, it’s present, no denying that but it can certainly be outweighed by other facets in your life.
Or you just got caught up in an Internet hivemind. If a dozen people on r/The_Donald tell me I'm wrong about Trump, should I listen?
I wish I could upvote this so many more times...
Please don't upvote stupid people.
Melissa is a bitch. Thank God, being a bitch is an universal color.
So... it isn’t real? :)
I know they're not oppressed in USA as a whole, but individuals from their group do get hate directed at them for being white. Google it
SJW's are just complete assholes thinking theyre the good guys. Melissa can go fuck herself
Would entirely depend on what you said.
I'd like Melissa to move to my country and see what she says. Here are like, two other black people.
Hate that stupid clap emoji...using it doesn't make your point more valid it just makes you look dumb.....
Minorities usually are racist. Have you seen any lower class turks in germany?
Yeah but who tf cares what they say. You gotta do what’s good for you and your healthy mind. They can go suck it if they can’t handle it :)
Literally nothing negative about Trump is allowed there, not even the most respectful disagreement. But I think you get my point.
Friend tried to get a job at a Chinese place, dude at the register yelled "we no make hamburger here!" and told him to leave. No joke...
A subjective concept that can't be measured, and usually all it means is that someone is being treated decently or normally. If we want (1)
to help folks that don't experience that, we should draw them into the majority, not harangue the majority for functioning in a healthy way.
Would people believe me that racism isn't the problem, just a product of the real issue? People dumb, like really dumb. People exploit that.
Yeah, it's white-person virtue-signalling, and ego-protecting. "You may be succeeding, but I am holier than thou."
The real privilege is IQ. The smart, born poor, can rise to the top. The dull, born poor are generally fucked.
... unless they're female and pretty.
The left is cancer.
Are you sure about that?
If you like to laugh at the shit they say, they basically become joke factories. That's the way I look at it anyway
You should plant a few thousand trees to offset the waste of oxygen you are.
Ok, but also, "fuck 'em."
You care a lot about what those idiots think about you.

It'd have been EVEN WORSE if she was black, latino, wtv. Does that mean she doesn't deserve it? No. Does that mean she had it easy? Hell no!
Thank you kind sir/madam/Apache attach helicopter
Melissa is a cuntnoodle.
Unnecessary+tactless reply, no doubt. But white privilege here means that a poc in the exact same conditions would be less likely accepted
Every thing that comes out of your mouth or off of your keyboard is fucking retarded.
Yes, thanks. It was late when I wrote it
Clever bastard hahaa
I'm no victim. Just pointing out the hypocrisy.
Remember every white person ever. Nothing you accomplish matters.
did you just assume my critical modifier?
I don't usually scream fake but perfect story vs an asshole, there's no likes and the blanks seem a bit short to cover real names
Yes, that's the sort of thing folks seem to imagine when they hear the word "privilege," which isn't what "white privilege" is used to mean.
I feel like to a degree that's an important trait that often stops us from being insufferable.
Exactly! Especially on a public forum, just let them show themselves up.
"won't take responsibility for their kids"
It's more about inadvertently encouraging them to be an asshat.
You're objectively wrong, by the very definition of the words you're using. Racism is a prejudice based on race, you're attributing a 1/
modifier to the term. Systemic and institutionalized racism have an additional word attached to them because they are DIFFERENT
Flossing is easy when there’s only a few teeth
Being aware of my privilege means I know that my peers of other races have likely struggled in ways I never had to. Don't be "colorblind"
White people do, it just generally isn't systemic (though Zimbabwe was a thing, but meh) or institutional in nature. Academically and 1/
scholastically racism does not require an absolute element of privilege, and even law agrees. Your logic falls apart when a person of 2/

Oh shit, that's literally racism! You think it's fine though, because you stuck a word to another word and deluded yourself into 2/
believing that's what the original word means. Balls are all on fire because fireballs exist!
technically white people are the minority now a days.
And what is fixed by perpetuating "it's fine for that black guy to then go and smash the vase of a white person who didn't smash vases"?
Your individual experience clearly validated objective truth, right?
Someone else being biased to your type of race is not a privilege. That’s just that person being racist no matter the race of either person

That’s what I wondered too...self-criticism sounds a lot like some of the stuff I’ve read about under Mao (and Pol Pot in Cambodia).
How do we know the other person is a minority???
The people did not go away though.
Think they're beyond reason. The "fuck whitey (and anyone who doesn't share my views)" mentality is quite strong here
To be fair, I got away with some really bold shit as a kid because I knew that I was white and much less likely to get hassled.
Of course not! You just double the damage dice.
"self-crit" is the phrase they invented, to mean introspect, so they can then "teach" people how to be as woke as they are
According to imgur white people can't be
I think the idea is even if we didn't do it we still have the benefits from the bad things they have done if only indirectly.
I can see how you could think that. But it’s nearly verbatim to Pokémon confusion; only difference is gender neutral “itself”. +1 for D&D
They're brain dead and the only good thing that will ever come out of them is their organs after they die. Block em.

anyone who says "Umm Ok Sweetie .... buh bye" should be struck down by a lightning bolt immediately
You should learn a little about spelling and sentence structure if you want to be taken seriously.
The most vocal people I know concerning racism are minorities. White people can't voice their racism; minorities can.

Melissa sounds like a real cunt.
If you don't have crappy friends this doesn't happen as much. I enjoy my Facebook but that's because any one who does this gets deleted.
It's outclassed vastly by class privilege though.
Reminds me of rocket league salt
That makes sense to me. I think you're on to something here.
It is highly possible
But it's not, if you know it to.
Ahh, the message. Yes.
There was an INMED program for native americans who wanted to go to medical school. They had an agreement with the university to...
...admit X students (I don't know the exact number. Maybe 2 or 3?) per year. That year, they didn't have enough applicants, so every person
...who applied through INMED was admitted. Even grossly incompetent people. Fortunately, she dropped out during the first semester.
I’m sick of this bullshit. I’m a Hispanic female, the word you’re looking for here is “congratulations”
So she was never actually in medical school, but some pre-med program?
Nope, it was medical school. I met her while we were both doing our pre-med, and she just stopped showing up one day...
Then on the first day of medical school classes, there she was again.
Soo... What should I do about it then? I have white privilege. Cool. what now? And why would benefiting from it be bad but something like -/
nepotism isn't inherently bad. I mean, that is how I got my current job, though I still had to be able to do the job too. So I fail to see -
the problem in all of this.
Like catnip for white-trash racists...
I will have you know I am masturbating as I type this comment, thank you very much.
Please fwd Melissa the link to all our comments before blocking her xD and CONGRATULATIONS on all your hard work paying off! You got this!
I was about to point that out, myself...
Nope, but did get an offer to apply as I was finishing my doctorate up; I declined.
“Insufferable,” too extreme to bear. Their behavior IS insufferable. You’re just choosing to suffer on account of their ego.
But sincerely, good luck to you. I have zero tolerance putting up with nonsense like that in my life anymore. I’ve been far happier for it.
That’s because she’s retarded
OK, seems suspicious however plausible. Whomever crafted and enforced a policy allowing incompetence deserves dog turds in their pockets.
I'm going to try and buy a new hat this afternoon; if it is true I'll throw that in too.
The worst part is that when they say something like that they think they got in some sick burn on you
Does you 18 minutes ago hate you right now? I am also masturbating.
On behalf of pretty much everyone else in that class (including the INMED students who deserved to be there), absolutely.
I proudly browse Shadbase as a warmup. I refuse to take shame in the content of my bating!! FAP FREELY!!
I would say reflecting to see if they have a point is a good character trait, but if you decide for yourself their point is invalid then why

I think we’re basically agreeing. She’s still an ass, the poster worked really hard against bad odds. All I tried to show is that all of
those things can be true, and still this story doesn’t dismantle the theories of racism or privilege. Privilege isn’t an absolute: it’s
about odds. Having better odds doesn’t guarantee a better or worse roll of the dice, it just means you’re more or less likely
to have a favorable roll based on certain characteristics. The OP had favorable odds and got a shitty roll.
why do people feel the need to use facebook?

People of color can't be racist. Prejudiced yes, but not racist. Racism describes a system of advantage based on race. People of color (1)

I always downvote him whenever I see his name.
I wouldn't call it a stereotype. The biggest reason for the way kids, teens, and adults act is how their parents raised/treated 1/
them. My sister got her lip split by the child of a white woman who wasn't taking care of her child. Kid threw a metal cup at her. Now as 2/

Exactly, the dumbest members are the loudest and they usually don’t know how to back their argument without attacking the other side
If you’re going to use that logic, you have to admit most of the confederate soldiers weren’t fighting to keep slavery but to defend their
Homeland from the north. Most of the soldiers weren’t well enough to even own slaves. And so you can’t just dismiss everyone with a
Confederate flag as a racist who wants to reinstate slavery. The “south” is a nation in every sense of the word. It has a defined
Geographical region with its own customs and dialects and it takes offense whenever people from outside of its region and culture try and
Tell them how to live their lives.
I see. Maybe he identified as a white guy. lol jk
Racism exists. The very concept of WP is racist towards non-whites because it's known as "the soft bigotry of low expectations"
You do realize how condescending that is towards non-whites, right? Treat people as individuals, don't collectivize them by race.
So your claim is that everyone is racist in way that benefit their race,and white people are more common so the effect for whites is bigger?
"Neither the time nor the crayons to explain it to you"
I'm not sure how you're coming to that conclusion. You said earlier that non-whites use WP to be racists towards whites, but whites use it?
But you won't see that, so why care?
Anyone else read minotaurs ?
what a bitch! she just judged a person based on the colour of her skin people should point out how bigoted that shit is. she the real racist
being "woke" really doesn't make you woke apparently
Of course. There are tons of types of privilege. People need to stop getting pissy when they’re told they have it, and others need to stop..
Saying those with privilege didn’t work for it.
For schools? Maybe. Although less likely to get professor mentoring. Jobs on the other hand, shown that two identical resumes, other than-->
the name, will take about 10 resumes per interview for a stereotypical 'white' name, and 15 per interview for a stereotypical 'black' name
Do? Potentially nothing beyond acknowledging and being aware of it. Potentially something if you're in position to make an impact.
Mostly? Be aware of it. Don't fall into the cognitive trap of forgetting a little boost you have here and there and assume it makes you -->
-better than those who might be just as well off with you if they had the same leg-up.
Agreed. But to be fair, the self-victimization mentality in general is prevalent here, including from white people
Ok, I am aware of it. So what now?
Continue to make efforts at self awareness to avoid cognitive biases.
Also very true
Ok, done. Now what? What is the end goal here?
That's all there really is to it. Acknowledge and be aware of it. (Yes, people blow it out of proportion and misuse it, much like people-->
Melissa sounds like a salty person who can't succeed in life so they have to shit on everyone's parade
with self-diagnosed 'PTSD' that want you to avoid mentioning flowers because it reminds them of a minor embarrassment in high-school.)
Ok then. Case closed. I should never see it used to discredit white people again, right? Right?
1) Nah, people still gonna be people, especially on the internet. Some people will pretend it doesn't exist and that all it's effects
2) are as a result of genetic inferiority, some people will pretend it's existence means you need to kiss their feet or w/e.
And so does black privilege, male privilege, female privilege, asian privilege, etc. White privilegeis not really that different.
As a net whole in North America and a few similar areas? White Privilege is definitely stronger overall, going by the many studies.
So what? Nothing I or anyone can do about it.
As an individual? Not much. As a society? Sure can.
Also: Being blind to an advantage you have tends to lead to asshole behaviors thinking you're better than others. See: People born rich -->
-blaming the poor for being poor. Forgetting that it's possible to commit no mistakes and still lose, and your starting point matters.
And all this is leading nowhere. Everyone has privilege in different ways. That is never going to go away. Nor should anyone have to feel -/
bad for making use of those privilages to move up in the world.
Again. The recommended course of action by experts is not 'feel bad' it's 'be aware of it and use it in your opinions of self/others.'
99% of the people I know who went to Ivy League are minorities. I think foreigners place more importance on the "badge" of a top school.
But there are also very reasonable people here, so don't give up hope!
I never said otherwise, just for uni that's all
I hate this, too, because not only is it ridiculous to ask us to pay for what people did before we were born, but the further away in time
we get from it, the more people are descended from people who DIDN'T EVEN HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT. Example: My family wasn't even in
North America until the early 1900s. My ancestors were poor starving farmers over in Norway when slavery was occurring in the US.
Sure, but that's true of any individual person. The black girl I went to college with who has two parents who are doctors and never had a
day of hunger, compared to me where both parents were abusive and nearly killed me with neglect... There are infinite examples of
all sorts of people who have it "better than" in either direction. That being said, of course there have been historical privileges for
being white. But we shouldn't turn around and punish people for that, we should eliminate the negatives that other people experience for NOT
sharing the same skin tone.
No, I noticed the inherent bias. I read the article and perused the chart.
You are the one who jumped to conclusions...
Oh, I know. I don’t feel guilty. But it seems like sometimes people think I should, which seems strange
I get it. And yes, it is strange how they except us to pay for something that happened years ago. I assume it’s b/c they have nothing
Else going on in their lives.
1) Not what I said. Whites don't use WP, WP is what gets blamed for PoC's shortcomings. It holds whites to a higher standard than non-whites
2) Those who believe in it look down on PoC and them that they can't get anywhere because of WP holding them back
3) Whites who believe they have WP feel guilt and assume non-whites are "less fortunate" simply based on outer appearance
4) The concept of WP is condescending and racist. It holds whites to a higher standard and assumes non-whites can't reach that standard so
5) the bar has to be lowered for them because they're darker. It's a "oh you poor thing" concept.
6) I hate it because people are individuals & I won't value a person's experience over another purely based on the color of their skin. End
It's a troll Poe's Law in effect.
Each source of privilege is independent, with total relative privilege estimated from the sum of the components. 1/
In this case, the + privilege from being white (no race barrier) is offset by the - from poverty, - childhood abuse, - family support etc 2/
Overall, the person is much less privileged than an average Yale student, and less than a black student from a wealthy and stable family.
Alright. Take the MCAT and you'll get application offers from 20 schools regardless of your score
Completely agree everyone has a unique life with challenges u overcome them to reach ur goals instead of complaining and feeding the ego
I love it! Only get bitten very occasionally, and I have all my shots.
Seriously, fuck that cunt
I've gotten tons of racist crap thrown at me by other Asian people for being a "half-breed" (Japanese/Korean).
Lions should not concern themselves with the bleeting of sheep.
Ultimately, I don't like the idea or usage of WP & I totally agree about everyone being an individual with independent value. Cheers mate!
With all due respect, this topic is complicated and doesn't fit in these messages. D/M if you want to discuss it.
Melissa sounds entitled
But if it's effect is so negligible it doesn't matter, as in this example, where her white privilege afforded her nothing
Are people like Melissa for real? This is a valid question. I read so much about these people but never encounter them in real life...
I have yes, a few. Also not what white privilege is, and what some weird ass college kids do isn't a reflection of that definition
yes yes it is
