    A white guy playing Black Panther. Act less black. Say it loud, I’m white and I’m proud. Things like that would have you and your woke buddies flipping the fuck out. You’re a liar if you say otherwise. I’ll say it again, if it weren’t for double standards, the left would have no standards at all.

    It isn’t. It was made up by liberal professors on college campuses.

    It's a sociological phenomenon that is so simple to understand, even a conservative prof could figure it out. Look at it with some objectivity as opposed to just feeling attacked.

    Then you don't understand what white privilege is and therefore have no idea whether or not it exists.

    Is there something wrong with being poor? Are you poor shaming now?

    I understand what it is. I don’t buy the premise.

    It seems self evident to me, but YMMV.

    Then maybe you haven’t seen white people being beaten by white cops and then not treated fairly by the justice system and constantly stuck in the same vicious cycle that poor black people endure? OJ Simpson getting off for murder should be a hint.

    Then maybe try to look at it another way. Think of headwinds and tailwinds.

    Think about all the variables in your life that are headwinds (things you have no control over but are still a detriment to you), and think of all the variables in your life that are tailwinds (things you had no influence over, but are a help to you). You've mentioned previously that your family was able to pay for your college and you didn't need student loans. That would be a tailwind for you.

    Think about how the color of a person's skin might be a headwind - it's not in all cases and situations. But, can you accept that there is the possibility that in some situations the color of a person's skin might be a headwind?

    That one particular headwind/tailwind is one that you will never experience. That is what is meant by white privilege. It doesn't mean you don't have other headwinds, it just means the color of your skin will not hold you back in most cases. And, in some cases, it can be a tailwind - through no fault/influence of your own.

    Jay-Z and Beyoncé got to go to Cuba when most Americans weren’t allowed to, is that black privilege?

    No. They have tailwinds that you do not. They are both celebrities.

    Headwinds and tailwinds can be things you can control/influence and they can also be things you cannot control/influence.

    (It's a shame there isn't any good way of saying that in English. It's a quick, concise, non-vulgar way of saying a person doesn't have any idea whatsoever what they're talking about and as a result is just spouting nonsense.)

    If you're suggesting that one is within their control, but the other is none of your control, then you either inadvertently or intentionally skipped this part:

    You gave WAB a fucking punchline. Are you happy now? This is why WAB feels superior when it is not. You make it way to fucking easy for it.

    So what? WAB is useless. He wants to crack a joke, that's not funny anyway, at my expense I really could care less. I gave him a punchline, don't care.
