White privilege is real and organised segregation very much exists to this day. I’ve worked in social services for six years and you absolutely see it every day. The way governments and organisations treat minority groups is still disgusting but most of us are blind to it because of this stupid “reverse racism” concept. Discrimination and exploitation of non whites exists where even you least expect it – you just need to look harder. My experiences are localised to my own country however.
That’s all I’m prepared to say on the matter.
“I’m not black, but theres a lot of times I wish I could say I’m not white.”
I don’t understand your question. It isn’t an idea–it’s a reality in the US. I can’t speak to the experience of white privilege in other countries.
As to what I think about it: it’s stupid to base opinions off of class, race, gender, sexual orientation, etc.
