Outside of the USA, and even inside, white privilege is misunderstood by many.
White privilege isn’t economic. Example:
If I get a shave and a haircut, pick up a second hand, brand name suit, learn the right walk and talk and get my script ready, there’s almost no barriers for me in the USA.
Fake name and fake biography and I can go even further.
It’s a white privilege because if I was olive or brown skinned, walls would go up.
If I’m pulled over by US cops, how I look gives me an instant advantage.
So while it may or may not be true in other places, white privilege is 100% true in the USA.
That’s why there are EXPLICIT programs to assist those without white privilege: US racism is implicit.
