Sure, there are some benefits to being white.
There are also benefits to being attractive.
There are benefits to being athletically talented.
There are benefits to being smart.
Do we make these people wear buttons to "acknowledge their privilege?
Should we make the attractive wear masks? The athletically gifted where ankle weights? The smart listen to the Carpenters while taking tests?
What exactly are we trying to achieve by having white's acknowledge their privilege? Especially those that are unattractive, uncoordinated and unintelligent?
That is an interesting point. Even among blacks, it's well documented that the local black college football hero gets treated much better than his non athlete brothers. Especially if he gets in trouble.
And attractive people are treated differently.....it's even been shown that tall men are better compensated at work than short men.
So in that sense discrimination is everywhere.
I don't think it should be accepted and nobody deserves it, but to make an argument that it's strictly a white thing is simplistic. I do think minorities of color do still face some deeply rooted challenges, but social change takes generations. And unless you've taken advantage of the opportunities you do have it's disingenuous to cry racism over your life not being what you want.
Approaching this from the perspective of privilege is problematic, IMO, because often the ones who supposedly have this privilege don't feel like they do. They face many of the same challenges as everyone else, so they wonder where is this privilege? Because they don't realize how much worse it could be.
So let's focus on injustice where it exists.
I'd bet one of the most discriminated against groups is people these days is fat people.....ironic really because most of the US is fat to some degree.
