White privilege (or white skin privilege) is a term for societal privileges that benefit white people in western countries beyond what is commonly experienced by the non-white people under the same social, political, or economic circumstance.
Look at that, "privileges that benefit white people in western countries".
So apparently according to this definition whites are not allowed to dominate their own territory, territory they've made for themselves. The West was created by Europeans (whites), so what unearned privilege are they talking about?
Is it ridiculous to think that in China, there exists Asian privilege and that in Africa there exists black privilege? Of course it's not ridiculous to think so, they don't want a white guy mixing into their society, this is why they have strict laws protecting those interests.
"White privilege functions differently in different places. A person's white skin will not be an asset to them in every conceivable place or situation. White people are also a global minority, and this fact affects the experiences they have outside of their home areas. Nevertheless, some people who use the term "white privilege" describe it as a worldwide phenomenon, resulting from the history of colonialism by white Western Europeans. One author argues that American white men are privileged almost everywhere in the world, even though many countries have never been colonized by Western Europeans."
NOTE THE BOLD: So the article confirms that even Whites WILL have experiences that will reflect their global minority status. In other words, whites will experience being under-privileged in areas "outside of their home areas" or discriminated against. Africa for Blacks, Asia for Asians and Middle East for middle-easterners. Europe for everybody.
This^ alone contradicts this entire phenomenon.
Lonnie Cole of Alabama, working in the mines, claimed to be 12 years old when asked, clearly he was a lot younger. 12 was the legal working age at the time.
Who were the true builders of America? the America that still stands today.
Coal miners making sure there's grub on the dinner-table every night.
This applies to also white.
