Does white privilege exist?

I should add that I'm as white as the new fallen snow and had cops draw weapons on me twice before I was old enough to legally drink a beer. 

And if you were black, they might have just blown your fuging brains out.

White Privilege is being so detached from violence at the hands of the state that you applaud it.

I've talked my way out of some sh!t. was it because I was I was white? or because I showed respect and didn't want to be arrested?

Philando Castile also showed respect and calmness, yet look where he is now.

I still can't blame cops, as much as others want to. Some people just can't treat people like people, so probably shouldn't be a cop.

sure. whiteness doesn't mean you are privileged, it means the obstacles you face will never be related to your skin color, whereas that's not the case for people of color. super simple 

I think this is a very simple yet spot on take.  At a macro level  I think it starts to dissipate as we have more cross pollination of races.  I've seen it quite a bit in workplaces over the past 15-20 years so from that standpoint there is room for optimism. 

But I think there are still huge chasms when it comes to inner city policing. Hard to console a grieving mom with the macro level bull poo above in my first paragraph.

Yes.  White privilege is about having college courses devoted to how evil you are for being born with white skin.

It's about a college here or there deciding to have a day without white people... so they essentially ban all white people from campus  for a day.  And if a honky decided to stay... then they reserve the right to be beaten and their family threatened. 

After the Dallas ambush,  white privilege is about Hillary Rodham Clinton sending out a presser that basically just tells white people to have patience.  

White privilege is about random white people getting beat and hunted in urban landscapes anytime there is a riot about a cop killing a black guy...   and no msm or politicians giving a poo. 

White privilege is about being kidnapped and tortured for 36 hours as your captors scream poo about trump at you.  As your captors make it clear they only targeted you because you are white. 

Lot of white privilege out there.
