    What if all significant levels of institutionalized racism and sexism were eliminated? Then some minority groups or women still fail to achieve social success at the same rate as white men. Perhaps cultural, physical, genetic, and psychological issues can also contribute to the disparity between sexes and races in society. *The social assertion is that discrimination is the only acceptable factor for non racists people discuss. The fear/frustration experiences by white men is their so-called "privilege" will become nothing more than a myth, but handicapping policies will persist. The result is a standard where white men are accused of benefiting from a social advantage while the opposite is true. The reality is that white men are overcoming an affirmative action handicap and still succeeding due to an evolutionary advantage. It is complete BS that we try to measure privilege according to the rate of success instead of tangible advantages. *

    -In modern day there are more racist minorities than than racist white people.
    -There is more institutionalized discrimination against white men than any other group.
    -White men continue to enjoy more social success because of inherent culture and traits.
    -Once institutionalized racism is eliminated then any sex/race that is able to exploit a evolutionary advantage should be permitted to do so. **

    What evolutionary advantage do you speak of? (I'm curious.)
    What traits/characteristics do white people inherently have as an advantage?

    Based on half this forum I'd argue that a superiority complex is starting to seem like a likely inherent trait.

    But a superiority complex isn't an evolutionary (selective) advantage.

    I think you mean it doesn't result in an equal outcome.

    If you got rid of the institutional discrimination and had equal opportunity then there would be equal opportunity which is what clever people want but not outcome which is what sjw's want.

    Here is a fine example of institutional discrimination
