What does the term White privilege mean? That every white person does not have to work hard and they will be giving a house and given a good job.

It's just the idea that white people will never have anything bad happen to them because they are white (but obviously can have bad things otherwise).

To be honest there’s some sort of privilege for the most common race/tribe in every country.

The fact that you even ask that questions reveals your huge cis privilege. Stop being so transhphobic loser.
So many meaningless words.

Imo it’s an idea that yes everyone will find things hard in life, but the colour of their skin isn’t one of the factors making it that much harder than it already is

Hero. At least he wasn't responsible for any deaths.

I don't disagree, but he did also have some very questionable views.

How far exactly do you wish to take things, should any statue's or memorials to him be torn down or was his racism acceptable?

White privilege is a total myth. There is only rich people privilege.

No, Max you're misinformed. White privilege illustrates the society that had been shaped to disadvantage people of colour. It doesn't mean white individuals won't have anything 'bad happen to them'. They do have bad things happen to them, however, it means their skin colour doesn't have to be part of those problems.

Studies conducted all over the world from world-leading research universities have confirmed society's bias towards white individuals over an individual of colour. One of the professors from Oxford University found that Black, Asian, and Minority ethnic have to apply 60% more times than a white person of similar qualifications and experience to have a successful response to an interview. The professor concluded the job market had not changed since the 1960s.

Other studies conducted by Harvard have shown Black people are 8 times more likely to be stopped by Police than a white person. When they compared deaths caused by Police, they found that armed white males had the same amount of deaths as unarmed black males.
Other studies show that Black and White people drug use in the US to be equal, however, Police are again 8x more likely to arrest Black people for it.

These are just a few examples of white privilege. Others include sentencing, being racially profiled etc etc

Having travelled around Africa, Middle-east, Latin America and around Europe, it was quite common that locals were more welcoming towards white individuals than they were to my BAME friends. Even law enforcements in African countries were really friendly towards me but expressing their megalomania towards the locals.
It's even worse in the Middle-East, especially Saudi Arabia where they treat BAME like garbage but as soon as someone mentions they're an EU citizen, Canadian, American, Australian etc law enforcements shrivel up and apologise.

I'm lucky to have travelled around the world because it has really opened my eyes.

That's exactly what I said...Basically your race/skin colour doesn't play a part in your misfortunes...I didn't dispute how races are treated.

It's like if a white well-dressed girl leaves a shop and the alarm goes off, then maybe the security waive her though and blame it on the alarm or politely ask if they can look in her bag. But if it's a black guy with a hoodie on, then it's a different story...as we have seen recently in the news. Authority treat black men very differently, very badly.
