The notion of White Privilege has become a battle cry of the liberal left.  A generation of high-school and college students are being taught that a great number of “unearned privileges” accrue to white Americans, therefore, the charge of white privilege demands rational inquiry.
If the presence of White Privilege was true, then why are so many whites also in poverty?  Why is it that whites commit suicide at twice the rate of blacks (and at a higher rate than any other race in America except American Indians)?  According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, white men, who the Left argues are the most privileged group of all in America, commit seven out of every ten suicides in America — even though only three out of ten Americans are white males.
If White Privilege was true, wouldn’t more whites than blacks consider life worth living.  
The truth is, there are conditions that make life better for certain groups.  Having two parents in the household is one.  If you are raised by a father and mother, you enter adulthood with more privileges than anyone else in American society, irrespective of race, ethnicity, or sex. That’s why the poverty rate among two-parent black families is only 7 percent.  It is 22 percent in white single-parent homes.
If White Privilege exists, then how do you explain the success of Asians in American Society?  If the whites have all of the privileges, then shouldn’t they, too, as a minority, be stricken by the problem?  Asian Americans do better than white Americans in school, on IQ tests, on credit scores, and on other positive measures. In fact, according to recent data from the Federal Reserve, Asians are about to surpass whites as the wealthiest group of Americans.

How about opportunity for college?  Regardless of one’s grades and extra-curricular activities, one’s chances of being accepted into a prestigious college are considerably greater if one is a member of a non-white minority group … especially the black minority.

The claim of the presence of White Privilege has nothing to do with the truth, and everything to do with trying to portray blacks as victims.  This helps the hard left radicals in a number of ways, from continuing to ensure that blacks continue to view America as racist to the destruction of the idea that moral and cultural values determine the fate of the individual and of society.  You are a product of your morals, and choices, and your path is dependent upon those things.  It isn’t poverty that causes crime, it is a lack of moral self-control.

The black community may have all the privileges they want if they simply resurrected the family unit, and set aside government dependency, and the thug attitude.  And, that is what has been happening.  Some people are waking up, and black approval of Trump, according to Rasmussen, is over 40%, and the radicals are rioting and pulling out all the stops not because of racism, but because they have become desperate … it is the final lashing out of desperate scoundrels because, the truth is, Trump has been winning across the board … despite the attacks.
