just because you don't feel that you have experienced it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
it most certainly does, and i can't imagine someone who is not a total recluse NOT seeing it.

Thank you for your support!
Hi Chris!
Or is this just a "triggered" snowflake Meltdown?

It was a singles bar, a Tuesday night
The moon was dim, the band was tight
They did the bump together
What a splendid sight
Her teeth were white
(Oo-ah oo-oooh)
The drinks were cheap (it was ladies' night)
He was glad that he met her
She was an office girl (my name was Stephy)
Her fav'rite group was Flo and Eddie
(They discussed the weather)
Honey honey, hey
Baby don't you want a man like me
Honey honey, hey
Baby don't you want a man like me
Honey honey, hey
Baby don't you want a-
Baby don't you want a-
Baby don't you want a man
She was a lonely sort, just a little too short
Her jokes were dumb and her fav'rite sport
Was hockey (in the winter)
He was duly impressed and was quick to suggest
Any sport with a puck had to be 'bout the best
As he jabbed his elbow in her (get it honey? Get it?)
Later on they went off to where the music was soft
The candles were drippy, they saw a real hippie
Who delivered their dinner
The rice was brown, and soon they found
That the crowd around that had jammed the room
Well it seemed to be getting thinner
Honey, honey, hey
Baby don't you want a man like me
Honey, honey, hey
Baby don't you want a man like me
Honey honey, hey
Baby don't you want a-
Baby don't you want a-
Baby don't you want a man
He took her home to a motor court
She would not kiss him, he tried to ignore it
But it made him angry
Angry. It made me angry
Why it made me so angry
I could have killed that louse bitch
He called her a slut (slut, slut, slut)
A pig (pig, pig, pig)
And a whore (whore, whore, whore)
A bitch (bitch, bitch, bitch)
And a cunt (cunt, cunt, cunt)
And she slammed the door (the door)
In a petulant frenzy
A petulant frenzy
This is a petulant frenzy
I'm petulant
And I'm having a frenzy
On the sofa she weeps
BOO HOO HOO HOO
She weeps and she weeps
BOO HOO HOO HOO HOO HOO
She weeps and she peeps
Through the curtain
He just got in his car
But the battery's dead
So he asked to use the phone
And she gives him some head
And that's the end of the story

There is a definitive disconnect between whites and many obstacles that blacks face getting educated and job experience, if a inner city black is up for a job against you and you both have equivalent scores, training , what ever...they have already out performed you to get there and therefore are more qualified... :idea:

I take you at your word but that's not what the term refers to. It's a shit term, very misleading. Sounds like just because I'm a white dude, I get the best seat at the restaurant, a big fat cheque deposited in my account every month for doing absolutely nothing and any job I wish to have. I don't and neither do you. But there are somethings I don't get or have to worry about. While driving my car, I'm not pulled over and then I worry if I make a perceived wrong move, I get shot and killed. I don't get choked out for selling singletons, I don't get murdered for passing a counterfeit $20, I don't get shot for walking home drinking iced tea and eating skittles. Not a privilege but I can see how someone might think it's a privilege.
