white privelage doesn't exist so much as it is racial profiling. i can go on about this, but i'll leave this here:
of course this is an extreme case, but you get the jist. and not every cop is like that, obviously as seen here:
the point being that while i don't think white privelage exists in the context of whites benefiting, it's more so that other races, like blacks are being still profiled and stereotyped. whether it's conscious or subconscious is up for debate. i mean even look at the rooney rule in the nfl. says that when a new position opens for head coach, at least 1 minority has to be interviewed. while it helps get their foot in the door, we haven't seen more minority coaches in the nfl. and even in most cases, it has worked the opposite. hue jackson, the new coach of the browns just got his 2nd gig after being fired 8 years ago from the raiders after only working for 2 years right after the jamarcus russell era (the biggest bust in nfl history). meanwhile, chip kelly, who many have claimed to be a racist, and set the eagles back to the stone age got his next gig a long grueling week after being fired unserimoniously with the 49ers. or the fact that somehow, ron rivera, as of last year, became the 1st hispanic head coach in the nfl... it only took almost 50 years... and we still haven't seen an Asian coach to be found1

Well white people do happen to get away with crimes they commit and if they don't get away with it they aren't shot down and killed... Just saying.
Like that kid that was wanted by the police he stole the car and drove off to Mexico did the cops do a high speed chase and shoot the car and cut him off every angel? No and then to make it worse his parents had the nerve to say he doesn't know right from as an excuse.
Amd then all of the cops that keep pulling the trigger or even if they aren't shooting they're being too aggressive and they're still getting away with it like the cop that continued to keep that black man in a chokehold when he clearly said he couldn't breathe. Or the cop that flipped the girl and the desk over just because she wouldn't give up her phone when he could've handled that better. Or how about the cop that pent a girl down to the ground hurting her because some racist people called the cops complaining when she was invited to the party and it wasn't even there party and they were just guest.
Do white people have provileges? Yes they do but I can't even say anything because although I'm black I have privileges to beciase I'm "light skinned". Women have privlages becuase of their body/appearance. Men have privlages becuase they're men/dominat. It's just the way things work 😕0
