White privilege doesn't exist because whites didn't ask to be born white???????????

That's like saying a bank robber can not be tried and convicted, because he didn't ask to be born a bank robber.

Not all white people are racists and not all white people are bank robbers.  The concept of white privilege begs the question, Isn't it strange all the better parts of life--money, education, housing, paychecks and living in general--happen to land disproportionately on the white side of the fence?

You don't have to personify it.  It just exists as a function of history.  Blacks were born into slavery; whites were often born with a silver spoon.

Even if the slaves were freed, they still carry the stigma of inferior people.  So it's not always cash-on-hand; it's more a matter of who are your friends, and who are those "other guys"?

It's also called institutional racism.

Even if the slaves were freed, they still carry the stigma of lesser people.  So it's not always cash-on-hand; it's more a matter of who are your friends, and who are those "other guys"?

1. Nothing like your absurd what aboutism with a bank robber, unless you think being born with fair skin is criminal. Nobody asked to be who they are, they simple are who they are.

2, Assigning a blanket statement onto people through a racial lens, is inherantly racist. As its claiming all white people have the same privileges which is most definately not true. In fact in this country now white boys from poor backgrounds are performing the worst schools. Whilst some people have levels of privilege. To blanket cast this onto people through skin colour, is basically racist in thinking and no person making this claim, would make such a poor statement in regards to people of darker skin. 

3. In fact far more white people in history have been born into slavery. That is a fact, going back thousands of years. The Celts, Romans, Germanic tribes, Greeks, Arabs, etc kept many white people as slaves. You are going off on a small part of that history, due to that part being a later part and more recent. Even at the time of the African slave trade. Even up to the beginning of the 20th century, 90% of the populace of western nations lived in abject poverty and apalling conditions. . So to say they were born with a silver spoon, shows yet again your poor knowledge of history

4. So do many people carry stigmas, even if they are white. For example the Irish were treated appalling for centuries and views as subhuman, thick etc. The Jews, well centuries of hate in so many countries and times in history which still exists today. Hence the view to claim white privilige is essentially racist in thinking
