Privilege is not Even

: August 1, 2020

I thought of a good analogy to explain why I think white privilege is over stated. Because it’s not spread evenly (and what about the fact that many Whites at the top aren’t Gentiles).

Here’s the analogy. In general, maybe some phenom will change this, but if you take the top 5 100 meter dash people in the world, they’re all black. If you take the top 10 maybe one White person breaks into it. The 200 is a little more competitive, a White guy might be in the top 3.

But the point is, you take two random people off the street, a black person, and a white person, and neither of them are close to that top 10.

And it’s the same thing with economic position.
