My previous post was simply the video of Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly arguing the question of the existence of "white privilege".

This article is a followup to what is described as an "epic standoff" about the lingering effects and impact of race and racism in contemporary American society and culture, which manifests in what has been termed "white privilege":

Please read "This is what the legacy of 'white privilege' looks like in Bill O'Reilly 's home town" by Emily Badger of the Washington Post:

I have written that the passive notion of having an advantage is distingishable from the active notion of taking advantage.

A significant element of white privilege is denial of the existence of the advantage of being white, and, conversely, the disadvantage of being black.

White privilege often consists of the denial of having an advantage, while simultaneously taking advantage of that which purportedly doesn't exist....

The article cited here lends further credence to the idea that America, by definition, has been the white man's head start, affirmative action, and entitlement program from day one.
