I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives, and etc etc:
- Marijuana use is similar among black and white populations in the U.S., but young African Americans are more than THREE TIMES more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession or use than white Americans.
- Even after accounting for reasons like education disparity, geographical distribution, and occupation, there is a persistent wage gap: White people make are paid more than African Americans due to racial discrimination.
White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.

♫ Music: The Beatnuts - On The 1+2 Hip Hop is alive & well, ladies n gents. Don’t let ANYONE tell you any different!! I had an AMAZING Saturday @HipHopKemp in the Czech Republic, where the culture was FULLY repped!! Shouts to the Barak team who made sure all styles of Hip Hop were catered for (Boom Bap to Turn Up n everywhere in between), It was a pleasure to spin for @TheDillonCooper once again and rock a bigger audience!! I also repped myself and my country during my set. Big up ALL the acts that rocked from international, to local, to legendary and up and coming… It’s shit like Kemp, Fresh Island, Boom Bap festival and a few others that really care about the culture, support them and we’ll continue to flourish!! #Blitztagram #SHORTEEBLITZ #djshit #clubshit #instagram #iphonegang #OnTheRoadAgain #hiphopkemp #Travelshit #ilovemyjob #onyx #blackmoon #actionbronson #pharcyde #dilloncooper #salute #hanginwithmrcooper #HipHopCulture
