--study after study shows that whites commit far more crime, but blacks are disproportionately stopped, searched, arrested, and convicted of crimes compared to the white population.
--once convicted of a crime blacks are sentenced to far longer prison sentences compared to their white counterparts for the same exact crimes
--perhaps the worst of all...the way public schools are funded wholly benefits the white population. Funding schools based off of a persons address perpetuates the education crisis we have had for the past few decades. Rich, white suburbs receive far more federal and state funding for public schools compared to their poor, inner-city, and minority dominated counterparts.
Lending practices of private banks
--a whole host of studies shows how blacks are denied small business loans at an exponentially higher rate compared to whites who apply for small business loans. If they are lucky enough to get a loan, blacks consistently pay far higher interest rates compared to their white counterparts. The same goes for mortgages and every other type of lending banks do.
--I guess this can be a subset of law enforcement, but I feel it deserves its own category. Blacks use FEWER drugs than whites, but are arrested and convicted of drug crimes at a much higher rate. If a white is charged and convicted, they are far less likely to spend prison time and if they do it is far lower than that of black sentences.
Shall I go on?? I can do this all day long...
This is what we mean when we say there is a pervasive 'white privilege' in this country.
