Self praise is no praise at all buddies
It’s not white privilege. It’s every day that I wake up is a privilege yano what I mean

My PR agent (PNBrah) covered this perfectly.
White privilege is a lazy term used to suit an agenda while ignoring figures.
In percentage of population terms white people are least likely to go to university but they seem to want to look at total numbers and expect an equal outcome.
Yes there are very few ethnic minorities in the upper echelons of big business but there’s also very few lower or middle class white people as it’s a historic cabal at the top built from years of nepotism and who you know. Strangely enough in a historically white country this would mean most at the top would be white.
There’s far more white people living an unprivileged life in this country than any other race but for some reason pointing out the small percent and pretending it’s a rule for all is a popular narrative.
Before playing the vids I read this comment and genuinely thought it was a documemtary about @huntingground and his rags to riches tale, perhaps something of a Panorama special back in the day, Mickey with his porno tasche hitting the big time. Then I realised his name is Ken .
FWIW I did the doors with a black lad called Belema who's originally from London. He did the doors in Brixton before moving up North and he said 100% of the time, when there was trouble with groups of black lads (and it happened often) they would ALWAYS be carrying knives. He himself said it wasn't even a white problem he said it was the gangs of black lads who got refused entry (because they were in a gang, think he said it was no more than 2-3 lads in a group allowed in at a time) and they would always kick off and inevitably pull a knife or threaten with a knife or say they were coming back with knives to chop him up. The gangs of white lads who got refused might have give a bit of mouth but that was it. And he even said you didn't get many gangs of white lads in Brixton anyway lol.

I love this post and it sums up the situation perfectly.
I guess it goes as I said in the other thread, we all have differential opinions based on life experiences, and yours are certainly different to mine. Being born in Birkenhead in 73 is different to being born in London in 92.
I speak on white privilege in a way in which I personally feel to have more opportunity and more doors open, a higher chance of success than someone of another ethnic minority. Almost a head start. I’d assume that my interactions throughout life, and especially with the way the world is at the moment, has embedded this term and made me believe that I should be grateful for being a white male. Though, I do believe the term is subject to abuse and is used as a reason for failure, before failure.
Of course, life is what you make it and everyone can succeed in any aspect of life with the right attitudes/ethics, irregardless of their gender, age, sexual orientation, race etc.
How can u say that everyone’s opinions are based on individual life experience and talk about your personal opinion due to yours, then just lump a large group of people together and say they benefit from white privilege?
That makes zero Sense
