    White privilege, like any social phenomenon, is complex. In a white supremacist culture, all white people have privilege, whether or not they admit to it. The thing is that they don't see how they benefit from being white. These privilege plays out differently depending on context and other aspects of one's identity,for example a white male.

    Peace!
