DAILYKENN.com -- The white-privilege myth may be believed by gullible black Americans, but white folk simply aren't buying it.
That's the conclusion of Stanford University’s L. Taylor Phillips and Brian S. Lowery.
The researchers published the results of their study in November’s Journal of Experimental Social Psychology.
The media, of course, continue to pretend that whites have an unfair advantage because of their fair skin. The media also contends that race is a social construct. The fact that the two concepts are divergent doesn't dissuade the media from propagating the myths.
• To our knowledge the researchers failed to note the East Asian households are more privileged than white households on an average when measured by income.
The researchers also failed to address the economic depravity black Americans would suffer were it not for white innovation and ingenuity, a concept DailyKenn.com describes as "black privilege."
• White privilege, in our opinion, was concocted by the predatory left to counter the fact that blacks are given privileged status in such matters as hiring and enrollment in educational institutions.
• The only metric important to cultural and economic Marxism is the income disparity between blacks and whites. They're not concerned with the disparity between black Americans and black Africans, they never mention the disparity between black Americans today and that of the past, and they never consider the desperate poverty suffered by black Africans for millenia prior to influx of white innovation. Such comparisons would render a conclusion that black Americans are the most privileged people on earth.

White people are quick to cite personal hardships instead of acknowledging that they are privileged because of their skin color, according to a new study.
Stanford University’s L. Taylor Phillips and Brian S. Lowery, writing in November’s Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, split test subjects into two groups — with one given more evidence of white privilege in American culture.
Those given more information about privilege cited greater examples of personal hardship than the control group, according to the researchers.
“Whites may claim increased hardships to maintain not only a positive sense of self, but also the material benefits associated with racial privilege. Whites’ claims of hardship might also serve to legitimize the racial advantages they enjoy, and thereby justify a system that benefits their group,” the researchers wrote.
Citing personal struggles helped test subjects acknowledge white privilege — while rationalizing that they’re not directly gaining from it, the study said.
As a remedy, the researchers suggest “privilege reduction efforts” focus on convincing or educating advantaged group members about privilege, and also on “reducing the feelings of self-threat this information induces.”
