The thing about privilege is that it now works two ways. White's are "overprivelaged" yet it is now harder for a white male to get into more prestigious colleges and receive scholarships even when their accomplishments are greater perhaps than ethnic or female counterparts. The problem with the system we have is that if everything was based on achievement and what one has accomplished, everything would be hunky dory. Unfortunately, racism now swings in all directions, so everyone can be happy :/
In actuality there are only 4% of scholarships directed based on minority status. As far as it being “harder” for white male, that would be incorrect because we live in such a racialized social structure that even students fundamental schools are being racializly subjective based on their socio-economic status. Public schools get money based on their surroundings & because Realtors practice racial steering TO THIS DAY minorities are typically grouped together in communities causing “White Flight” which brings property values down. Leaving schools in that area with little funding &poor teaching practices due to little to no materials available included updated books. America’s complete being is so racialized that when problems ensue Scapegoating tends to played off on race, religion or/& gender never the people in charge of course.
“People are always talking about how hard it is to find a good man, but nowadays it’s hard to even find a good person. It’s so hard to just even find a person to talk to; someone who will just listen & not judge, someone who will just take you as you are.”—
