If an African American woman and a white woman both are born in poverty and the black woman makes good yet simple life choices (i.e. graduate high school, don't have a baby out of wedlock, remain employed, etc.), then she'll make it out of poverty whereas if the white woman doesn't make these good choices, she'll end up in poverty. Her white skin won't save her from bad choices.
Saying that I became successful because of the color of my skin is insulting to all those who have helped get me here. I've learned many lessons throughout my life including from people who didn't know they were helping me become a better person; I just sat back, watched, and learned from them.
White privilege is just another way of playing victim. It's much easier for some people to blame someone else for where they are in life. Democrats tend to provide a safe space for these people. Instead of helping African Americans accept personal accountability and making changes in their lives which could truly help their economic mobility, they throw fuel on the fire to get them riled up. It's all about politics and not solutions. If it were about solutions then Democrat controlled cities wouldn't be in the terrible shape they're in.
