Any privileges whites have, they've earned. Europeans carved out a highly sophisticated and progressive society, thanks in part to their many inventions. They've also been extremely generous in sharing this bounty with the Third World. Respect must be earned. What have those minorities done to earn it? I also have difficulty with the term 'WASP.' If a similar acronym was used to describe non whites, you can be sure it would be considered 'racist.' There's a disturbing double standard here.But again, this "unearned privilege" may be a misleading term. The "privileges" and respect that whites/men/WASPs enjoy should be enjoyed just as well by everyone including minorities, but too often they're not.
