You lost all credibility days ago and are just looking stupid now. So many intelligent posters have pulled you up, yet you continue like a dog with a bone. Why carry this on ?

Feel free not to read it if it bothers you.

I did touch on this briefly in one of the posts about policing, but given the last 3 days and 10 pages have been spent talking with people who don't believe white privilege exists at all, I didn't think there was a lot of value in an in-depth discussion into the mechanics by which it propogates.

So you agree with my post them as this has nothing to do with policing and you go off on yet another tangent rather than properly respond.

I wonder why you “ bother” tbh. Pretty sure we all all know what your stance is, so why the circular crap

Murder is against the law. There are still murders.  

Stop conflating racists with systemic/institutional racism.

We all agree with you that there are racists.

Here is the post I was responding to, asking me for evidence of racism on the Island.

General question for people who believe in white privilege: do you believe in (for example) arab privilege or chinese privilege?

Assuming you're in Saudi or China respectively.

I've been in places where if there's no English menu outside the restaurant, I'm not welcome. And if I go in, I'll be asked to leave. Not legal in the UK (or the US AFAIK).

Fair point. I've been dipping in and out of the thread. My mistake.

Because people keep directing questions at me and I'm not rude.

For the record, I think there is white privilege. But of all the privilege accorded to the various populations in the world, "white privilege" is one of the most slight and western society deserves some credit for that (although capitalism also helps).

But, I will defend anyone's right to state they don't believe there is privilege.

Western society also deserves credit for freedom of speech. Or used to.

You’re finding it very hard to keep this act up anymore. But you’re persistent. I’ll grant you that.

HeliX is not the outlier.

He's been moderately posting here for a decade or more and is clearly a level headed and intelligent normal.

Well done to him for trying to find the right words.

Agreed, he does debate not tirade.

Appreciate the kind words, but I'm definitely guilty of the odd tirade.

I do try to be kind though.
