    It's one of those words that when I was growing up I thought it applied to Rich and famous kids......But now used by any with a political cause/position to label and fling guilt on to others.
    Does this word annoy you? Do you not even give it a second thought? Do you agree with it's use?

    .......or is it just a 'First world' stupid non issue?

    Personally,Sick of it being used as some type of guilt tool for those with an agenda.Enough.

    Yes, I'm privileged. No, I'm not ashamed or the least bit guilty about it. Fuck you, if you think I'm going to surrender one bit of my privilege without a fight.

    Black people just want to be able to go into any department store and not be profiled, because as we all know, when white people enter a department store they automatically shut off all security cameras and the staff goes on break. :rolleyes:

    People calling other people "Privileged" is a simple way to sort out the losers.

    I don't know what the word means. I was raised by a single mom who got minimal child support and we lived in a small apartment in Brooklyn. I went to public school, my mom worked and saved money for college for me with some help from my grandparents. I stayed in school, never touched illegal drugs, respected authority, never got in trouble, and graduated from a good University.
    I now own my own home and have been working since I'm 13 years old. I'm white, straight, and Catholic. If all that I have had in my life means I'm privileged, then I'm proud to be privileged.

    Grew up in poverty,alcoholic family in a shit hole neighborhood and harassed by cops every weekend. I feel privileged every day that I wake up on US soil. Faggots Like Kaepernick can go fuck themselves maybe move to North Korea...


    I do agree that many black people are mistreated, but I comes down to a "class" thing not so much a color thing. We can argue how they got that way and I'll say sure as shit agree our forefathers put them there... But they are not helping the cause, by abandoning their families,stealing, dealing drugs and slaughtering each other.

    Yeah, if white people were profiled like black people there would be just as many white criminals as black ones. Whites ignore other white people's crimes.
