    Who coined the phrase, "White Privilege?"

    Where did it come from?  And why are we hearing about it so much now?

    There are many sociological, political, historical, & other observers who strongly maintain that Caucasians have advantages that non-Caucasians don't have in terms of education, health/medical care, housing, socioeconomic & related advantages because of their dominance in society.  Caucasians oftentimes set the tone as cultural & religious influences in societies which non-Caucasians follow, even emulate.

    Caucasians in societies are oftentimes at the top of the pecking order by virtue of their complexion.  Even in this era of racial plurality, Caucasians have it much easier in terms of educational & socioeconomic opportunities than non-Caucasians.  Caucasians still determine the parameters of what it is acceptable or not.  For example, among non-Caucasians, it is the more Caucasian looking who are considered non-threatening hence they are granted access to upward mobility & success in ways that their more ethnic looking counterparts are not. 

    Caucasians determine the rules of a society as to whom will or will not get in or succeed.  Yes, non-Caucasians are succeeding but in numbers  that are not so deemed so threatening to Caucasians.  Caucasians still have the dominant power in societies.  Non-Caucasians know that there is Caucasian privilege; however, some are resigned to the fact & feel that this cannot be changed.  Others work around it while there are some who are vehemently vocal regarding Caucasian privilege & are taking steps to change the situation to have more inclusivity for both Caucasians & non-Caucasians alike.

    I really don't know, and I haven't seen it as an issue.
