What will the Jews ever know about the struggles of Christians?
As long as we're asking rhetorical questions, why does the White Privilege label discriminate horrifically against poor whites who will never know the “white privilege” they are told that they benefit from?
Exactly, even poor whites have no real representation or understanding in the courts as the white privileged interpret the laws according to their understanding of their world and rigidly apply the law without taking into account changing or extenuating circumstances/societal changes.
From Oliver Twist - when the judge explains to Mr. Bumble that it is expected that his wife acts under his direction:
"If the law supposes that," said Mr. Bumble, squeezing his hat emphatically in both hands, "the law is a ass — a idiot. If that's the eye of the law, the law is a bachelor; and the worst I wish the law is, that his eye may be opened by experience — by experience."
Here's an interesting study:
"Our main results are generally consistent with theories that assume own-race bias.
We find own-race bias in nine of the 12 cases examined (three outcomes, four race
groups). But we also find anomalies in this pattern, and interestingly these anomalies
are all consistent with status and social identity theories. Such theories suggest that
racial differences may evoke different responses in norm-breaking relationships (mi-
norities managing whites, for example) than in relationships that conform to tradi-
tional hierarchies. These theories could thus explain two of our most striking find-
ings. First, when white employees work under other-race managers, they have similar
or even better outcomes than when they work under white managers. But second,
despite this preferential treatment, white employees still appear to harbor the stron-
gest bias against other-race managers".
