The stereotyping needs to fucking stop.

All this "white priviledge" crap also needs to stop. It's taken folks many years to work up to what they have, and saying it's all "white privelege" diminishes what they ACTAULLY EARNED / ACCOMPLISHED.

Which is also bullshit.

I can't fathom the amount of wrong in your post:

1) No one ever says "all white males are neo-nazis." If you're hearing this, you need to listen more carefully. It's not what's being said, but it's what so many hear. This is why it's frequently said that white males are fragile - because so many of us hear a criticism and put the word "all" in front of it. I can separate myself from the complaints, most of which have a lot of validity

2) No one is taking away your accomplishments (though, frankly, the more likely one is to whine about the term "white privilege," the less likely it seems they've accomplished anything.)
Perhaps we've had this discussion before, but it's like an RPG. If you role a 100 in whiteness but a 1 in everything else, you're going to have a bad time and achieving things is an accomplishment. But if you role a 1 in whiteness, your time will be even worse. There are absolutely plenty of blue-text options for having a high whiteness score. It doesn't make the game easy, but it makes many situations easier.

You are being overly sensitive about this and not thinking clearly or rationally about it. And you probably won't to this feedback, either, but once you trot out the "all" argument, you should recognize that you're leading with your emotions, not your rational side.

Music for the discerning:
