    meant by "white privilege,"  it has nothing to do with socioeconomics and everything to do with being part of the predominant group.

    I grew up in Roseville California, which is in Placer County, and is very middle class to affluent.  There was a single two lane road that ran from Roseville into the quite swank Granite Bay.  There was a Doctor who owned a mercedes that was pulled over so many times on his way home to Granite Bay that he eventually got his back windows tinted.  Why was such a swank guy in such a nice car pulled over so many times?  Because he was black, or as my friends would say, Driving While Black (DWB).  This is not something that white people encounter because of white privilege.
