    And I'm sorry, but if I wasn't a straight white male, I'd be finding it a LOT tougher to survive whilst 60k under. For a start, in countries that aren't predominantly white, I'd be homeless at the least, and possibly in jail in many others.
    Being fortunate enough to be born in a relatively prosperous country like the UK has nothing to do with the concept of straight white male privilege. There are plenty of predominantly white countries where you'd be immeasurably worse off too. I think you'd have a hard time selling your idea of racial privilege to the poor and indebted of most of the former Soviet states for example.

    Anybody born in a country such as the UK or US has a privileged position over most of the world, regardless of skin colour. It's a seperate issue entirely.
