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.
