1. when black americans invent it, [white americans] initially detest it, mock it, claim it is destroying american youth and proper sensibilities

3. obscure its origins and repackage it in such a way that the next generation understands it as a product of white american excellence

White privilege is the luxury of kissing your husband in public without being handcuffed by the LAPD for being a prostitute.
Daniele Watts, an African-American actress who has starred in Hollywood films such as Django Unchained, has claimed she was “handcuffed and detained” by Los Angeles police officers after being mistaken for a prostitute.
Two police officers approached Watts and her white husband Brian James Lucas when they were seen showing affection in public, the actress said in a Facebook post
Of course this white man couldn’t possibly be married to the Black woman he’s kissing. Black women are for secret trysts and sexual fetishization. It’s 2014, but if you think that perception has changed very much from the days of massa taking one of his slaves by the willow tree you haven’t been paying attention.
