Seen too many threads devolve into shitstorms.

You're the one making it out to be more than it is. I've always hated excuses. I think babies born today all have the same advantage. What they become is probably a direct result of their surroundings. I just don't like the narrative of "White Privilege" because from the standpoint of being a Latino born in the United States, I can say that I have had great successes and opportunities in my life and it was all earned, not given.

Edit: And I'm not saying this to ignore the fact that yes there are certain factors out there like poverty and such that do put people at a disadvantage from birth.
