White privilege goes beyond individual circumstances. While it is true that white people can suffer from poverty and police violence, they still enjoy certain privileges in a way that other races do not, and these do not detract from their individual economic circumstances.
For example, a white person of every economic class can turn on a television and see their race widely represented, they can buy band-aids that match their skin tone, their children can play with toys and dolls that feature their race, and they don’t see their culture hanging in stores as a Halloween costume. These are all egregious examples of white privilege that have nothing to do with an individual’s circumstances.
Also, white privilege is not distributed evenly. It is possible that white privilege exists but some white communities benefit from it more than others. Gypsy and traveller communities in England, for example, are an example of a white demographic that has white privilege, but do not have privileged lives and are excluded of many of the benefits white privilege affords.
