QOTD - White Privilege

Up at CSU, Megan Burnett takes up the topic of "white privilege", pointing out that outcomes are usually based on individual effort more often than anything inherited.  At the same time, over at Theo Spark, there's this observation:

Sort of follows Robert Heinlein's description of "bad luck".

Of course rejecting a technology (Capitalism) because it was invented by white men seems rather silly to me but what do I know? Replacing it with another technology (Socialism) which was also invented by white men and comparing the results, it seems that not only do we white men have the solution to world poverty, we also hold the patents on the cause of most of it.
