    While the decisive power over the economy is head by the very rich (most white men) males are privileged in the society as are whites relative to Peoples of Color.

      and we line up for what's left.

      True the working class white men are the first in line for the little bit of skimmed milk that the Boss leaves us.

      But as a Socialist, I don't call it "privilege" to be at the head of the line when the crap is handed out. I call that institutionalized racism and sexism.

      The word "privilege" I save strictly for the Ruling Class.
