White Privilege is About Race, Not Class

White privilege, by itself, doesn't tell us anything one way or the other about class. 

Whiteness is still an advantage for poor white people, too.

Please defend that statement. Elaborate on how a poor white person in XXXXX County, in the mountains of Virginia or West Virginia - who like most of her cadre is living on a government check with no real prospects for employment, with no mass transit, surrounded by an embedded drug culture, living in a trailer which is most likely most likely mold infested, living in a place where the monopoly medical care industry is providing less and less from further and further away, and who has no interest groups attempting to protect her from the police or make her life better - is better off because she is white.
