“Until 1962, out of 120 billion dollars of government backed home loans, less than 2% went to non-white households. In Northern California, between the war and 1960, of 350 thousand federally guaranteed new home loans, less than 100 went to black families.” —

And so explains one of the deep aspects of white privilege. Living in a  country that laid the foundation that gives you more of a chance to come from a family that has financial stability, property and investments. These systematic top down acts directly lead to current levels of income inequality & concentrated poverty. DIRECTLY.

But yeah no, it’s all about bootstrap pulling.
