    Assuming White Privilege is a problem.
    How should White folks behave differently?

    To begin with: by acknowledging that white privilege is a problem rather than treating it as an 'assumption'.

    Take time to learn about what is going on for non-whites. A little here, a little there can go a long way.

    White people who are firmly enclosed in "white space" should find the inspiration to get out and explore something outside that space.

    ‘The Man of the Future will be a Mongrel’ this is the plan.

    I don't see how I should behave differently. I treat people as I would like to be treated regardless of their race or religion.

    Ok, after learning should Whites be behaving differently? How would a person who has step out of their White space behave different than one who has not?

    IOW, two White people standing side by side. Could you tell by their actions which had and which had not?

    Well, that's what I'm trying to find out. Let's sit aside the argument whether White privilege exists or what it is exactly. Now then going forward, what should be done about it? What behavior would need to be change so it is not a problem.

    Nah. I think an individual acknowledging the issues then being supportive of things like looking into police bias or economic disparities is doing a lot. The problem becomes those who hear things like "Black Lives Matter" and protest with "All Lives Matter."

    long long plan, create birth rate in UEurope, Japan, US and bring different than white people to fix it, create Obama (as archetype) types - no clear race, no clear country no clear sex orientation... another archetype recent Royal marriage.

    That's going on now with the number of intermarriages and mixed-race children at least in the US. That trend will continue.

    You're suggesting this is the Muslims' plan?

    For this discussion, it's acknowledged.
    I've been supportive of further training for police. There is human bias we all have. So we need to support the further education of our police to set aside any inherent bias they may feel when dealing with people. I'm all for that.

    To answer the OP, talk to people from other races and read what they write and try to understand their perspective. And also pay attention to the number of times a white cop shoots an innocent black in their own home etc.

    And a big part is to recognize the history where people have acted upon the belief that their tribe, race, religion etc was inherently superior to the "other" no matter how the "other" was classified.

    Done my part. :D
    My son tells me people question him about his race because they can't tell by looking at him.
