What makes him stand out is that he uses cultural references to make observations about the world. "If you watch x" or "if you listen to y" - that's the sort of philosophy we need, because it is our culture that makes us who we are, not mindlessly dull rational "studies".
I'm uneasy with the concept of "white" privilege alone. I don't doubt it exists, but the fact is that privilege will occur in any hierarchy, and all countries have hierarchies of some sort.
There's no doubt that in a society whose hierarchy is dominated by one particular racial group that has a certain uniformity to it in terms of language, culture and way of life, the idea of "privilege" will occur. This happens in the USA, it happens in China and I suspect it happens everywhere else where these things are apparent. Societies organise themselves in certain ways and when there are cultures that are distinct and to a certain extent separate, then there's going to be an element of conflict.
The Byzantine Empire lasted one thousand years and had what would be considered a very multi-cultural demographic, particularly with regard to its Emperors, indicating that this sort of hierarchical structure we have today based on race is maybe a somewhat new thing. They referred to themselves as "Armenian" or whatever, but there was a sort of supra-ethnic identity that everyone aspired to - being "Roman". This was despite them all speaking Greek rather than Latin.
So what exactly are you uneasy about?
The fact that privilege of the dominant culture is something that happens in most societies does not make it any less true that white people are privileged in western cultures.
There will likely always be behaviour of a racist nature, sometimes with tragic outcome, but that behaviour is more likely to be challenged and called out, not just by ‘virtue-signalling SJWs’, but by ‘ordinary’ people too.
Things may not be moving fast enough, but we are talking about behaviour patterns established over millennia.
I think social media is accelerating the process. Everyone has a voice now, and positive messages are encouraged and reinforced (via ‘likes’ etc). Facebook etc becomes a surrogate moral compass.
