Thanks for such a well written piece. These concepts are generally what we mean when we talk about White Privilege, but you do a great job of focusing the attention on how this is structurally generated and perpetuated. Too often folks get stymied when the word "privilege" gets used,so focusing on how white people are conditioned helps get around that challenge to understanding.
