Africans also report being vulnerable to sudden evictions and being harassed for rent money even when it’s not due.The Dutch man’s white privilege makes him more effective in the workplace.
In India, one factor stands out far above the rest.I always see that the business is increasing when I’ve been there.Not that because I’m so good, [but] because I’m a Western guy.The Dutch and Congolese men’s experiences are echoed in many emerging market economies.My research focuses on migration and globalisation, primarily on what I call “frontier migration”: the movement of people, capital, technology, and ideas from a more “developed” economy to one that’s less “developed”.Through my work in India and earlier research in South Africa, I have concluded that migrant experience is over-determined by perceived socio-economic class and what the migrant looks likeeye shape, height, hair texture, and race.
Traditional economists cannot quantify or measure the effect of white male privilege in facilitating business dealings or obtaining employment in emerging market economies.
Countries like India and China represent greater and greater shares of global GDP.
As they grow, the role of white privilege in their economies will likely increase as well.
This has been grimly illustrated by a spate of mob attacks on Africans in north India. This is often correlated with a higher socio-economic status, so lighter skinned foreigners also benefit from this positive bias.

Almost every single white man from a “developed” country whom I interviewed candidly explained the positive effect his white skin had on his migration experience.
