That’s an interesting take, but I feel like glomming on to the ‘traditional’ definition of things fails to leave room for colloquial words or uses. It also seems like the only reason that someone would want to make the argument that “white privilege isn’t a thing based on this very narrow, historical dictionary definition” is sort of a waste of time, an intellectualized idea that does nothing to address the actual problem at hand.
