It is very confusing to me how, at one hand people on this forum can't define what a white person is, but can speak about white priviledge.

I just have a simple question, which is how white priviledge can be defined. If someone is, say, 25% Afro-American, and 75% white/Indo-European or however you want to call it, but this person has blonde hair, non-brown eyes and doesn't look Afro-American at all, could you say that this person has white priviledge, because he or she looks white and because of this is more accepted in mostly white communities?
If a woman has a jewish father, and an Irish mother and looks completely white, although she is partly jewish and not fully white, is it still white priviledge?
And if what a white person is can't be defined, how can white priviledge be defined? What is it, if we don't know what a white person is?
