What is the proper adjective for "privilege"?

When used in terms such as 'white privilege', of course. I mean, this is a political forum, but some people have to be told.

Does one "suffer" from privilege? Do they "benefit" from privilege? What is the proper way to accurately describe *how* it affects the person?
