Whiteness in Non-White Countries

I was explaining white privilege to some my my white friends on the weekend and when they asked this question, I didn't completely know how to answer.

Does white privilege exist in non-white countries, such as China? Does a white person still have power in a POC country? If so, why or how would you explain it (exposure to American media, internalized racism etc...)?

If there have been discussions on this (which I'm sure there have been), I'd like to read them. Links are also helpful, as always. I'd just like to provide a clearer answer to my friends and to understand it better for myself.
