Nope. Not true. Speaking as a straight white male, I can tell you that there are plenty of us with very limited spheres of influence. It doesn't follow that just because so many captains of industry and heads of state happen to be straight white guys that the rest of us are somehow in on it. Straight white men as a group are not involved in some sort of grand conspiracy to keep down women and minorities. I demand to be treated as an individual rather than be mistreated solely because I happen to belong to a minorty (yes, men are a minority, strictly speaking, since women make up a slightly higher percentage of the population).
