I'm black & I hear this a lot in the black community. Even my own family does this. They'll be talking about a negative topic, then they'll say something like:

• "Yeah, white people do that shit!"
• "You will only see those white people doing that."
• *sigh* "White people."

When they're serious and are not joking around, I always feel kinda weird. Most of the time, their conclusions are based on their personal opinions rather than statistical evidence. And I don't think they'd want white people doing the same to them. If the races were reversed, most black people would see those as racist things to say.

So, is this a good or bad way of speaking? Should people replace some of the words used? Or maybe stop entirely? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. 🙏
