I poster a question on Facebook:
Why are White People afraid of being referred to as White?
Please enlighten this Black man.
Here is one response to that question:
“I am not afraid. When you say that to me you are describing the color of my skin. Not my country of origin, my status in society or my moral values. It would seem that just because we describe someone's physical form we are not defining them. Am I missing something?”
This is a good place to start, in my opinion you are not missing anything.
