I accidentally said “white people love to X” and these 3 white people started yelling at me that “not all white peoples

and idk how to put into words why I always make the distinction between what white people do vs. me as a brown person and why I always have to call it out. Idk random vent but wondering if anyones felt this way/ has words to put into as to why

Personally I believe it stems from an inner belief we have that white people cannot experience racism/ stereotypes since they have so much privilege, therefore we feel we can call out ___ about them. Hope this helps!
