Typical Black Person? The phrase is electrically charged with racial stereotyping.
Of course, no one running for President used that phrase this week.
Instead, a Presidential candidate referred to a white woman who "on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes" as a "typical white person" because, in his mind, obviously, that is what “typical white people” do.
Thank you Barack Obama. I sometimes question how far we have come away from racial stereotyping. However far forward we have come, you have just set us back at least a half century to when the U.S. military was still largely segregated, and typical White people didn't serve side-by-side with typical Black people, because it was felt that they were stereo-typical White racists full of hatred for what they viewed as stereo-typical Black people.
