    Not necessarily.

    Some of these individuals could be naive or unindoctrinated in the ways of a different culture.

    I was just this way as a white kid growing-up in a segregated city, during and just after the civil-rights movement & the King marches.

    Not long after, I dated a black girl.

    I marveled at the diversity of thought I found in her family, after seeing nothing but Dr. King & Jessie Jackson on TV, and watched them marching through our neighborhood en mass with huge crowds in tow.

    After meeting them, I was like: "What"? "What do you mean you don't like Jessie Jackson"? "Isn't he your guy"?

    I actually expected they worshiped 'their guys' the way we worshiped Sinatra, Rocky Marciano, & Joey D.

    Yeah, I was that naive ...

    Not always something that sinister, some just don't know what they're talking about of pure ignorance.

    This happens within races too. It's a marvel to see how many African Americans seem to think of black people as a monolith, something many other black ethnicities around the world do not do or wish to do. It's why I hate the term "black culture" and the way it's used as a Jamaican American, as if we're all the same, we ain't.

    I see it quite a bit on the internet, and can tell the folks doing this, and they're usually young like me, just don't know any better.

    Nobody cares if I am offended by their use of certain words or what-not.... why should I be concerned with offending them?

    I don't have that luxury. I'm not anonymous and my name means something professionally. I have to play nice with others in the public arena.

    I would NEVER anonymously ask a black person.

    I might consider asking a black person anonymously, however.
