One thing I really hate is when people say things like, "She sounds black/white."
I got a call from a newspaper survay they asked me questions about Obama, Health care, that sort of thing. At the end she asked me what my race was she read off the choices and I said, "Black." This woman says to me, "Oh you sound white."
I asked "What does white sound like?"
her response made me want to pull my hair out and bang my head against the table.
"Well, you know... proper English."
