As a white person, I see other white people at my university doing impressions of how they think black people talk. I think I also do it sometimes. Like people will be like, "get outta that class, yo!" or "you crazy, girl." Sometimes it's more subtle like this, or one time it was really bad, and a white guy did a whole monologue during a performance as a stereotypical black person. What do people think of this? Have you ever had a conversation confronting someone about it?
