Re: white people moaning.
I find it obnoxious when any group makes a comment about an entire other group.
I have been cautious about stereotyping for 30 years.
It’s like hearing nails on a chalkboard to see or read articles about what white ppl think, or Asian people think, or Black people think , or First Nations people think, or Polynesian people think, or any hybrid group thinks.
In my limited experience, the people I know who enjoy reading and posting these kinds of articles share the viewpoint of the author, often the same cultural group as the author, which feeds into the Friend Foe dynamic.
Are you with us or against us?
Making people more polarized by stereotyping causes a lot of hurt and harm.
I’m not going to be critical of, or offended by, a 75 year old Russian immigrant or a 65 yo Midwestern farm wife describing shawarma as exotic. I don’t use Oriental to describe food because it offends some people I know, but if someone speaking a 2nd language uses Oriental to describe food, I’m not going to correct them. I’m not going to police people on an online cooking and food forum.
There are bigger fish to fry.
