Alright, let's get real for a second. I'll ask that you kindly check your pride at the door so we can all collectively agree that white people have a habit of saying some pretty silly things.
Don't even pretend like you aren't included in that. I bet you won't leave this article without finding at least five phrases that you, if you are a white person, have said at one point or another. If not you, then definitely your dad.
And if you're anything like me, you'll walk away feeling awfully bashful because you've said every single one of these phrases before. Hey, it's nothing to be ashamed about. It is what it is.
(I think that might be another one right there.)
