I get it. When somebody says “White people suck,” it stings a bit if you happen to have skin that vague shade of pinkish-beige.

But those who get offended are missing a few things. “White people suck” or “I am so tired of white people” is not equivalent to throwing out an N word or loudly declaring how Black people commit all the crimes.
