Oh, this is SO true.

How do I know this?

I am white but I have spent decades off & on listening to black people on Black/Urban/Public radio ( panel discussians/ phone-ins), similar panels on TV and my black work acquantences, & balck friends about their experiences.
And reading many Op-eds, and articles/interviews in various magazines and newspapers.

On rare occasions I've recognized it in myself, and worked on correcting that.
