I’ve recently learned that black people often refer to all non-NAMs as white. (As best I can tell, Hispanics seem to get their own category, generally "Mexicans" regardless of their actual country of origin).
Black people in my neighborhood keep referring to the woman whose "grill got rearranged" as "white" even though she is not white. She is white in the SWPL way, and white in the sense that she’s not black, but she’s "not white" in that she’s not Caucasian.
The fact that black people keep referring to her as white is really pissing off all my SWPL neighbors (which is to say all my neighbors).
Some people are asking that this crime be considered a hate crime, but the SWPLs object because the woman was not "white."
