Dear White people: Let this video be your guide on how to not sound racially ignorant when talking to a black person! This short, funny video by BuzzFeed Yellow flips the script and demonstrates how absurd people can sound when talking to people of other races. (And by the way, please don't ask, "Where are you from.") Man, with so many rules, it's getting pretty hard to be a white person these days. We feel for you.
