    Evidently you're also unfamiliar with the phrase as it's a compliment that implies white people are generous.

    Still do.
    Some years ago, I worked with a whole crew of crusty old douchebags that used it all the time. They also really really liked the n word.

    Not surprising, but that sort of attitude is not unique to white people.

    I was referring to the way you described those white men behaving.

    I can't remember ever hearing this and I've lived in the deep south my entire life.

    I just meant it isn't not unusual for groups to say negative things about other groups when not in mixed company.

    Oh, I think I see.
    Well that's not really relevant to my anecdote, except as a sort of shoe in.

    Just an ambiguous smart-ass saying in my opinion. I say it on the odd occasion but it was my native buddies who got me started. I legit think nothing of it. Now "drive like a white man" can have both negative and positive meaning depending on context. Both for white people and the melanin gifted folks.

    Context and intent is all that matters. Words are window dressing.

    I've had a random dude start the "those damned immigrants" chat with me at a pub once. But then I look like the typical white supremacist. Imagine his surprise when I turned out to be one of those damned immigrants. Surprise, nipplehead!

    It sounds like he’s suggesting that you bought the burger, generously allowed him to have some (for free) and then finished the rest of your burger.

    It is in my case because I've experienced the same thing with non white people.

    Ya, not bicc'd, just on 0 with clippers. It's a matter of convenience. The cro magnon brows and wtf scowl doesn't help either. But hey, I have a disarming personality.

    If a word/phrase bothers you that much, you’re a weak person inside and out.
