IF you really wanted to sarcastically thank someone for explaining something to you, with the implication that you are thought to be an idiot, there are many other phrases that would have conveyed that idea without the associated baggage that race brings with it.
You could have said "How very helpful of you", or "How very supportive" or any other number of things.
To say "How very white" pretty blatantly suggests that only caucasians are capable of being condescending or insulting when purporting to assist someone they feel is intellectually beneath them. My experience on this planet so far proves to me that such an undesirable trait is hardly limited to people of any one race.
You think that calling Obama "leftist and radical" is a racist statement? Seriously? Have you ever seen any photos of Karl Marx?
I suppose if that is true, then white Parisians who make derogatory remarks about their new socialist leader (who happens to share the same skin color as them) are all racist as well then.
Wow.... I give up, man. You can't reason someone out of a position they didnt reason themselves into.
Dude, mellow the f out. My "very white of you" reply was for a comment directed at me, about not understanding finance. It had nothing to do with Obama or any racially sensitive topic. Get off your high horse.
The fact that Karl Marx is white has nothing to do with anything. Dennis Kucinich and Ed Shultz are radical liberals, they're white, and I'm OK with that. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are black, and I'm fine calling them radical liberals too. But as a president, Obama is extremely moderate; he's pro NRA, pro nuke, pro drilling, and has not pushed very hard on many of the liberal agendas. He also attends the prayer breakfast. So for someone to call him a radical leftist involves an emotion beyond policy.
