This idiocy is everywhere, perpetuated by everyone. Not JUST white people. I heard that eye question every day that I lived in Japan, directed towards white people, because thier eyes were different. In addition, people from all over the world ask ridiculous questions about countries like Canada: “do you guys still live in igloos and drive dog sleds to work?” Not just about countries in Africa, etc. I agree it is ridiculous and we all need to stop doing it. But the conversation needs to opened up to everyone. No solutions will come from blaming whole groups of people instead of pointing the conversation toward the ignorant individuals from all societies and all cultures…towards the ignorant, individual human beings. Not JUST one group of them. Especially when not everyone in that group is ignorant.
