    Falls in the category of “new racism”. It’s bias and prejudice.

    Other examples: “But you speak so eloquently!?”, “How is that you speak Italian so well?” (I believe that was once said to Kobe Bryant).

    Another one that I despise from “Us” is: She pretty for a brown skinned girl. I have a brown daughter.  That sounds ignorant as hell. She’s a beauty regardless of skin tone.

    Those are same people who go up to fat people and go you have such a pretty face…and shake their head like what a waste if only you weren’t fat is what they are implying.  They think they are giving a compliment when really they are just being an a$$.
