Your the whitest black guy.

I sometime catch people off-guard when I ask them what they mean by saying “your the whitest black guy I know”. What does that mean? Is there some kind of way I’m supposed to dress, talk and act. I think there is a underlying most of the time unintentional racist undertone when I hear someone say it to me or anybody else. I believe it steams from the skewed image of what the media feeds us about African-American culture.
