When a white person (usually unprompted) apologizes for the perceived culture of racism that prevails today. Not to be confused
with making a heartfelt apology for an instance of racism.
White person- “Hey I saw you eating lunch over here and just felt compelled to tell you I am sorry for the prevailing culture of racism that has historically kept your people down and prevented you from being a self-actualizing human being.”
Person of color- “Thank you?”
Later that day
Spouse of person of color- “how was your day?”
Person of color- “it was pretty good. I was late getting to work after lunch because of white apology again.”
