When someone calls you white washed are they not
generalizing the whole white race by saying that every white person acts the same exact way?
I was at a party and a friend of mine told me that i was becoming white washed because of small choices ive made like my taste in music and alcohol.
The term "whitewashed" means glossing over things, so unless somebody co-opts it to mean something completely different, it's just a term. Now, if someone co-opted it, and made it offensive to someone, then I'd tell them to shut up, nobody wants to hear that. Well, I went and tried to make [someone who messed up royally]'s mistake look good. That's what whitewashing is.
