I'm Black but look White. Here are the horrible things white people feel safe telling me.

Miriam Zinter's response to people who say "But you're different!":

Sometimes they say: “But you're different!” Then I ask them if other Black folks they know are also “different.” When they say yes, I ask them: “How are all the Black people you know ‘different'? When are you going to realize that we are not different? That you have been misled into believing that Black people are somehow bad, and that what you see with your own eyes ― these Black people you know, and know are not different or bad ― are good people like you?”
