I am so guilty of treating people (of all races) who I admire like this I think - thanks for pointing out how annoying it is x)
Though I think it also stems from being around so much ignorance 24/7 that when I find a clear-minded, educated person I just want to thank them to the moon and back for not being an idiot.
I see where you're coming from though, and I don't doubt there are people who act this way because they think it's how you're supposed to treat minorities. That minorities need constant sympathy and aid because they can't do good without a white persons guidance and praise. Which seems rather racist, considering it's almost like implying "hey, you are lesser, let me give you a star for tying your own shoes this morning!" ..Or like the poster/(troll?) I addressed earlier, who is apparently a white person who thinks only white people can be racist and only minorities can be victims, and therefore sides with minorities regardless of their character - which again seems kind of ignorant considering minorities are not all the same and there are bad apples among them too. To group them all together and paint them as the "victims" - damn racist in my eyes. It is mind boggling.
One of my close friends always had the same complaint, he hated the pity-party that was thrown his way day in and day out. He was quite wealthy and successful in life, so he didn't need anyone feeling sorry for him just because he was black.
