All the people of color (POC) on Twitter came together for a fun, cultural party to bond over the misconceptions white people have about POC culture. Here are just a few things that people had to say at the #ConfuseWhitePeopleParty.
It. Is. Never. Butter.

Doesn’t matter if it’s a butter container or a sour cream container. There is always some ~other~ kind of food being stored, whether rice and beans or your breakfast from last week. Something white people just don’t understand.
Just because we’re Latino doesn’t automatically mean we have a large family.

Though, the chances of a large family in the Latino community is pretty likely, it isn’t how the whole community works.
Whether you’re 18 or 98, as long as mami and papi are alive, you will always have to ask permission.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever seen your white friend say they told their parents they were going out instead of asking. ????
Just so we’re clear, Taco Bell ≠ Mexican food. Got it?
Taco bell isn't authentic Mexican Food #ConfuseWhitePeopleParty

Won’t really change the infatuation with Taco Bell, but we should be distancing ourselves from it.
Abuelita’s rules are followed without question.

Look, she spends her whole day cleaning. The last thing she needs is for you to track in dirt with your filthy shoes.
Just because we speak Spanish doesn’t automatically make us Mexican.
There are more latin countries than Mexico #ConfuseWhitePeopleParty
— Cami (@galaxy_godess) July 20, 2016
There are 23 Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America. Better to ask than assume we’re Mexican.
Speaking of which, just because we’re Latino doesn’t mean we’re from another country.

Sometimes we are first-, second-, third-, even fourth-generation Americans. We just have a little extra sabor!
Meat and other foods need to be seasoned.

Who even likes bland chicken?
And, one more time, Latino does NOT mean Mexican.

Glad we cleared that up.
