“Acting white” is a pejorative term applied mostly to black people. This term refers to someone who assumes “white characteristics,” as if those existed. Some characteristics associated with whiteness are education and achievement, among many others. This term, and its counterpart, Acting Black has many expectations and stereotypes attached to it, and is therefore unacceptable. Black and white don’t come with certain distinguishing characteristics, and should therefore not be used to generalize or stereotype.
