Media captionThousands have tweeted their experiences of "ignorant" things white people say

Have you ever said something to someone of another culture or ethnicity and later wondered if it was patronising or slightly racist?

A hashtag on Twitter has inspired thousands of people to share their experiences of "ignorant" things white people have said to them: The hashtag #WhiteProverbs has trended in the US and Australia.

Anne-Marie Tomchak of #BBCtrending meets the person behind the trend and asks if it verges on racism or is just a bit of a laugh at white people's expense?
