It reminds me of the time I tried watching the "Murphy Brown" reboot with my wife.  In one episode, Murphy Brown is arguing in a bar with a right-wing extremist and at one point she calls him "an old white man".  Not a "bitter" old man, or anything descriptive of his attitude or beliefs that she disagrees with.  But "an old white man" as if just being white should convey negative connotations on its own.
