Accused of racism by a friend (who does the same thing I did to other people) Watch

    Context being she makes jokes about peoples appearances and compares them to fictional characters in movies.

    Today during one of her jokes I played her at her own game and called her Coffy and she got angry straight away and screamed racism then went on about all black people being victims etc.

    Irony being I am from a poor home so badly off parents went without food for dayas at a time growing up, in a damp house wearing like 3 or 4 jumpers and all clothes were from charity shops if not hand me downs and she is from a middle class home and has all the latest gadgets.

    For those who don't know Coffy is a 1970s black female character, in the actual poster for the movie she has an afro and looped earings wearing bright bikini.

    Guess what this girl has, an afro, loop earings and bright bikini.

    So what did I do wrong?
