Woman asks if it was wrong to tell her white friend to stop "speaking with a 'Black' voice."

When your friend's engaging in cringeworthy behavior, should you let them figure it out on their own or tell them to stop?

One woman is asking if she was wrong for telling her friend to stop putting on a "'Black' voice" even though they're both white. She took to Reddit to ask for advice.

Both women are white:

We are both white women in our mid 20's. Her whole family is white as far as I know.

The voice seems to be a new thing:

I've known "Sally" for a few years but this has only come up in the past couple of months. Basically whenever she wants to convey emotions like surprise or signal that she's worried or angry about something/someone, she puts on this exaggerated, very stereotypical African American voice (not gonna type it out, but if anyone has ever seen Bunifa on MadTv it's like that.) It's completely different from her normal voice and frankly it makes me uncomfortable.
