I came across such term when I was reading a news article a while ago.
It’s about a middle-aged American who has been keeping himself away from any news, except for the weather, since he was badly shocked by the breaking news of Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election.
With the white noise through his headset, he manages to continue enjoying the same latte and the same scone in the same seat at the same coffee shop every morning.
It didn’t sound ‘white’ to me at all, though, when I was listening to a sample of it online.
Then a thought popped into my head. If we could chat with our ancestors again, it wouldn’t be easy for us to explain the concept of it and for them to understand what the world has become in the past few years.
