Well to be frank because you're talking about a marginalized group and you're white. And thus your words are practically laden with privilege.
And this isn't just a behavior, it's a practice used for years to ridicule and dehumanize POC and always always perpetuated by white people who have systematically dehumanized POC for centuries.
So when I say "get it together white people" and white people take it personally they either a) don't history at all, or b) care more about how it isn't "fair" that POC can say these things and they can't with out judgement (but we still get judged by white people so they win. again.) than the fact that blackface and other -faces are still a thing. Which is the really unfair thing.
