Pointless points

Some people, whenever they say something about someone else, always seem to feel the need to include irrelevant points about that person. “This guy came in the store- he was ‘Black’…” or “This guy I know- he’s gay…

And almost never does the story have anything to do with the details they parenthetically add.

I don’t see the point.

If someone is telling about me, such as saying I was eating a burrito, making a point to mention I was wearing a hat- when the hat doesn’t enter the story in any way- would be silly. Well, making the effort to include irrelevant details about people based on their “race” or “orientation” is just as dumb.
