Banana man--yellow on appearance but all white inside. Topic

Dear Wave,
Your English is really good!
I think it is better to say:  He is a banana.  Rather than saying:  He is a banana man.
I know you ran across it in your reading.  So for example you would not say:  She is a banana woman.  You would just say:  She is a banana.

BTW, a black (American) who is thinks or wants to act like a white person is called:  He is an oreo.
(the cookie that is black outside and white inside) I believe the exprerssion oreo is older than banana.  There is also the expression: coconut .   This is for someone who is brown outside buy acts like a white person.  BTW, you should not call a person these terms to their face unless you want to start a fight.

It's my first time to know such description in a vivid way. Of course this touched me deeply. Anyway, thanks!
