LOL my friends label others like almost all the time but its all in the jokes of course. In a serious way(which we r almost never r) I wouldnt label sum1 unless they stand out like... alot but maybe if I understood the person more I would change my opinion.

I get labeled too. In my class Im known as the smart one. From kids not in my class lets see: Pokemon Geek(dunno where that came up probably cuz of my nerdy glasses and my high academic ability), nerd. Well its not like I dont mind. I'd rather not say wat happened 2 a few ppl the past year but hm ppl judge others too quickly. I mean Im really smart I guess but Im a fiend on basketball and football and dodgeball. I have other talents but I would also rather not say cuz they r useless and r actually not good...

It is completely stupid. There are people who look retarded, but are extremely intelligent, and people who look intelligent and enlightened, but reveal upon opening their mouths that their minds are chasms of stark emptiness.

It isn't ever going to end though. Judging others by appearance is part of our nature.

Stereotypes, and I've been a victim to one, though it was a humorous and curious situation.

Given on how much people know the world (go look up how ignorant people can really be, or attempt to be smart), I was asked my ethnicity, which was Filipino.

Let's just say it hit 5 of the 7 continents. Ranging from Chinese, Japanese, Korean, (No one hit the southern countries...) Indian, Persian, Spanish, Portuguese, Native America, Brazilian, Argentinian.. Can't remember. I'm still trying to find an Antarctican.

Why do we have the almost unconscious mental impulse to label strangers for just about anything that differs from ourselves. I think labeling is wrong; who am I to judge them without knowing who they are, or what they have accomplished in their life?

Labels turn into stereotypes,
stereotypes evolve into prejudice
and prejudice spawns
hate.

i hate it when people label me as a rocker even do i do listen to rock but it just get's anyoing cause people tend to think that you only like dark evil things and that you aren't allowed to hang out with no one but people that only like what you like or look like you.

the moar you know! did you know?

1. that is called "prejudice"
2. prejudice is a major producer of drama
3. prejudice is frowned upon by the general public
4. most people are guilty of prejudice in one way or another
5. sometimes prejudice can be funny (like finding out the true identity of a trap assumed to be a girl)

now you know moar

People usually label me as FOB due to my interest in Korean Cultural and my hairstyle.
But in truth I was born here in the states (LA to be exact).

Labeling = Judging = Wrong

It's important in some cases, can't take that away.
