Stereotypes
Posted 8/26/08
Well all know um, are old pal stereotypes, but the question is, are they real or a bunch of propagated bullshit. Well, lets take some time and examine some, if you have noticed different things in your culture, feel free to point it out and explain it, because this is the world from a black mans eyes.

Black people love chicken. - I cannot really argue with this. 90% of black people, indeed love chicken.

Black people like Kool Aid - I just finish making me some for tomorrow...er later today, whatever.

Black people are stupid, and the stupidest race there is. - Oh ho ho ho ho. Well, statistically speaking, if you don't take into account anything besides raw scores on things, yes, we probably are. But, lets look deeper into this.

The place's were you find abundance of Black people, are in generally poorer area's. In these area's, schools have general overall scores. Now, (and I have gone to very ghetto schools mind you) in these schools, there are also white kids, who mind you, score as bad as the majority of the black kids. In fact, you are more likely to find a black person who has good scores then a white person (due to the ratio of blacks to whites) The same is for the Mexicans, and Asians. They are all generally stupid.

No move over to a nice neighborhood, and you'll notice, that every race, included blacks, preforms at a high standard. So, is it really our race, or rather the education most of my race is exposed to? It's not a excuse, its just that EVERY race preforms generally the same when given the same conditions.

Asian people are smart - I have found, in most of the Asian people I know who score good grades, they are not smart, rather they study more then most of the other race's. And, I know more then 50 stupid Asian people with horrible grades.

Asian people like rice. - Gotta say, don't they? Every time I eat over one of my Asian friends house's, theres that good ol' rice with the dinner.

White people are stuck up - I have noticed that most white people live in better area's then a lot of other race's, and therefore have different standards for things. Just as we don't raise our standards in front of them, they don't lower then from us, thus we judge each other like a bunch of...-insert joke here-

White men have small penises - Sorry but after checking statistics for the average male penis size, white people came in at second largest (bet you'll never guess who came in first!)

Mexican people are lazy. - One illegal immigrant (not all Mexicans are illegal immigrants mind you) will work in 6 months doing more manual labor you have ever done in your whole life and not get paid what you do in a week. I don't get where this stereotype even comes from.

Feel free to point out some stereotypes, and discuss them in here.

actually... in a way every prejudice we have about anything can be considered to be a stereotype, and we have a lot of them. cops are fat and like donuts, white people can't jump, black people really like thier watermellons, mexicans can run really fast, and all that other shit that comes to mind whenever we think of a race and not a specific person from that race. although with the main question I would definately say it's a buch of propagated bull shit... either for a laugh in terms of some jokes or out out of hatin' in terms of racism.

people think mexicans/latin-americans are lazy from watching the old warner-brother cartoons...especially the speedy gonzolas...all you see in that cartoons is the mexicans sleeping in the street wearing their sombreo

Labels and stereotypes are different. A stereotype comes from your race, while a label can come by something like your clothes, or even the way you act.

People think us Canadians live in Igloos and say 'eh' every second word. <_<

I say eh a lot, not going to deny it.
But I've never seen an igloo.

Stereotypes do not only refer to racial discriminations. That would simply be a "racial stereotype". If you read through some of the entries in the "labels" thread, you will see that the discussion leans towards stereotypes found in modern day culture. So effectively, this thread is simply a duplicate topic.
