I think everybody will be racially stereotyped at least a few times in their lives.

Memorable experiences are when people assume I have brown skin since I'm Hispanic, but when they see my real skin color they're shocked. People are surprised all the time when they find out I speak Spanish very fluently, or that I'm not a "muffin-top Mexican". Although this is all online. I am fortunate enough to have been raised in a good neighborhood with other Hispanics. My school district has about half White people and the rest are minorities. My group of friends were pretty diverse. I had 2 White friends, a Hispanic friend, and a Filipino friend.

All in all, at my part-time job I just ignore the comments people make when they're surprised I speak Spanish or that I'm not loud like Hispanics are sometimes seen.

Although my most strangest experience was when someone thought I was Jewish. It has nothing to do with this topic, but I just found it pretty random.

Edit: I forgot to clarify, people are surprised I speak Spanish since they assume I'm White. Although I can't blame them, a lot of my ancestry is from Spanish decent.


What the hell is a "muffin-top mexican"?

It is stereotypical for people to believe Mexican women are all overweight and have an obsession with tight pants, hence that is formed.

Edit: Sorry removed the link, just Google "muffin top".

We all learn something new everyday. Honestly I'm surprised you didn't know, from what I've seen the majority of people stereotype Mexican women like this daily on the internet.

i'm not a foreigner so this doesn't happen often in the Reallife, but when i play onlinegames i happens 24/7. "U'r german? Do you like Hitler? Are u a nazi?". Stuff like this really pisses me off, since the Nationalsocialism is nothing to laugh about.

Plenty of times as a black female I've been stereotyped and had jokes made about. Ex. " You like grape juice, right?" or "Pat yo weave, gurl, pat yo weave ." ( That one I find rather funny for some reason). And then there's the other blacks at my school, that call me an Oreo because I don't 'sound' black and I'm some honors classes and band. I find the whole ' you gotta act X to be considered X ' thing bullshit.

People think I'm either Mexican or Asian when they first see me. To give you an idea, I have dark brown hair and eyes and olive skin. My eyes are somewhat small, but not that small! I'm really Croatian-Serbian. People think I should wear Hollister all the time and have a thick accent and should be stupid. But I'm a kooky, smart, anime + cat lover that dresses creatively and fashionably. Also, I have a great sense of sarcasm. WRONG, you silly donkeys.

ALL THE TIME!
I never take stereotypes or racism serious anyways. Even when somebody is seriously racist. It all just makes me laugh today. I use stereo types in my jokes on EVERYBODY not just one group of people even my fellow darkies I mean "black" people.
But seriously yes I do all the time. For example:
I was walking from my friends house and he lives in a Jewish neighborhood. I as walking with two other friends and we weren't even making a blockade like most teens do on the sidewalk. We was just laughing having a good time and then these two little jewish start running for their lives! They kept looking back at us with this expression like D: Mind you I am brown skin with a yellow tint, my other friend is lightskin so he is yellow like a crayon and my third friend is caramel. Far from intimidating if you ask me. So what did we do? Play the douche bag and chase after them. Man they ran fast. What a hilarious day that was.
I'm sorry but I'm the type of guy who doesn't get butthurt over things I should get butthurt about.
