One of the many middle schools I went to, was predominately black and Mexican, so I was called "white boy" "cracker" and my all time favorite, "Saltine." So.....yes? lol

I'm mixed between Hmong/White/Hispanic - so people don't really know how to approach a racially stereotypical comment about me.

Tbh, neither do I ...

ALL THE TIME. I'm hispanic, have a fairly solid build, shave my head and have a goatee.

It used to bug me at first, but now I accept it and let them see the real me once we start talking. I've also changed my perception on what used to be a negative and have realized that it's a great filter for myself. If you're not willing to approach or be approached by me, than we're better left as strangers.

you know whats Awesome about racially stereotypes; They start with majority truth... Any rational mind should use statistical data, There is a dozen racial statistics i could call off which would have me deemed raciest; But sadly math isn't raciest just the truth ( Liberals the dumbest most raciest mental illness on the planet ( Yes, Liberalism is a mental illness))

Well I'm Haitian so many people think that we do voodoo, eat cats, and are dirty but that's just the opposite of me. Hate it when people talk bad about Haitians .

All the time, when there's smoke there's fire. Think of stereotypes basically generalizations to save time. Plus they're hilarious and think people need chillax.

White people are racially stereotyped all the time. And yes. I know I can't dance. I do have a groove though, and nobody can out-groove me.

I don't think stereotyping is the right word to use here.. I think you mean more.. 'mistaken for belonging to another race' type situation.

One time I got pulled over for matching the description of a Hispanic robbery suspect, while driving home from a restaurant with my family. I've been mistaken for an Asian person from time to time.

I'm not really sure if what I'm about to say is Racially Stereotype. But most of the people I met call me "Tiny & Midget". It's not my fault that I wasn't blessed with the gift of height. And it's my own kind that calls me that.

One thing I'm sure of, not all Asians have small eyes and some sort of freaking nerds.

Being tall kind of cut out the "white people can't play basketball" thing, and that also intimidated anyone out of messing with me in general. Though I have to say I have been religiously stereotyped... and Wicca's a hard thing to clear up, especially since it's like the Fight Club of religion.

I'm Mexican, Chinese and White, so I look racially ambiguous. Because of that, people don't know what I am. So, I never been stereotyped.

Oh, I have a funny story:

Whenever I tell people that I'm mixed, some people go and like they just discovered an unicorn. I find the reactions to be hilarious. It also happens to my sisters.
