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.

yep always being called cracker or honky or i !@#$ my sister because i'm redneck but racial stereotypes wouldn't exist if they didn't have some truth behind it. not saying i boink my sister just saying that some bonehead boinked his sister and he was white and thats how it started. but racial stereotypes don't hurt my feelings at all, so fire away.

Humans can't help, but stereotype and place people in groups... what a drag.

This happens to me ALL the time. Being severely mixed like myself can be a huge disadvantage around some people. I am an African American who is also Native American, Indian (as in India), British, and Mongolian... Considering the U.S., it's not really all that surprising since I can also do the same to others.

well i don't know if you could consider it racial stereotyping, maybe more like regional or something but any time i tell some one from the georgia they all automatically kind of assume that i'm either a raciest redneck or white trash most of the time. which is always so strange to me when people think that.

As an asian, yeah. But Idon't mind since I dont get butthurt easily, and I then reply with another racist remark to them. Im asian, cambodian -- and I constantly get called typical asian stereotype names and chinese, even though Im cambodian.

A little bit..I often feel like I can't stray too far outside of my race's stereotype to other people because they want to keep me in a box.

I am a filipino but I hang out with a lot of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean friends, so I am often grouped with them asians XD. I was always considered part of them and I was okay with that and I always laughed at the joking stereotypes that people often said in our homeroom. It was always in a joking way so I was okay with it. And it's always fun when someone asks where you are from and guesses places like Japan, China, Mongolia(lol yep) and never get to the Philippines.
