An elderly white lady once told me that all Mexicans were great gardeners after giving her a pepper plant. She also said that the Japanese were pretty good gardeners as well.

My mom yelled "NARUTO SASUKE AAAA SAKURA" in an airport in Japan. I had to stay away a bit pretending I'm not her daughter.

honestly, not that much. i'm mixed (african-american & white) so people can't even tell what race I am.
i've been made fun of and stereotyped for being mixed, or stereotyped with another race.
apparently mixed girls are sluts and rape babies.


Odd because I had an acquaintance through a friend who once said that he only dates black/white biracial girls because bringing home a white girl would get him killed by his parents and that they have a reputation for being skanky. I asked him where that came from, the stereotype and he couldn't pinpoint it. Just said it's what everyone says. But I only ever heard that from him.

Funny to randomly hear about it.


Cookies and Cream is the best. I don't know why people hate on biracials. Genetically speaking it's like the best of both worlds. Not to mention the natural tans... People that believe stereotypes at face value are delusional.

As a white girl living in a primarily black neighborhood, people somehow think I'm richer than everyone else. Unfortunately a few individuals in my community have believed that justified stealing from me, although it was never anything big.
Sometimes people mistake me for the other white girl like we all look the same, too, which is kind of funny. I don't know if there's already a term for that, but I call it racial facial blindness.
I've also been stereotyped as racist just because I'm white, even though I'm not. I think it's really sad. If I were racist I would live somewhere else.

Actually its easy not to be racist. Realize people are individuals. So what if there are some bad black people near you? By that logic I should assume all white people are negligent racists because I had white teachers in kindergarten allow a white student kick me repeatedly and found it funny. So are are white people child abusers?? No. It's really easy not to be racist. Don't be. Judge each person you meet as an individual. Also don't judge people by how they dress, but instead by their actions. Is it so hard to treat another person as a human because their pants sag? Besides where I live pants sagging is only done by boys under age 15 of all colors. Yes it's dumb, but no I don't treat them any less than I'd like to be treated. Pretty simple.

As a Caucasian...not really. I have, however, been discriminated against because of my religion many times. Even had a group of antisemitic protesters picketing outside my home....

I don't think many people have experienced this.

Uh...

If I was, I didn't notice.
It's safe to assume I am white as hell.

To be fair though, that is a bit of stereotyping yourself. It may be the case with the majority you have met, but that isn't nearly a representative sample of two whole countries. Sorry if this came across as a bit hostile, as it was not my intent. ANYWAYS, the real point is I just wanted to say that this would technically be more of a cultural stereotype.

Back on topic: I live in California's Central Valley. It's like someone took a chunk of the South and dropped in on the Coast. Add to the mix the stereotypes associated with Latinos & ag industry, and you become desensitized to the casual racism that bombards Latinos. I don't like playing the victim much, so I'll just add that it's not an exclusive to any one race. Pretty much everyone is racist towards someone to some extent. Intentional or not, unfortunately, it happens
