This thread reminds me of 4th grade when our Korean classmate taught all of us how to write our names in Korean. Haha the teacher had a hard time giving our papers back to the right student that week xD.

As far as sagging jeans or wearing skinny jeans that show your underwear, who really cares? People can wear what they want to wear. That doesn't tell you anything about them but what kind of style they identify with. Hitler wore suits and so did Al Capone, John Dillenger, and George Barnes (Machine gun Kelly) so are we to assume that anyone that wears nice suits is a gangster, thug or a murderous zealot? Hmmm... I think people need to re-prioritize. I also find it funny how gangsters from the 30's and 40's are now glorified in movies but the gangsters of today behave similarly and they are looked at as disgusting criminals. So many people love movies like the godfather and scarface but they hate the current criminals and drug dealers of today. What's that all about?


Do you even know the origins of sagging pants?

A quote from another black man:

Black parents, it’s important to offer our children an understanding of the historical provenance of sagging pants. Wearing sagging pants emerged from prisons. In prisons, sagging pants is symbolic and a tangible expression to have other men recognize that one is homosexual and ready to be penetrated in the anus. While I’m in no way trying to get you to preach to your children against homosexuality, what I’m attempting to do is have you educate your children about the origin of sagging pants and the symbolic and practical meaning of those sagging pants for those situated in prison. I want your children to be fully informed about their choice to sag their pants.

Actually it came from that fact that none of them were allowed to have belts (which can be used as a weapon) and that prison clothes are one-size-fits-most-maybe.

Gangsters outside of prison would wear sagging pants as a show of solidarity. But like Che Gueverra T-shirts the meaning has been lost and it's just done to be 'cool'

Me and one of my friends always racially sterotype each other all the time. I would make fun of him using black jokes and he would do the same to me with white jokes. Who knew insulting each other would make a strong friendship.

I have a few times by some of my "friends" so to speak. Some people like to assume that since I am white I must have loads of money on me and am able to pay for their lunch/food, ticks me off.

Most of this forum seems pretty pathetic, like a pity party for themselves. Woe is everyone who's ever had a slightly bad experience with being stereotyped. It's so pathetic. Now that you realize that most people in the world have experience some negative stereo typing get over yourselves and move on. If you're that sensitive you might as well just stay in the house.

People often think I'm anorexic, just because I weigh 48 and I'm 1.67 m.
Though I eat for 3 most of the time. It's just my build and fast metabolism.
Nobody really thinks it's true until they see how much I push down my throat in a few hours. :3

Yeah every now and again. It's surprising how many people are racist against white people. We are probably the most socially censored race there is, despite being a highly global minority on the planet.


That would be because (straight) white men have all the money and power.
But seriously, white people are not actually socially censored, they are just very sensitive to social disapproval because they don't know what it's like to really be looked down upon.

Isnt it kind of ironic that in a racial stereotype topic you are writing a racial stereotype? Anyways racial stereotypes are usually passed down from parents behavior, or learned in childhood. Childs are ignorant and tend to stick with what the elders tell them. Naturally it may be painfull but you shouldnt take it personally.

Also regarding an earlier post here. About being turned down because your black or white, i wouldnt really call that racist. Every person has his or her own type of woman/man they like.

Ah, I don't usually include a string of quotes like this, but I wanted to provide context. I challenge you to explain how my statements were racial stereotypes and explain your reasoning with reliable data.

The definition of "stereotype" according to Merriam-Webster online is: something conforming to a fixed or general pattern; especially : a standardized mental picture that is held in common by members of a group and that represents an oversimplified opinion, prejudiced attitude, or uncritical judgment

My statements were a direct response to Netdisorder's statement regarding how he, and white people like himself, are the most socially censored race, despite being a global minority. Also it is a fact that white people as a group have more money and more power than any other ethnicity, at least in western nations like the U.S. It is fairly simple to test this by examining our political and business leaders - they are overwhelmingly straight white men. Due to white privilege, white people here have less experience with racial discrimination than any other ethnicity. However, the number of white people complaining of racial discrimination is disproportionately large compared to the complaints of people of other ethnicities. In other words, white people experience it less but feel it more, and the only reasonable explanation is that white people are unaccustomed to racial discrimination and subsequently are more sensitive to it.

- I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. -
~ Martin Luther King Jr.

So, when I see a group of Mexican girls in tight jeans, six inch heels, tight shirts, flirting with every guy that passes by . . . I judge them, because I am pretty sure that they really ARE s!uts, and if only one of those girls were s!uts . . . It wouldn't matter, because you are ALSO judged by the company you keep.
