    Unintentional Racial Stereotypes

    I think everyone has them.
    What are yours, whether they're common or uncommon, irrational or somewhat justified in societal circumstances...just blurt them out, k?
    This could get ~*juicy*~, amirite?

    Ah, lovely thread, guvna. Scone?

    Anyway, concerned with race and all that, I'm not really bothered if they talk in our language, that tells me that they actually want to be in the country, but people from, say the Middle East that don't speak our language, I think they're here to mooch off our benefits. However, if someone French is here, hey, they're just visiting, they can come here all they like!

    Maybe I should start, incase some people don't exactly know what I mean.

    Okay, I'm walking through the subway station in Toronto at night.
    I pass a group of Asian guys. I'm not very intimidated at all.
    I pass a group of guys from Pakistan. Not very intimidated at all.
    I pass a group of black guys. Scared shitless.

    Not very nice, or fair, but in Toronto, unfortunately it's usually justified.
    I have had SO many scary and uncomfortable experiences. They are what I base this on, and feel really guilty. I love me some classy brothaz :\

    Your turn.

    It's not race, it's more of a way people dress themselves, like hoody immediately means run for your life.
    I love you, Adam.

    Sometimes I forget to call Latino people Latino and accidentally say Mexican..But I always correct myself as soon as I think about it and apologize.
    Also, I mostly assume any African American that isn't fat is athletic..That one is bad..

    Thanks to manred for the great sig.

    I definitely stereotype people. There isn't a person on this planet that doesn't judge others.

    The biggest thing I hate about racial stereotyping is reverse discrimination. I don't consider myself to be racist by any means, but people seem to point out the stupidest things.

    *waits for something to respond to*

    Not to fit a mold,

    Not to join a trend,

    Not to follow a crowd

    - I assume Muslim women who wear hijab think those who don't are weak and immodest, among other things.
    - I assume most of the world's religious population would conclude I'm going to hell for being an astonishingly liberal, bisexual athiest. When apparently, there are some people out there who wouldn't judge me on those things. I've only ever met two, but they're lovely.
