Racist or not, whichever way you look at me, is no importance to me, it's my point of view.
I'm sick of being called a racist for what I observe.

I notice the difference in cultures, both good and negative, am I being racist?
Or just saying what I see?
First off, the stereotypes. They're all right.

Because stereotypes that aren't right NEVER stick, and you people need to understand that.

Like if you go, black guys, horrible at hoops, small wangs, asians, horrible at math, worlds greatest drivers.
It'll never work.
You try to start a stereotype that doesn't stick, good luck getting it off the ground.
They ONLY stick if they're True.

But does that mean every asian is good at math and horrible at driving? of course not.
Does it mean a disproportionate number are? Yes.

So we need to understand that there are differences in culture.

I can spend all day long talking about asians.
I'm not asian, but am I not allowed to discuss about asians? Or anything under the sun?
Of COURSE I am.
I have eyes, ears, a brain, and am able to produce opinions.

What erks me is how, general speaking, comedians who arn't white are "allowed" to make racists jokes/comments and get off with huge laughter. When a white comedian does the same it's not as funny....

Also when it comes to the N word. It's either okay for EVERYONE to say or NO ONE. You can't pick and choose when a word is racist.

I'm a black female, and if that was said to me by any black person, I would probably punch them in the face. It is demoralising and wrong.

Law Enforcement Officers in the U.S. go through a course called Cultural Diversity. They outline stereotypes in hopes to train the students how to better read people, or in some cases, profile. An example, outside of race, is how people from the north act compared to people from the south. If you didn't know the difference, you may interpret the speed at which they talk as either being agitated (fast - north) or intoxicated (slow - south).

Yes, stereotypes are very real. It's just taboo.

Oh. Wow. I think I see the light here.

So, the stereotype that White people are racist and think they are a superior people is in fact true according to what you are asserting.

And White men are pedophiles. Ummm, all of them are greedy , ummmm white people smell like mayonnaise is another one I've heard or when they sweat, there's this musty dog odor.

Okay, Okay. I see.

Ahhhh I does not read well, I might be a racist


But seriously picking up on common social things isn't wrong, its all about how you go about pointing them out.

Hop on over to the Uniform Crime Report and be surprised! People always claim the majority of serial killers and pedophiles are white. Guess not all stereotypes are true.

The point is that it is unfair to lable with such a large brush. In fact technically speaking the information in and of itself is wrong.

Why not just say...that guy is great at hoops.
Or Michael Jordan is a great ball player.

See where I am going with this.
Besides not being offensive, you will be right more often.

Besides that. You are attributing said malady or talent with ethnicity.
Being black doesn't make him a great at hoops. The fact that he grew up spending hours on the court, often tomes playing against older and larger opponents, and he happened to be blessed with height. That's what makes him a great basketball player.

many of his friends may have been in the same socioeconomic situation, where as it was the only affordable way to occupy your time. Passion for a specific game evolves in certain cultures this way. This may be a contributing factor to the number disparagement.

Explanation: 100% correct ... Stereotypes do exist!

Personal Disclosure: They are exactly like nuclear weapons and wmd's They exist ... but you can't use them to screw people over and hope to remain unblemished by the wanton destruction of anybodies rights to not be ad hominened!

Nonetheless, the OP is correct. Racial stereotypes don't just appear out of nowhere. They also don't stick without cause.

I think Daniel Tosh said it best when it comes to race in comedy, and I think its applications are broad:
racial stereotypes are funny because they are true.

i for one will laugh when i see a black man drink grape juice. cant help it and it makes no difference whether i see something stereotypical on t.v. or in reality- sorry. im not racist, i just don't deny consistencies in races...

I like fried chicken.
I love grape cool aid.
I have 6 watermelon plants in my backyard.

Why are these stero types...and why do these choices in taste, make anyone deserve ridicule for any reason.



I am white.
