Bottom line is that stereotypes are wrong, and the only way we can get rid of them is to make people aware of them! If you agree that predjiduces and stereotypes are wrong. Repost this, with the title that best fits your mold! And make others aware (oh and if you know any other stereotypes please add to the list.

Stereotyping is wrong, but I must admit these two made me laugh because I've never even heard of them and can't think of how they could be used as stereotypes.

I am Chinese, so I must own a fish and chips shop.

I am Asian, so I must be a bad driver.

Obviously over in America they might be really common - I'm not sure. Just thought they were a little mad! :D

Good post though.

Yeah, some of these looked odd to me too. Others though are familiar and I have seen people hurt by them.

I first heard the driving one after two street racers were killed in Vancouver. Someone said "well, you know they WERE Chinese (Asian)." This stereotype was fueled by the accident and by the tabloid papers.

I agree stereotyping is wrong but I think there is also some truth to alot of them. There will always be exceptions, of course.
