stereotypes and you
Stereotypes are fun and exciting ways to judge people without having to get to know them. We all do it, it's just a matter of admitting it. For me I like to take common stereotypes for ethnic groups and apply them to other races. It makes for a much more funner way of interacting. Once in a blue moon, for example, if I see a white person walking down the street late at night, I'll cross the street so we don't cross paths. Also I like to pretend that old people don't lie, cheat and steal. Finally I try to imagine that little children are in fact full of joy and have relevant things to say.
