No Poll---------Dancing and White People : )

This isnt about white people and dancing, Im not the greatest judge, let alone dancer myself. My dancing looks like what Bill Cosby does : )

I just wanted to comment on something similar to a post I recently saw in here about assumtions of black people (swimming/riding bikes).

I guess I never believed in something just because I didnt see it, let alone if I did see it, just because a certain race was doing it. If that were the case, Id have tons of ignorant (IMO) questions to ask all races.

I mean really, this is what goes through some peoples' heads (well I know the answer, but damn, lol)


This is just a vent, I see this stuff on here from time to time, and I usually dont post. But this one finally made me say something.

Out of ALL the stereotypes , ive NEVER had one ;proven' to me. Like i know whites who cant/dont ride bikes ... and i know black people who dont/cant ... its a PEOPLE thing , not a race thing. Just like white people and dancing ... its not a race thing -- its rythm thing lol and anyone can / cannot have it.

Stereotypes suck lol.

Thats excatly it! I guess its frustrating to me when people think that these ignorant comments dont feed into racism at some point.

Yep. Name any stereotype towards one race & i bet you'll get 100s of people saying 'oh , i know so & so who does that too/doesnt do that too & theyre (this race)' ... i hate stereotypes more then anything.

The thing is, they dont know EVERY person in a certain race, so to assume things like that is (IMO) just stupid
