Do you believe any? Do you think you can sterotype and it be harmless or even true to a point? What is a sterotype about your race that you have heard?

Do you think people mean to be rude when they say them. Such as asians can't drive or whites have no rhythm or blacks only speak in ebonics

Growing up I was often asked if my family was in the mafia.  Yes, the popular mafia at the time was Italian, but no, most Italians were not mafia.  Stereotypes are true to some of the population or it wouldn't have become a stereotype, but I think it is only true for a minority (even a tiny minority) of the particular population.

i think that sometimes we say things that we don't realize are rude until later on...but no i don't think everyone tries to be rude with a statement they make.

I get it I remember doing a paper in college on stereostypes and how when we discussed it most seem to think they were harmless.
