Has anyone else noticed that white men are stupid?

I do not believe this personally, I am just commenting on a long trend I have noticed. In home security commercials the menacing robber is always a white man. In situations where one man is making good decisions and another making bad decisions, the one making a bad decision is always a white man and many times the man making a good decision is black. I am not offended particularly, nor am I championing this trend, I am just wondering if anyone else noticed?

Some men are very bright, but I think the Y chromosome messes with them sometimes.

All four males in my home have male pattern blindness. They can't see stuff that is right in front of them. If I weren't there, they would have no socks and forty jars of mayonnaise.

I've noticed that in general all men in sitcoms and commercials are idiots and the women are the heroes of the situation.

Haven't noticed that. I HAVE noticed, for many years, the trend of the wives being much smarter than their husbands. Heck, that goes back to the Honeymooners!

I have indeed noticed that TV has long used the white guy as a buffoon. 

If they cast the "black guy", or the "other ethnic guy", or the woman as the buffoon, they would be clobbered by the NAACP and similar activist organizations.

So, short of putting a paper bag over the buffoon's head, they are stuck with the white guy as the only safe foil for their comedy ...

I seriously doubt that being dumb or smart has ANYTHING to do with the color of a person's skin ... OR with their age or gender !!

Yes but if they used a Hispanic or black man as the thief they would be called racist on the news worldwide.
