    This is a one stop shop for talking about racism in America, and hey why not, the WORLD too!!!! icon_biggrin.gif


    Here's a little nugget from Undercoverman which perfectly sums up my views on the topic...ahem...

    Stereotypes exist because there is a kernel of truth. A particular trait that is attributed to a particular group must be exhibited by enough members of that group and witness by enough of the general population for a stereotype to be established. It's why people "get it." It's why comedians can make jokes about or do impressions of a particular group and the audience gets it. Do all the people in the group exhibit the particular stereotypical behavior? Of course not; however, enough of them do so that a stereotype takes hold.

    So yes, because the more effeminate of our gay brothers are the ones who can't hide their homosexuality, they get noticed by the community at large and thus a stereotype is born. If our masculine gay brothers have a problem with that they need to come out of the closet and be counted. Then maybe the stereotype will change.

    Since you brought up the racial aspect:

    When the prison population of African American males more closely reflects their numbers in the general population the stereotype of the criminal African American male will disappear.

    From Wikipedia:

    The criminal stereotype of African Americans in the United States is an ethnic stereotype according to which African American males are stereotyped to be criminal and dangerous. The figure of the African-American man as criminal has appeared frequently in American popular culture and it has been associated with racial profiling by law enforcement.

    Research in the United States has revealed a common perception that African-American males are more prone to commit, or more responsible for committing violent crimes in the country. This belief is supported by crime statistics. Per capita, African Americans are much more likely to commit and be arrested for crimes of violence than other racial groups.

    Stereotypes exist for a reason. No sense in burying your head in the PC sand and deny they don't. It helps no one except those who want to use them against everyone in the group.

    So that's what this is about? I agree! Obviously stereotypes dont start out of the blue, there is a reason for them based on repetitive behaviour.

    ... or ageist, or homophobic, or self-loathing, etc

    Funny how we only condemn judgments that we're guilty of

    Stereotypes

    One advantage of a stereotype is that it enables us to respond rapidly to situations because we may have had a similar experience before.

    One disadvantage is that it makes us ignore differences between individuals; therefore we think things about people that might not be true (i.e. make generalizations).

    The use of stereotypes is a major way in which we simplify our social world; since they reduce the amount of processing (i.e. thinking) <<<
    we have to do when we meet a new person.

    David, I never emailed you about your beliefs. In fact, what you say never really upset me. However, I did get on to you about emasculating Asian men. I mean not all them are pillow princesses.

    Also I been lurking on the forum so I been here, just haven't posted as much.
