At number five on the charts, Russians are blunt and serious. I favor this one because its a misconception that people think but do not always say. Yes, it is apart of their cultural to show minimal expression, to them as a people it comes off as impolite. This could be true but for some Russians not all or maybe those not born actually in Russia this rule of thumb has begun to phase out. My main point I have a class mate who is always smiling and laughing even at times others when others do not get this sense of humor. Or my mother being someone who can contest this, there is a Russian doctor who works in her office who most often can not keep a stern face. I picked this as one of my favorites because its common enough to those who may read up on current times, but uncommon to those who only listen to what they hear.
This has grown to be one of my favorites, because this addresses the broad theory of Mexicans or Latinos but also some little things may get over looked. But what I have heard for my self is that a lot of Latinos may be hood or gangster. More often then not in high criminality its always a few Latinos " throwing up gang signs" or " repping a certain color. When actually they have the same values as any hard working class family. Just trying to achieve the american dream. I say this a favorite of mine because now a days you see more a more Latinos just apart of growing community's.
More often as a "young person " I get told this comment only for it not to be true. All black people listen to rap music or hip hop, I feel this has become one of my favorites, honestly because I know I am along with a lot of others can contest this. Yes, every now and again I may listen to a well liked rapper but I also listen to pop artist and even some of my friends listen to country. The biggest point being just because as a group of colored people making up a high stream industry of music , people i.e. white people just see a black person. Its easier for them to say you like rap then hold a conversation and really find out something different. Being confined to only one parameter gets annoying. If I were to be put on the spot I probably would not be able to tell someone the most recent rap song out. And once voicing this point to others, even some black people then it turns into me hearing phrases , " You are not really black " or "Are you sure your not mixed ? ".
At the top of my favorites is ; All Muslims are terrorist . When mainly all people think this with out hesitation going with the belief " ONE BAD APPLE SPOILS THE BUNCH". Grouping a whole race of people as a monsters confines them as a people to the few things they are accepted to do by other races and nations. Still I could only guess to them its a little demeaning. Living life always being looked funny and as being a apart of a race who is also strongly prayed upon, in some ways its relatable. This article shows that even though a strong amount of Muslims are in fact compliant yet have to conform just to keep "low profile". Also more often then not Muslims are referred to as Arabs in stead of their rightful ethnicity by so many Americans only because we don't see the harm in our ignorance.
This is a sad story about The Sewol ferry, carrying 476 passengers, mostly youth from one high school in Ansan, South Korea capsized. Aboard mainly high school students, 174 rescued, 175 dead and 127 missing. South Korea is a nation here Confucian culture is strong , which young people are taught to respect the older generation. A " culture of obedience", this is a strong stereotype through out America in the way of just a lot of people believing Koreans along with Asians have the most smartest and obedient children . When in some cases this can be proven true but this is on of my favorite stereotypes only because sadly in this case this stereotype can be debated as false. If a cultural so strong and smart how is it that ship gets over turned and there are untouched life boats and a captain that jumped ship. Now its known that the captain is supposed to go down with the ship before the welfare of others. This DID NOT HAPPEN, also with kids so smart you would want them to up hold this cultural that cased them their lives instead of going off instinct or their brains and try to save them self's.
