Jews are Greedy Report Abuse
Probably one of the largest community of givers in the world. The culture believes in tithing (giving 10% of their gross income to their house of God). In no way is that greedy!

Not all Americans are fat- I'm American and quite skinny. Yes, a lot of America is becoming a couch-potato, but all schools have one hour of Physical Education every day, and I am involved in softball and soccer almost every day. In my spare time, I do relax on my phone and watch TV, but not all Americans are fat!

Actually, only 9% of terrorist attacks have been by muslim or arab people. Also, technically the U.S. and other countries, once they have beat these "terrorist countries" down, are the terrorist themselves. We just dont call them that because they are the winners.

There are the radicals and then theres the rest of the Arab pop. dont judge every Arab u see pass by in a hajab or with a beard and think they'll kill u or something, but its still okay to have fear everyone does but not every Arab is like the radicals--they believe they will be rewarded by God and the prophets for killing people.

all latinos came from mexico and came here iligaly with the swine flu Report Abuse
because this is true ... and i am from mexican decent and i hear thiss all the time
12 points - added 6 years ago by guest - 1 comment
Comments:
No and no. All Latino based people do not come from one country. That is just plain ignorant. Latino is not even a single race, it is a combination of races residing in Latin America, specifically in the US. African American, Caucasian, Asian, Native American, etc. Any combo of those can be considered Latino. Full bred Mexicans are considered Hispanic, which is the definition of Spanish speaking countries formerly ruled by Spain. Latino and Hispanic are two different ideas to differentiate two classes of people. As for the swine flu, that is trying to find someone to blame.

Most Mexicans are Illegal Report Abuse
Haven't met one yet who is illegal - do people really know anyone who is illegal? This is one of the worst stereotypes.
10 points - added 8 years ago by BrendaKaye - 2 comments
Comments:
Look, I'm not enforcing this stereotype. You're right. Most Mexicans are not here illegally. But in Arizona, it is still a big problem. I know two families here illegally, and they're all wonderful people. The majority of Mexicans are not illegal immigrants, but you can't deny the enormity of this problem.
Added 4 years ago by guest, 9 points Vote + to improve this comment's ranking Vote - to decrease this comment's ranking
From the look of it, two years since this was posted, I highly doubt the average US citizen even knows a person that knows illegal immigrants. So, it is easier to point out that most Mexicans are illegal, if not all of them at some point. I'm saying this with the authority of being Mexican born myself. My immediate family migrated here LEGALLY, earned our citizenship, and still get stereotyped. Funny thing is, my skin is pale as snow, practically come off as Caucasian, until I give out my name. Oops. C'est la vie, no?

Native Americans have long hair and live in reservations. Report Abuse
Not all Natuve Americans live in tepees, have red skin, live in reservations. The stereotype not only effects Natives but it can also effect non Natives. The movies and the R-words usually leave Natives with the anxiety and the verbal bullying of being told that they are not Native by their looks.
