Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race


with one comment

Before taking this class, I never realized the significance that stereotypes play in our generation. Until recently, I did not recognize to what extent people made such blunt comments regarding stereotypical racial statements. A few days ago I was talking to one of my friends about the different ways that guys approach girls in the club and she made the statement that she has never cared for hispanic men because they are always very forward and act as if they can approach a girl in any manner that they want, and when a girl turns them down they continue to bother her. What is ironic about this statement is that she herself is hispanic, yet still makes this generalization. That, in itself, made me realize how much people have conformed to sterotypes, even about their own race.

  1. There will always be stereotypes made about other people. It is sad for people to make judgments about other people especially if they do not even know them. Judging a book by its cover means you will always miss out on something good. Just because one guy approach girls a certain way do not mean that is how all Hispanic guys approaches girls.
