Stereotyping Tip of the Day

Are you like me, and have a serious problem stereotyping people from around the world. What are the French known for? Crepes? Itialians, Pizza? German's, Chocolate? I'm not sure what us American's are know for, but I would put my money on either Baby Back Ribs or Candy Corn. Turns out, I don't know what I'm talking about, but thanks to The Prejudice Map I now have a clue. [sign of relief]

We shouldn't judge people based on nationality or other stereotype, but I do think that many stereotypes come from common trends that actually exist. And sometimes there's a fine line between true social norms for an area and the dreaded stereotype.

I disagree! we should judge more often!

nationality and stereotype are just two of the many reason we should judge people! (crazy drunken irish!)

in fact, I propose that, beginning today, we start adding new criteria to judge people on. We can add one per day. I suggest that today, we start judging people according to their favorite color. (take that, turquoise lovers!)
