Say man you play any ball for your school? Yes, I’m also on the honor roll. Stereotypes are used everyday towards all kinds’ of races. Stereotypes are a commonly held public belief about specific social groups or types of individuals. Here are some stereotypes towards Whites: short blond girls are always sluts; most white people are rich and are in power, they invented timeout to discipline their kids. As for Hispanics, most play soccer, speak Spanish, they work too hard, and they need to go back to where they came from? Now as for the Black, we could go all day about this.

Actually I hate playing soccer.” When I heard that I was stunned! In my mind all Hispanics play soccer. After I heard that all Hispanics don’t play soccer, I thought there is no way that some Hispanics don’t speak Spanish. Entering high school taking my first Spanish class I was shocked. There were more Hispanics than Blacks in my class. I thought it was a joke. Once I start asking around why they in here most of them said, “I don’t know Spanish fool”. Then I would say why not you are Hispanic you should know how too. They responded with well u should be suspended or dropped out of school by know. Now I have learned that all races don’t live up to their stereotypes that people give them. When you think of racism most people think of Blacks vs. Whites. Racism is the belief that race is a primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial difference produce an inherent superiority of a particular race. Anybody can be racist towards any race. What people don’t know
