Re: Laughing at National and Regional Stereotypes

I found this on suicides... Looks like anyway it's Lithuania I just read few years ago about Tromso being the city with the highest number of self-taking life away. Though through few years such things may change.

Re: Laughing at National and Regional Stereotypes

Americans talk exactly the way they do in Hollywood movies: "so totally OMG like whateverrr!!!" Don't get me wrong - I love Americans, especially the way they pronounce "Jaguar" ("JAG-WAR" instead of "JAG-YOU-ARE")

Re: Laughing at National and Regional Stereotypes

Posted by zicofirol: Here is a list of stereotypes:

1. White american hicks and whitetrash love WWE
-many do. They also love NASCAR.

3. Jews are good at business and anything related to money
- the diamond district here is run by Jews. Is that a stereotype?

6. English peole have very bad teeth
- A lot of them do

7. French people stink (because they dont take showers everyday)
- Many do

10. Black people like watermelon and fried chicken.
- Many of them do

11. Germans are racist
- some are

13. Asians eat dogs
- some asian countries do

So my question becomes: why are these facts referred to as "stereotypes"?

I think it's assumed that the word 'all' should go before each of those stereotypes, becasue after all aren't stereotypes just generalisations that everyone in a country/culture has specific traits? Therefore 'all Germans are racist' would probably be what's implied.

Because they only have partial truths to them. That's why when say people stereotype Americans as being loud and obnoxious, it's generally understood not all 260 million Americans are like that (at least I don't think so).

And LMAO at the "Asians eat dogs" bit. Please name "some" Asian countries that butcher and stir fry their pooches. And no, isolated cases don't count if we're gonna equate "dog eating" with "countries"

Yeah, I put that before...

People think that all Argies are Boca fans, love Tango, have long hair and mullets and wear headbands. They think also that all love violent football players and are violent when cheering too.

Not true, hope no one thinks I believe in this.

Haitians are all into voodoo.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

It never has been true about Tromsø being a suicide capital of the world per capita.
