You realised that we give you Podolski and Klose (they both have Polish roots or one Polish parent, but live in Germany for more than 20 years) and you may not make that stereotype anymore because we gifted Germany

But it is true that many people from East come to Germany and steal something or make crime. So you can not saying that it is wrong stereotype.

Russians

- Rude
- Surly
- Crazy drunken xenophobes
- Russian women want everything to be paid for them by the man
- Russian women only like Westerners so they can leave Russia
- Everyone wears fur coats and hats and the cold winters are impossible to survive
- Anyone with money is either ex KGB or mafia
- They play the balalaika

It's a bigger deal. Not that easy. Education is what's missing here, and politicians don't give a damn about it.

I don't know about other countries, but here in Brazil, Portuguese people are said to be unintelligent, ignorant people. Example of jokes:

How many Portugueses are necessary to change a light bulb?
- Five: one to step on the table and four to rotate it.

How many Portugueses are necessary do sink a submarine?
- Two: one to knock on the door, and one to open it.

The same jokes are told in Argentina referring to the Galicians (gallegos).

People in Argentina think Mexican and Bolivian women are ugly.
We also think Germans, Russians, English, Escandinavians are very cold people.

Well it doesn't help much when a Brasilian costumer I had a few years ago, insisted with me that he had the Taxis for free, just because he had a coupon that said, "Tax free". I don't think he ever got what I was trying to explain, and left thinking I was fooling him. You know, sometimes I think we don't speak the same language.

So this asinine stereotype is masking the fact that the source of lower test scores is not a lack of intelligence in the black community, but the inability of our current systems to help those whose standards of living need to be raised in order for children to have an environment in which their potential can be maximized.
I'm black (as if you didn't know ) and I wasn't raised in the best neighborhoods. I moved a lot when I was under 10. I lived with just my mom, so I couldn't afford private school, extra lessons, tutors, or a comfortable experience that my white counterparts had. But, I worked hard with what I was given, and when I was 14, I went to an advanced high school, one that in the top 10% of schools in the US and one of only two 5 star schools in Louisiana.

I'm now a National Achievement Semifinalist, which is an extremely honorable and competitive scholarship competion for black students. To qualify, I had to take, and do well on, the P.S.A.T., which is a practice for the SAT. I got a 185, which puts me in the top 1% of black students in the country. Although the National Merit program is more inclusive (top 1% of ALL races), I'm still in the top 15-20% of high schoolers, which is an achievement in itself. But because of that, I'm probably just top 75% in the world.

You know all Americans are the dumbest in the world?

More Southern American stereotypes:

- We've have sex with our cousins
- We eat deep fried flour for dinner
- We're :retard:
- We're the dumbest part of the country (Actually, we have the highest number of National Merit and Achievement kids from the country. The Midwest has the least number )
- We all like country music
- We aw-yall hayve accentz 'in we tawk ssssssssssllllllllllllooooooooowwwwww
- This is true: Louisiana has the best food in the world. Even our McDonald's taste better. Hands

Default Re: Laughing at National and Regional Stereotypes

You Know You're From Louisiana When

The crawdad mounds in your front yard have over taken the grass.

You greet people with "Howzyamomma'an'dem?" and hear back "Dey fine!"

Every so often, you have waterfront property.

When giving directions you use words like "uptown," "downtown," "backatown," "riverside," "lakeside," "other side of the bayou" or "other side of the levee."

When you refer to a geographical location "way up North," you are referring to places like Shreveport, Little Rock or Memphis, "where it gets real cold." It does get cold there

You've ever had Community Coffee.

You can pronounce Tchoupitoulas but can't spell it. chop-uh-TOO-lus

You don't worry when you see ships riding higher in the river than the top of your house.

You judge a po-boy by the number of napkins used.

The waitress at your local sandwich shop tells you a fried oyster po-boy "dressed" is healthier than a Caesar salad.

You can eat Popeye's, Haydel's and Zapp's for lunch and wash it down with Barq's and several Abitas, without losing it all on your stoop.

The four seasons in your year are: crawfish, shrimp, crab, and King Cake. I'm smelling king cakes soon. BTW, Most of us hate those cakes, they're filled with jam

You "wrench" your hands in the sink with an onion bar to get the crawfish smell off.

You don't learn until high school that Mardi Gras is not a national holiday. Wait.... it isn't? The why do I hear other people talk about it?

You believe that purple, green and gold look good together.

Your last name isn't pronounced the way it's spelled. I know plenty of Meloncon (meh-LAW-saw), Boudreaux (BOO-dro), Richard (ree-SHAR), Hebert (A-bear) and others

You know what a nutria rat is but you still pick it to represent your baseball team. I think that's our meat at Taco Bell

You have spent a summer afternoon on the Lake Pontchartrain seawall catching blue crabs. I did!! When I was 7

You describe a color as "K & B Purple." Our old drug store. Bought out by Rite-Aid

You like your rice and politics dirty.

You pronounce the largest city in the state as "Nawlins."

You know those big roaches can fly, but you're able to sleep at night anyway. It's allright, as long as you don't hear them bumping into the walls.

You assume everyone has mosquito swarms in their backyard.

You realize the rainforest is less humid than Louisiana. Where else in the world does the concrete sweat in the morning?

You learn that a seat belt makes a pretty good branding iron...

You discover that you can get a sunburn through your car window...

When out of town, you stop and ask someone where there is a drive-through Daiquiri place, and they look at you like you have three heads.

You have flood insurance.

Your burial plot is six feet over rather than six feet under.

You consider a Bloody Mary a light breakfast.

You push little old ladies out of the way to catch Mardi Gras throws.

You leave a parade with footprints on the top of your hands.

You have a parade ladder in your shed.

Your first sentence was "Throw me something mistah" and your first drink was from a go-cup.

You worry about a deceased family member returning in spring floods.

You reply to anything and everything about life here with "Only in Nahlins".

You have a monogrammed go-cup.

You get on a bus marked "Cemeteries" and don�t think twice.

You shake out your shoes before putting them on.

Your sunglasses fog up when you step outside.

No matter where else you go in the world, you are always disappointed in the food. I've been to Baltimore, DC, Orlando, Houston, Okla. City, Dallas, Mobile, Memphis, Atlanta, and New York... and the food sucks. Maybe it's because my mom is a chef and even my older brothers cook well.

You get up in the morning and start cooking a pot of rice before you give any thought to what you'll fix for dinner.

You ask, "How dey running?" and "Are dey fat?" when you're inquiring about seafood quality.

When it starts to rain, you cover your beer instead of your head.

You call tomato sauce "red gravy."

You eat sno-balls instead of throwing them. [Sno cones, sno balls.... same thing [/b]

Your house payment is less than your air conditioning bill.

Your grandparents are called "Maw Maw" and "Paw Paw." All 4 of my died before I was born

You fall asleep to the soothing sounds of four box fans. Just one oscillating one, with it fixed on me on high, instead of it oscillating... even in winter

No one eats healthy. Fried Batter is actually a menu item in some restaurants. Told you [/b]

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Louisiana.
