I'm pretty sure that you've heard this being said before to a Jewish person: "You like pennies", "Want a penny?", "Got a penny?" and "Want a penny?"
Yes, it seems funny, HAHAHA. But no, it's not. It's not funny at all. It really, really makes me angry when people say that. They call the Jewish cheap and things like that and it's not right.
That's a stereotype. There are other ones like: Asian and Brown people are all smart. NOT TRUE. Sure, there are many Asian and Brown people who are smart, but there are also some REALLY DUMB Asian and Brown people. Also, White people are all nerdy and boring. Not true. There are so many white people that I know who are awesome. Like my BFF Jasmine for example. Also, Black people are ghetto and love friend chicken and(oh, god the worst ever) love Kool Aid. EW, NO. I hate Kool Aid. I love fried chicken though. But, really, who doesn't love friend chicken?! Other than vegetarians(God bless you all).
These stereotypes have got to stop. I know that this post will not make the entire world change, but it may change some of my readers. Do not rely on stereotypes. Most of them are not true. Yes, you may THINK that Black guy is going to steal from your store, when really, he just wants to buy a chocolate bar. Yes, you may THINK that Asian guy's going to get 100% on his test, when really, he may fail so epicly that he won't make it out of school. But, the Asian kid sitting next to him might get that 100%. You don't know. Don't just assume things because of someone's color.
Okay? Okay. I'll shut up about that now. Here's a few quotes on racism that I really like(not that I like racism obviously, I'm black. But, because I like the quotes):
"God created one race: the human race. Humans created racism."
-Woman on the Oprah show that I don't know the name of.
"I am a 47 year old man and I don't understand. I was raised that if I shave my chin and cut myself and a black man does, if we put our blood in one cup, it's the same."
-A man on the Oprah show.
