"That's why western media controls the world. "default" human is White, as defined by whites. That's why stereotypes really don't exist for them. Without stereotypes, there are no glass ceilings either. So they maintain control."

Kleptin claims that there are absolutely no stereotypes of whites, however, I'm sure there are other races that have stereotypes of my race. I'd love to hear them.

Also some analysis of stereotypes creating a "glass ceiling"

I would say the most infamous stereotype for white males is.... They can't dance.

I hate stereotypes of whites. It's so tiresome how everyone assumes I am some rich, athletic, genius who is constantly defending civilisation against the Jews. Only part of that is true.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

What now Kleptin? That's 170 some stereotypes. I listed like 8 asian ones.

Therefore the asians are the default human while whites have a glass ceiling due to these stereotypes.

China controls us.

Plus, the stereotype is that blacks are more athletic than whites.

He said there aren't really stereotypes of whites. I think that means there aren't any oppressive stereotypes the way there are for certain minorities. Asians and Jews don't qualify for the same reason even though they are minorities. There are tons of studies that seem to validate certain stereotypes for black/hispanics; for instance, the one that showed people with "black sounding" names only got called back for a job interview a minute fraction of the time that people with "white sounding" names did, etc.

That's incredibly ignorant. Of course there are white stereotypes. They typify 80% of black comedy skits!

Wait, jews don't count? There aren't real jewish stereotypes?
I did figure it out tho, jews like circumcision because they like when things are 30% off.

"Based on our contacts with hundreds of Jews who do not circumcise in the United States and in countries around the world"
"Dispelling the myth outside of the Jewish community that all Jews circumcise"
f*ck whats that about?

White stereotypes are typically broken into different sectors (when in a negative way). Rednecks, Yoopers, Dincs (or Dinks). And then different stereotypes are applied to each subgroup.

And for the asians, they only need one stereotype which outweighs them all... Cho Yang has a tiny wang.

That's not necessarily racially motivated only. I know white people with hippy names like "Sunbow." You think that guy gets a lot of interviews? Funny thing about 'ole Sunbow, he's one of the most ghetto human beings I've ever know. The name and image do not match!

There is definitely a bias against unique names, period. Parents really need to think carefully when selecting names for their kids. Is it fickle of people to base something off of a name? Yes, but why even give bias a place to root?

I would say that the stereotypes of White people are rarely as negative as the stereotypes of other minorities. And in that regard, the "stereotypes" of whites seem harmless and easily dismissed whereas minorities cannot as easily escape their stereotypes. Of course, this is just my opinion based off of observation... I don't have any facts and figures to back it up. :P

That's not that bad as a stereotype. Fear is an awesome (and useful) tool for controlling others. :)

You're right :) Isn't there a blog called Stuff White People Like or something? Being stereotyped to drive Volvos is a lot different of a stereotype than being stupid, lazy or low class criminals.

Do note that the stereotypes that have been listed in this thread... well, they're not stereotypes, and they are not pervasive at all: I hadn't heard of the vast majority of the things listed here, besides maybe the whole "white people can't dance" thing.

Yes, I've seen categories that white people can often be placed in (e.g., the conservative republican), but no one jokingly thinks, "All white people are conservative Republicans." However, it IS in fact a common joke to say, for example, that all Asians are nerdy.

Moreover, the things listed in this thread, on top of not being wide-spread, are for the most part neutral... certainly not as malicious as the statement, "Black people are criminals."

From the youtube:

Swim with sharks?

Pay for they kids to go to college?

Hack computers?

Wear flip flops in any weather?

Eat sh*t they can't spell like asparagaugas?

A lot of those things sound incredibly badass.

As many people in this thread have already alluded to, white stereotypes are not as pervasive or negative as other racial stereotypes. I'd rather have someone think I can't dance than think I'm stupid, my brother must be in jail, I have no father, my family is poor, I'm uneducated, I'll never amount to anything, etc. I could go on.

On a side note, the site "Stuff White Peple Like" is quite funny.
