Myths: Just a thought

There are a many myths circulating concerning just every day people and I am here to say that sh#@ ain’t true! I’m not saying that this is the gospel, but this has been my experience based on personal accounts and observations:

Black people don’t support each other

Native Americans are extinct

Africans think that they are better than African Americans

African Americans think that they are better than Africans

All Asians know some form of Karate

All Asians are smart

Most people from the Middle East and North Africa are religious fanatics

If you have Italian heritage you are probably connected with the Mafia

White men can’t fight

White people are mostly rich and very few are on welfare

Black women are easy to sleep with

Black women are evil and extremely unreasonable

Latinos are baby making machines

Most young Latino men are affiliated with a gang

Irish people drink too much

People from the India don’t use deodorant

Finally, most Black people are for Reparations and Affirmative Action

Please, if you can think of anymore please share. Let's expose the lies! Peace~

Thanks Danny and anon. I try to get to know individuals for who they are and not based on cultural sterotypes. Danny, 17 is good place to start. Thanks.

Touche Winter Doll. :) If you dig far enough in my past you will find some Native Americans and Scottish people. Unfortunately, the only side that I am more familiar with is the African part of me. Then again, that is what I am most proud of.
