    What are some stereotypes that you know of? From anywhere really, your city, your town?

    - The French think they're the center of the universe.
    - Asians are super smart
    - English people drink tea & have bad teeth
    - Irish are alcoholics.
    - Serbians are violent and dangerous
    - Indians work at a deli.
    - Indians drive taxi. (Well, in Australia, that's a stereotype)

    I don't think that's unfair stereotype :p. But seriously, there are a few big ones around here.

    -black people are afraid of water
    -Asian people are always good at math
    -if your Vietnamese you will always be drawn to doing nails (my friend has a half sister who had a Vietnamese father, and she was raised by his mother and somehow still managed to end up doing nails for a living :lol:)
    -all native Americans are always drinking

    I know they usually aren't accurate, but they stick around.

    That would be a little chunky.


    Texans wear boots, stetsons and ride horses everywhere.

    Asians study hard, do all their homework, etc.

    White men can't jump

    French people eat gross food, and convince everyone else it's a delicacy

    Mexicans are poor

    Black people are athletic

    People from the south (in the US) aren't intelligent

    Most accurate one up there! :p

    Germans are efficient.
    Germans are fat and jolly.
    Germans have no sense of humour.
    Germans are obsessed with sex.... and good at it too.

    I guess they have to have some positive stereotypes mixed in with the bad ones! :p

    As for regional ones....

    People from Dublin 4 are pretentious bastards
    people from Limerick stab people
    people from Kerry have sex with sheep.

    I'm from kerry.... and live in limerick. and it's all true! i'm a busy guy....

    Well the saying goes "Co. Kerry: Where men are men, and the sheep are scared."...
