Why is it that white people aren’t stereotyped when a white person does something stupid?
Every day I come on here, there’s some poster who has an experience with a person of a particular race, and then feels the need to ask why everyone of that race does X.
“My Indian colleague was very aggressive to me. Why are Indians so aggressive?”
“I had a Chinese interviewer ask me weird questions. Why do Chinese people do this?”
Just off the top of my head, and just last week, I had a white coworker come 30 minutes late into our team’s most important monthly meeting without telling anyone, and also had another white coworker come into work smelling strongly of weed. I, like most reasonable people, didn’t automatically assume that their ethnicity had something to do with those actions.
Why is it then that people regularly and consistently do this when it comes to non whites?
