BLACKS :One of the more common stereotype examples is stereotypes surrounding those who are Black. Saying that all Blacks are good at sports is a stereotype, because it’s grouping the race together to indicate that everyone of that race is a good athlete.

  • Men are strong and do all the work.
  • Men are the "backbone."
  • Women aren't as smart as a man.
  • Women can’t do as good of a job as a man.
  • Girls are not good at sports.
  • Guys are messy and unclean.
  • Men who spend too much time on the computer or read are geeks.

  • All white Americans are obese, lazy, and dim-witted. Homer Simpson of the TV series The Simpson's is the personification of this stereotype. 
  • Mexican stereotypes suggest that all Mexicans are lazy and came into America illegally.
  • All Arabs and Muslims are terrorists.
  • All people who live in England have bad teeth.
  • Italian or French people are the best lovers.
  • All Blacks outside of the United States are poor.
  • All Jews are greedy.
  • All Asians are good at math. All Asians like to eat rice and drive slow.
  • All Irish people are drunks and eat potatoes.
  • All Americans are generally considered to be friendly, generous, and tolerant, but also arrogant, impatient, and domineering. 
this is a list of stereotype's that we use in America from what we say about black people, and stereotype's about men and women and how we look at different cultures.

America XXL

People around the world say everything in America is big, bigger than the rest of the world. With our over sized portions on food, and our extremely huge house that some times only a few people live in. Also Americans buy huge gas guzzling cars such as big Ford Trucks and Range Rover SUVS also people don't just have one SUV but many. However, Not all American are this way. Some try to  save the planet and drive hybrid cars. But I believe that the stereotype of everything being XXL on our food. America as a nation is fat and we created fast food which is full of salt and other bad things that we shouldn't put in are bodies. This stereotype is true some times because not everyone in America eats fast food or  eats over sized portions  nor does everyone   drive a SUV but alot of people do. That's why  people from other countries look at our country this way. They look at what they see on TV and the Internet and believe what they see. But personally I belive that America is XXL because we do drive huge cars, and have huge food portions, everything in America is big and we are famous for our music and events that show the world that we are the super power.

People look at America from other parts of the world and the first thing they think of is Fried Chicken and a big mac are country is the king of fast food the most obese nation in the world. We bring all these fast food places to other countries and show them are ways. all of these country when you ask some a question about America the first thing they usually tell you is McDonald's or hamburger and french fries. This is one of many America's Stereotypes. Even though American people are poor we will still  tend to eat a lot and spend are money(government money) on fast food companies that make unhealthy food that kills Americans day by day.

The movie crash that was put out in the year 2004 The film is about racial and social tensions in Los Angeles, California. And goes through different scenes with people who get accused of certain things because the color of their skin or Culture this movie shows Rather than separating the characters into victims and offenders, victims of racism are often shown to be racist themselves in different contexts and situations. During one scene it shows how cops can be racist towards African America's an other scene shows how people assume Mexican are gang members because they way the look or because the tattoos they have on their body. This movie shows what happens in the day to day life in the city that we live in

In this image shows other countries look at  America and believe that cops just sit around and eat donuts like they see in the movies. This is a stereotype is not true because coming a police officer is hard work and i never see cops getting donuts at the local coffee shop. This stereotype became a stereotype because, in old American films that took place in the late 1970s towards the 1990s always had cops eating donuts when they were waiting for a call or something to happen.In America we also think cops eat alot of donuts but, in reality majority of the cops are in great shape and would never ear donuts its a stereotype that we use in America and what we see in movies.(DO NUT MESS WITH A COP)

American Stereotypes

This is how other countries look at America since we brought McDonald's all around the world so people think we just eat it everyday and look at us because we are so fat. Other countries look at us and we have huge house in the picture they compare it to Canada and Canada is a igloo. Other countries look at us and think we all have guns, and we worship wall mart this is a stereotype about America which is wrong because where i live there is no wall mart near me i don't own a gun and i rarely eat McDonald's.  other countries look at America and assume with out coming and checking it out for themselves.

Jersey shore DRAMA BAD TV

This image is the MTV reality show jersey shore that was on from 2009 to 2012 this show portrays the party and club life style with Guido Italian Americans living on the jersey shore. in my opinion I don't think this show shows what Americas Italians are like, but it could show people from other countries on what people who grew up and live on the Jersey shore are like.This show is filled with drama and more drama so that could also be an American stereotype saying that Americans love drama. and entertained themselves with it. reality shows are all over American TV now and the Jersey shore cast all got famous from doing this show. They got famous from just partying and starting drama bad TV can be Americas stereotype.

South Park is it racist?

South Park has many stereotypes basically in every episode. This show racially explodes races in different  comedy skits/episodes. the first episode was in 1997.In this show  they make fun of celebrities also religions and raises from making fun of Jews and all the way to Asians..The characters Cartman, Stan, Kenny, and kyle. Cartman always makes fun of kyle because he is Jewish. there is an also an episode when cartman gives a speech to the school about ginger kids and how they are non human and have no souls. This shows jokes around with stereotypes and raise in every episode. South park shows other countries how Americans joke about raise and when other people come here they think its okay to act in these ways.  my opinion is that south park is a hilarious show that I've been watching for a long time, and as an American i don't take the stereotypes and rascally jokes seriously i think it's a different kind of humor.

This image is America shaped in words.  and about how people in America look at other states around the country.  California is the life of the party, because every other state thinks all people in California do is party. Florida is where old people go to retire so it says Old Peeps. This is stereotyping different American states from the people that live in our America  that think they know what every state is about, but these cant all be true because not every person in Florida is old but the rest of the country looks at it like that. The south says Obesity Epidemic and right above it says fried chicken this is an assumption that all people in the south eat fried chicken and are over weight. stereotyping happens with in our own country. also people that are not from this country could look at this picture and descide what america is like just from the words they can make assumptions on Amercian society.

The Golden ARCHES

I selected this image because it shows how other societies look at America. Are nation is fast food capital of the world, the land of the golden arches. In America one and four Americans will visit a fast food restaurant every day. America is an obese country thanks to all these fast food chains. It's Americas Stereotype. Even are portion sizes are bigger then from around the world. Other countries look at us though this picture from the image. These fast food chains are around the world now, so we Americanize other countries around the world.
