Design Project: Racial Stereotyping11:59 AM
I am half Taiwanese and half American. I'm proud of both sides and embrace both cultures. This is kind of why I chose racial stereotyping as the theme for my newest school design project. I've never experienced extreme negative/positive stereotyping (thankfully). I actually grew up in a solely white family, far away from my Taiwanese side.
But there are still small things.
I think it happens WAY to much, sometimes unintentionally. And that's okay, I'm not blaming anyone. I just want to show people how wrong they are to make these assumptions.
So far I've talked about this on Goodreads, Twitter, and Facebook, but now it's time to talk to you lovelies about it too. :)
My first question is:
What race do I look like (there is no wrong answer here. You can say one, multiple, or none)?
Secondly, what are some common racial stereotypes that you've heard of, thought yourself, or heard someone say?
Please comment your answers! I'd love to hear from you and I won't be offended by anything you say (well I might be slightly. no promises ;) ) as long as you are honest but polite.
