To me, they can be funny, I ment stereotypes toward others that're ment to be taken seriously. I do know they are a joke and I don't believe them, I am just saying that it CAN hurt other people. I understand saying them as a joke at times, saying them ALL THE TIME to hurt someone is stupid and pointless. While I personaly dins them funny and I even say a few myself, you must admit that after being told over and over about your stereotype, it's aggravating.

So where is the difference between stereotypes and racism? Saying all black people eat fried chicken sounds to me, as a white person, quite racist. However I am white so what would I know? Go find a black person though and tell them that, see what their reaction is, get back to us. I'd be genuinely intruiged to see how thing go for you. It doesn't matter if you don't believe your bullshit stereotypes, they still have the power to offend and stereotypes are a very sensitive issue for all races/genders/ethnicities ect.

STFU. You wouldn't go up to someone and say "Hey I just had a dumb black girl moment!" or "It's ok, You are a Jew, you are allowed to act dumb and ignorant" so why is it ok to assume and treat me like I am some dumb ditzy silly thing? It is fustrating when people don't take you seriously.

THIS.

I'm naturally a very dark brunette (borderline black) and since the end of June I've lightened up my hair to a strawberry blonde, and then last night I bleached it to an extremely light blonde (and it's not fried~~), and one guy I know repeatedly makes dumb blonde jokes at me. If I do something clueless or dumb, he asks if some of the dye may have seeped into my head and other shit like that.

Sure I make dumb blonde jokes at myself in humor but that just irks me when other people do it to be insulting.

At a party, a friend of mine offered up (ceremoniously, not like passing a plate around) a black friend of ours a whole watermelon and some grape soda.

My black friend punched the watermelon.

I don't know, your post just reminded me of that time.

Redhead jokes get pretty annoying as well, though I'm sure you blondes get jokes far more frequently than I.

Just the other day some dude at a vendor's booth at a con was like, "Hey, you know the difference between a redhead and a terrorist? --You can reason with a terrorist!"
The fuck?
Leave me alone, brah.


And @StrawberrySiren, I would have punched that watermelon too, had I been there...and...well...black.

There are.
And apparently they're mostly about us being angry and scary.

Agreed. Heavily overused.

Yea mostly about how redheads have "terrible tempers"

But personally I think if ya'll get offended by Blonde jokes you need thicker skin....seriously we just made it a point that race stereotypes are far worse and far more offensive. Be glad you're just teased slightly for your hair.

the only redhead joke I have ever made was at my friend campbell, he said I was weird and I shouted, "At least I'm not a ginger!"
I got so much applause. xD

and I personally find stereotypical JOKES hilarious. Now the serious note (like the jackass philosophy of girls=Kitchen/sandwich) irks me. But if it's an, "Oh kandler bluhbluhbluh a white girl" then I'll laugh.

Another 'taken seriously' stereotype that I hate is all cheerleaders are sluts/attention whores/full of themself. 'Scuse me?

haven't you ever thought that those chicken restaurants were there because, oh I don't know? People like fried chicken?

There's also the more direct hair/fire comparison.

I really wish my hair would do, like, a Hades-type thing when I'm angry, just to give credence to these jokes. (And because it would be pretty sweet.)

School stereotypes are the stupidest and most groundless...just because I wore black I was devil worshipper? Yea, ok man...
