Race is a huge controversy in the united states. Everywhere we look we see different races from all over the world by just living in the United States. Even though the United States were founded by immigrants for immigrants we still have this hatred towards them. As we have more hatred towards immigrants and other races we start to form racism against another. From racism we start to make up stereotypes about other races which can range from good to bad depending what is the stereotype.
As seen in movie, television shows, and in reality people use stereotypes all the time without even noticing. We think of stereotypes to be often true. Yet they might have some truth to them doesn't make them entirely true. The two most known stereotype are for African Americans and Asian Americans. These two bring us the most stereotypes of them all because we believe that most of the stereotypes to be true. For example all black people are good at basketball. This might be true in some cases but you can't say this for all the black people. The same goes for Asian people. One of the stereotypes for Asians is that their all good in math. This too is made off an assumption. Instead of saying they have a better education system in math in their country, they will rather go for all Asians are good in math. I have a video below about Asian stereotypes. It does have bad language so please don't be offended.
As a nation we are going to have to get used to the fact that we are all different and need to learn that as a nation we are all the same in our little ways. The only way to stop racism and stereotypes is not just ignore it but to confront it with one another and talk other it so that we are more conforable talking about it.
