I do like fried chicken though....
Stereotyping can be a form of racism when it involves races. That is the difference.
Totally agreed. A stereotype like all black people are thugs or whatever is racist because it's discriminating against black people.
If saying black people love fried chicken is stereotyping, then that must mean that saying black people have dark skin is also stereotyping.
But saying black people have dark skin is a FACT, which makes it neither racist nor stereotyping. If they didn't have dark skin, they'd be...well, they'd be white.
What about albino black people?
But black people loving fried chicken is also a fact.
Because each and every single one of the 1,000,000,000+ black people on planet Earth absolutely adore fried chicken.
Or just tautologistic...
But if someone says "black people love to eat fried chicken", I think it could be considered racist because they could saying they like fried chicken BECAUSE they're black.
Well derp. But liking fried chicken doesn't make their race inferior, does it?
thank you! so many people at my school always say things are racist when its really just stereotyping.
But can't stereotyping be a by-product of racism?
Yes, but there's still a distinction to be made between the two.
But everyone loves fried chicken.
