They might understand that it exists, but they wouldn't be able to recognize anything about it or talk about it in a meaningful way.
    perhaps because they are not 100 years old and are unfamiliar with blackface watermelon eating stereotypes, but are familiar with saggy jeans stereotypes. Until Obama got all bent out of shape about it, I did not know that the term "comeuppance" had anything to do with blacks at all--I thought it was a southern thing to do with smart assed kids.

    I think Sergio Garcia's comments were given far more attention than they deserved.

    His remarks were stupid but then again so was the reaction from Tiger Woods, the media, etc.

    Overall, I think most stereotypes are about as shallow as this one and getting worked up over it is equally shallow, so I'm indifferent as to whether being unaware of them is a good or bad thing as these are mostly things that people shouldn't be getting mad at anyway.

    I like fried chicken and watermelon, so I find it hard to view those as some kind of stereotype.

    Re: Is it a good thing to be oblivious of racial stereotypes?

    IMHO, I think the whole "getting offended" by some stereotype is ridiculous. the vast majority of stereotypes are based to some degree or another in truth.

    But, I guess it depends on the stereotype.


    stereotype: blacks are criminals = offensive
    stereotype: blacks like fried chicken = really? tell us something we don't know mother****er

    stereotype: white people can't dance = and???
    stereotype: white southerners **** their sisters = offensive


    still puzzled by the fact that it's more offensive to make a comment about fried chicken than it is to call someone a liar.

    The stereotypes being discussed are not obsolete ones that one must be 100 to have encountered. They are used all the time today.

    Until Obama got all bent out of shape about it, I did not know that the term "comeuppance" had anything to do with blacks at all--I thought it was a southern thing to do with smart assed kids.
    What are you talking about here and how does it relate to stereotypes?

    my brother's wife is Korean and she scares the livin hell out of me any time I have to ride with her. Not only is she a crappy driver...she's also borderline narcoleptic.
