Asian girls are the terrible drivers

In my whole life, I have been wondering why people could judge others by their ethnicity. I acknowledge that races were ranked based on intellectual and moral standards according to our ancestry. Hence, some ethnicities would rank themselves as superior and others as inferior. However, according to the Gene Denby NPR report, as the younger generations are getting diverse, “these sorts of older historical disparities would just disappear.” Then, so why do people still use obsolete stereotypes to judge others? When I told my peers that I was going to take my driving test, they said: “You are an Asian girl, so you won’t pass the test. And even if you could pass the test, you are still a terrible driver.” We are different, but physically, not intellectually.
