There are many demeaning stereotypes that our nation has adapted throughout history. For example, women are typically judged as weak, which is why the phrase “you can’t loose to a girl” is so prevalent among children. These stereotypes are often applied to people of a different race, color, or religion, and it has become almost a social norm to disregard the opinions or feelings of others for the entertainment of our peers. Because we have grown accustom to this being a part of our history we don’t understand that people take offense to jokes criticizing them for no reason, or criticizing their culture/the way they grew up. These stereotypes have been a part of our society for many years, and generation after generation adapt them to their everyday lives.
