As explained to me, there is a broad difference between Northern and Southern Spaniards. Northerners are typically more serious, men are ‘macho’, and women are colder. Southerners are partiers, nappers, very religious, and the men are notorious for gelling their hair. Throughout the movie, there were many moments of subtle, and overt prejudice against people depending on where they were from. In the United States, there are tons of stereotypes and prejudices. My view of stereotypes is probably skewed since I am primarily a Northerner, but I will try to remain objective. For example, southerners are typically depicted as friendly if you’re similar to them, but more conservative. Northerners are more accepting as a whole, and are generally more liberal. Another, easier way to distinguish Americans is to look at the conservative vs liberal debate. People who are conservative, typically devalue things that help make communities fully functional for all members. People who are liberal look out for all members of community, and step back from the capitalist approach of every man for himself. This doesn’t apply to all people who identify as either, but it is a general stereotype. This relates to Ocho Apellidos Vascos in the sense that two completely different people, who have political differences come together and fall in love. Maybe liberals and conservatives don’t fall in love per say- but they can work together.

This stereotype really irks me because it is an insult to my friends and me. My friends are just as successful, healthy, and educated as me, if not more than myself.

Burro Genius was a book I will always remember; it reminds me of my childhood well not the bullying part, but the environment like the ranch and horses having nothing to stress about. My parents were Mexican just like his, which gives us much in common I love being a Mexican American, nor I never questioned myself on why god made me Mexican on the other half Victor Villaseñor did mention in his book titled, “Burro Genius,” “Oh my Lord God, Papito!” I screamed, “WHY DID YOU LET ME BE BORN MEXICAN?” (70).

The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology associated with the University of Chicago describes research developed by University of Chicago psychologists Katherine Kinzler and Jasmine DeJesus indicated how the South is rated high in pleasantness. Based on the idea that attitudes towards Northern versus Southern speech tend to emerge in the early school years, 9 to 10-year-old children living in both Illinois and Tennessee where studied for cultural stereotypes. It’s not just adult individuals who stereotype someone as “sweet” and “dimwitted” for having a drawl. The results reported that Northern-accented individuals sounded “smarter” and “in charge”, whereas Southern-accented individuals sounded “nicer”. Consequently, “children endorsed both positive and negative stereotypes about their own groups, instead of evaluating their own group in a relatively more positive light for every attribute”.

All Asians are good at math, all blondes are dumb, all Muslims are terrorists - these are all common stereotypes. Without even realizing it, stereotypes have undeniably played an enormous role in individual lives. Minds seem to already set a certain image in them based on the people they encounter. People judge others by their skin tone, ethnicity, and physical appearance unconsciously, and this have been proven by many social experiments. Of course, though these stereotypes might be accurate at times, there are situations where they are completely defied.

Americans Stereotypes: Loosening stereotypes Americans are always scared when they see a black man and think about them trying to harm them. Actually, that isn’t always the case and isn’t the case a lot of the time. Brent Staples in his writing Black Men in Public Spaces shows some of the societies stereotype issues. Americans should stop stereotyping blacks, not purposely go around them at night, and he shouldn’t have to whistle to make people comfortable around him. Americans put stereotypes on different ethnicities.
Class Stereotypes Stereotypes are seen as overgeneralized ideas, images, or beliefs of a person based on a group of people. Stereotypes can either be taken or said in a negative or positive way but mostly seen in a negative way. Stereotypes are formed on a life experience, idea or a belief a person may have towards one person based on the person’s gender, race, religion or social class. The most common stereotypes are of the social classes which are the: upper, middle and lower class.
There are countless reported negative American stereotypes and I honestly struggled tremendously to find a stereotype that I identified with. However, I would say cultural ignorance is a negative American stereotype I can actively work to address as our class travels internationally. Researching cultural ignorance more in-depth will aid in my understanding and appreciating diverse cultural perspectives, the importance of historical knowledge, and the complexity of communication amongst different cultures as I travel to Europe. Cultural ignorance is when an individual shows a lack of understanding of other cultures in terms of history, society, government, and much more. This lack of knowledge and understanding can easily be interpreted as a lack of respect for the culture or country and even ethnocentrism in the more extreme examples.
Just like people learn to make a lower standard into a higher standard these people can learn from the stereotypes. So by looking at all these categories and using those to the advantage of the people then the American people can use this to their advantage. But this is all dependent on the people of America and possibly all of the
