I was wondering today where steriotyping came from. You know whites are racist, Jewish girls are frigid, blacks like fried chicken and watermellon, Polish people are dumb, Irish are drunks. I’m sure there are others but I was just wondering how it all got started.
What got me thinking about this is, in the town I live in within the last year two new gas stations were opened. The kind with the little grocery stores in them as well as a little franchise eatery inside.
In the predominantly white area of town the gas station there has a sub-sandwich shop.
In the predominately black area of town the gas station there has a fried chicken shop.
Do you think that is just a coincidence or good marketing?
