The One Brown Girl Challenge




Thursday, September 17, 2009
Stop Generalizing & Stereotyping.
"White people hate President Obama."
"Black people hate White people."
"Asian people hate Black people."
"Latin people all live together."
"Immigrants don't contribute."
You've probably heard these [ridiculous] statements and more. Of course it is true that some people hate other people, but these blanket statements simply aren't true. Maybe you even say them without giving it a second thought. Challenge yourself to consider thinking before you blurt out a generalization or a stereotype. Enough already.
