Now I know stereotypes can be an unfair judgment on someone. Just because a person is of a certain gender, race, or religion does not mean one can assume to know how they act, think, or behave. With all this being said stereotypes DO evolve from a certain overwhelming characteristics that a group may have.
I was at the park today signing both my son and daughter up for football in the fall here in Long Beach CA. I noticed one of the coaches there wearing a Chelsea FC t-shirt. I slowly walk over to him and at attempt to start up a conversation. Not even 5 seconds after hearing that I am a Newcastle United supporter his eye brows lowered and he looked me up and down to size me up. He then had turned into a guy that suddenly had more important things to do. As he walked away from me while I was in mid sentence I heard him mumble “at least you’re not a Manchester Moron.”
Since I am not a Manchester Moron I didn’t chase after him. But as I went walking back to my car a huge smile went across my face. Some stereotypes are very close to being 100% true: CHELSEA FANS REALLY ARE BITCHES!
