These stereotypes shouldn't limit our horizons at all. Break them. Thanks for such a powerful vid. You discuss the most interesting topics Virstyne
I'm in college and the culture there wants me to view people of color as oppressed. I push back against that because, though there's historic and systemic oppression that existed and still exists today, I'm not going to view people through that lens until I hear their story. I feel uncomfortable with the peer pressure to prejudice people before I meet them.. or even a group of people. I can have that historic oppression in mind but I reserved the right to suspend that until I see otherwise.
But good stuff! Groups have similarities but groups are made up of individuals. I think there's more difference within groups than between groups.
AND I'M SUPER STOKED TO SEE BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY! LONG LIVE QUEEN!
it's so funny how you put this - there is that part of us all that thinks all people of a particular culture or race must admire and like all parts of that culture or race - it's mad when you think about it!!
