What do you think of black stereotypes?
I don’t know how to ask this question so let me explain my thoughts. Every memorial weekend in my city we have an Asian Festival. For many years it was a place to eat, have performances, free health checks, souveniers, etc. It was a place for friends and family to hang out and enjoy.
On my Facebook I noticed a lot more jokes about the Asian Festival saying, “They should call this a black festival with Asian food! lol” because of the rising number of blacks attending the festival. Last year and this year was the most that blacks ever attended and last year there was gangs and fights. This year there were shootings by a bunch of kids. On my newsfeed I saw a lot of Asians angry including my black friends saying they’re so embarrassed by hood rats that enforce the black stereotype.
My question is, why is it that when a number of blacks move into an area that the rate of crime rises and shootings? I have a theory that because minorities are poor the crimes rise. I’m not saying blacks are poor but I’ve just noticed in statistics. I feel bad for asking this question and I don’t mean to make anyone feel offended. But I’m genunitely curious, and also want other Black people’s opinions on this. I know for sure that there are PLENTY of blacks that are not like this but I’m just going by statistics.
