Stereotypes Black People Uphold

- By

Black people are tough.

The notion that you’re not to be messed with, because you’re from the streets, and “grew up in hell, homie”, can certainly be an asset depending on where you are. But it really does depend on where you are. Thanks to stereotypical media and films, many are wary of black people, even frightened. This works in a black persons favor, like at a crowded bar when you don’t want to wait for a drink or when pulling into the last parking spot at the same time as someone else.

But tread lightly using this to your advantage.  Even if you did grow up in the hood, it doesn’t mean that you can go toe to toe with any stranger. Lots of black people get beat up or worse for believing their own hype.
