conundrum

do stereotypes exist because they are reinforced, or because we create an image we anticipate will be proved through experience? before you answer this question, think about how you would apply your line of thinking to the label "racist". i've hit a loop that can't be solved.

I don't think of stereotypes as specifically negetive. as human beings we tend to catagorize to help us understand things and people. racism is when we take the qualities that link us into a group and are negative toward others that do not share the same qualities.

yikes. . . making me think this morning. . . time for an entertaining picture post!
