It's about the collective whole, not based on a couple of individuals, that's why. It may not be pc but for the most part there's more truth in those stereotypes than not.
White people, whether right or wrong, did own much of the world and still do to an extent dominate. Chinese/Asian/Indians are cheap (I bet many would be proud to admit it too), that's why most are not affected by the credit crunch and are still better off than many other peoples. Black people....ah well, they keep blaming others for their own lack is what it is. In their case, they have a lot of negative statistics/data to back up the "stereotyping" which is then not stereotyping at all. There are more blacks in prison than any other race in USA per capita. MOST ghettos are heavily dominated by blacks. People are not just thinking it's true, IT IS true! Blacks are just in denial about it.

Because your system does not allow poor people to become rich. And black people were poor until the 1960s since white people ensured that they could stay poor.
There are white people in Ghettos too. Also Chinese and Indians are already dirt farm poor so getting poorer is not much of a hit.

The fack most of them aren't retarded fuckers who get themselves up to their necks in debt A: doesn't make them cheap... it makes them smart, and B: explains why they don't suffer the fucking credit crunch.
Oh, and you want stereotyping? How about the stereotype that White Americans are loud-mouthed, intollerent, racist, arrogant, bigotted, retards with no money sense at all...?
You seem to fit that stereotype perfectly!
*note* I don't believe that stereotype describes all white americans... but Brigit needs a kick up the arse.

Oh please. Some people do fit stereotypes (the ones crying the loudest about being stereotyped in my experience), but there's a reason that stereotyping is frowned upon -- it's not fair to judge a book by its cover, so to speak. Not that you can't judge how -some- people are within a few minutes of meeting them (I do so with almost perfect accuracy), but you have to actually meet them!

I don't think black people are in denial about being grossly over-represented in number in prisons and in poverty.
I do think that any sane person would disagree pretty heavily with your reasoning for it. They can see reasons like... a justice system that lets Bernie Madoff live in a house bought with stolen money while a first-time minor non-violent offender is several times more likely to serve prison time if his (her) skin is too dark. An economic system that makes any upward mobility nearly impossible (though downward is pretty easy). You know... stuff like that.

There's also far more CHRISTIANS in Prison...but I don't see you marching that one around...

"Chinese/Asian/Indians are cheap (I bet many would be proud to admit it too)"
Just because we know how to budget and work hard...

a mind far far away
White people, whether right or wrong, did own much of the world and still do to an extent dominate.
Not until the British Empire during the middle of the 20th century. Most of the worlds population are dark skinned people. Always has been.

Ok, YOU do not get to take Brigit's name, fuckwad.

You really think that China is unaffected by this economic mess? Really? You're even dumber than I thought.
