Stereotypes, are, of course, horrible. However stereotypes would not exist if there wasn't SOME truth to them.
SOME Irish love potatoes.
SOME Jewish mothers can't cook and love their sons to death.
SOME German females have moustaches.
SOME Italian men love these things
in that order...
SOME....well, I could go on all day.
Point is, everyone has an idiosyncrasy that puts them under a stereotypical category, whether it be small or large. That's why we find it so refreshing when someone so easily vulnerable to being labeled says and does atypical things.
As for me? American. Jewish. Liberal. Middle Class. Living in the Suburbs.
Have fun with those
