Discrimination Caused by Stereotypes When I lived in a small town called Crestview, Florida, I was known as a skater or punker. This was because of the way I dressed, the way I talked, the way I wore my hair and the music that I listened to. Because I was known as a skater people had a preconceived opinion of me. What I mean is that people treated me differently because of their concept of me. Even though some people got to know me pretty well, some still thought that I was a stereotypical skater. I really was not a typical one, which is what I am writing this about. First, most stereotypical skaters do drugs; I won’t and never will, but because of my stereotype a lot of people thought that I did drugs. A lot of skaters are also very rude.

All kinds of people everyday are being discriminated against because of stereotypes. Second, my clothes are a little baggier than normal, and because of that I was treated differently. people did not want to believe, and because of that some people did not like me. For instance when I walked into a gas station, the clerk would not take hisher eyes off of me just because of the way I dressed, and the clothes that I wore, which was really annoying to me. So he probably felt kind of stupid. Also, when I registered for college at MACC Kirksville my hair was still blue, and the lady that helped me would keep asking me if I was ready for college. My friends and I know it was not his fault. Also, when I would walk into the mall in Ft. When I died my hair blue a cashier at the Express Depot would follow me around the store. Another example is here in Edina where I live now, people look at me all the time. I think that everyone should just forget about all stereotypes and the world would be a better place for everyone who lives in it . Another example is one day my friends and I were skating outside a grocery store called Winn Dixie which allowed us to skate there, and a cop pulled up and watched us the whole time that we were there. Now I am not as much of a skater, clothes and hair wise, because of all the grief that it has brought me, so I just gave it up. It was the stereotype of skaters that made him do what he did. Walton cops would follow me around all over the place because of my clothes and the stereotype that goes along with that.
