There are two really big stereotypes that I think black people face. One of them being that we are aggressive or just some sort of violent creatures of nature. People think we are more likely to fight, argue, cause trouble, or fall into aggressive tendencies. The other stereotype black people face is that we aren’t smart enough and that isn’t always necessarily true. That isn’t true for all circumstances, and that can only be judged individually. We fall into titles of being aggressive and dumb and people think that we’re just gonna start fighting. When in reality these negative stereotypes are just inaccurate setbacks.
