why is stereotyping racist because its ethnic ?

does that mean we cant have cartoons that feature:

Scandinavians with blonde hair and blue eyes

Jews with big noses

German women as either old, fat and hairy or young and busty

French people with mustaches, black and white t-shirts or onions

British people with bad teeth

Chinese people with mono-lids

Americans as fat

Brazilians as big bottomed

so on and so forth

every race is stereotyped very commonly every day why is it less acceptable if there black than any other race
300 men have died in lincoln county in the last 3 years...... but what you must remember is i did not shoot them all

Your first question doesn't make sense..why is it stereotyping because its ethnic?

I think I know what you are asking. It's not stereotyping because its ethnic..it's just stereotyping. But if the stereotyping is specific to a race then its racial stereotyping.
If you said all ex convicts are untrustworthy that's not racial stereotyping. if you said all scots are stingy, that is.

Second question, why is it less acceptable because they are black? I don't think any has suggested that it is less acceptable...now that would be racial discrimination!

All the examples you gave are good examples of racial stereotyping. I'm not sure that anyone would disagree with that.

Is racial stereotyping racism?... Probably. Is the most harmful? Nope. Do people care? Some do, some don't. If its demeaning in some way then its probably less acceptable e.g. Suggesting the French wear stripes..so what. If you are suggesting that all French people stink then I imagine they might get a tad more upset !!!

Discussions on race always seem to make people get a little excited. It seems to be a very emotional subject. Not exactly black and white
