Top Ten Most Stereotyped Places In the World

The Top Ten

1 The Middle East

Many people stereotype this region as being full of terrorists and denying basic rights to women in the Muslim countries and greedy Jews in Israel. - JoeBoi

I have a Middle Eastern friend who lives here in the United States and she was treated horribly by some people. She was born five days after the 9/11 attack and the doctors at her hospital weren't treating her properly. They called her a terrorist baby and were saying that it was better if she just died. Her mother was so worried and left the hospital about two days after she born which was really bad.

Their cultures (including the few non Arab cultures) have been slaughtered by the media.

All these stereotypes aren't true at all. - EpicJake

2 Russia

It's a good country when you look past the stupid American propaganda. It has one of the best landscapes and there is just so much to explore. Plus, it's the biggest country in the world; no other nation could top that.

There are so many generalities, such as they're always drunk, they hate America, etc.

Idiots complain about Russia when 99% of them aren't how they describe them. - Juan-Luis

Good people, bad government. - RiverClanRocks

Just watch the movies! Russian guy with thick accent, wearing ushanka, carrying AK47, wearing some sort of communist symbol, driving a military tank, while drinking vodka, listening to the Soviet anthem, wearing military anthem, with the red square in the back, and has pictures of Stalin in the tank. Seriously, that was how it was in a James Bond movie. No joke!

3 Britain

To be fair, I drink a lot of tea and love a Full English Breakfast and Eton Mess, and I do have a deep accent. But a lot of people don't. I also don't complain about the weather and other minor irritations 24/7, nor do I have terrible teeth or snob about people of a different background. - PositronWildhawk

I want to make one thing clear: Not all British people drink tea. This also applies to the UK (which includes Northern Ireland). I have never like tea at all, nor has anyone in my family had a soft spot for it. We all don't have Mini Coopers, some of us aren't evil and well... We don't have monocles or bowler hats constantly on with a gentleman's facial hair package.

Also, a Full English Breakfast is lovely... But let's be honest, it has bacon for breakfast... Can you blame me?

"Do you have tea with the queen? "

"Do you have McDonalds with the President? " - Juan-Luis

To be honest, so many are true! But the whole posh thing really isn't... - gemcloben

4 The Deep South, USA

Common southern stereotype: All rednecks who drink beer, are racists, watch NASCAR, and shoot guns. - JoeBoi

I was born in Texas. It doesn't really matter because I lived there only two days. - AnonymousChick

"Well, most Americans are quite stupid, arrogant..."
Well, then...
You have a lot in common with "most Americans."
Now let's see how "hypersensitive" you are.

"Dem rednecks n' their stupid trucks! " As a person from the Heart of the South, this is a complete lie. - Juan-Luis

5 Africa

Need I say more? - Juan-Luis

This is not stereotyped. This continent is trash.

Crap continent.

I am going to my ooga boo jungle,I am going to cause Civil War now - CerealGuy

6 France

Listed as snobs, but they're only slightly high-class. They're not completely rude. - Juan-Luis

7 Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

The north side is what causes all the negative stereotypes.

Big sombreros, desert, charros, cactus, Chile, salsa, tacos.

People say this country’s people are dirty, only eat Mexican food, and have 100 cousins.

It's just not so urbanized.

8 Canada

I'm Canadian and I don't think Canadian stereotypes are super offensive unless you mean native Canadians

Canadian stereotypes aren't really too bad. Most people love Canada. - GhostBird

I think Canada is literally the only country nobody hates. - keycha1n

What's with all the hate on Canada? It's a nice place! - RiverClanRocks

9 China

People from here are being stereotyped as being terrible at driving, very smart, eat dog, and having high expectations for their kids. - JoeBoi

I don't know why so many people hate China even if all they know are stereotypes like people eating dogs or being uneducated. what man

"The World's Biggest Polluter" - xandermartin98

We don’t eat dogs and I am bad at math

10 United States of America The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

The Contenders

11 Australia

G'day mates! I'm an Aussie that loves to ride on kangaroos, eat meaty pies with tomato sauce and I favourite thing to do is hunting! (Sarcasm).

( note: I'm not a Australian/Aussie myself, I just get kinda angry because of there stereotypes because I'm a Australia lover.) Everyone I hear do a Australian impression say "mate" after everything... It's like saying you friends name after every sentence

Aussies DO NOT RIDE on kangaroos!

G'day mate. I'ma just grab my corkscrew hat an' ride me kangaroo down to my mate's house and pop a shrimp on the barbie. - Lem

12 Ireland

Hey Puga, wanna potato? - Turkeyasylum

Dunno were all the feckin' stereotypes come from. Paddy told me they were bloody stupid rumours made by eejits. It's a wee problem, so I'll solve it with mash, cabbage and Mrs. Brown. - Puga

13 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi.

NOT all Egyptians LOVE their golds.

16 East Asia

Did I ping pong your rice? XP - CerealGuy

See China

17 Germany

I'm a German Australian and hate the stereotypes for both countries (and stereotypes in general)

Commonly stereotyped as people who always wear lederhosen, are Nazis, drink beer all the time, and are fat. - JoeBoi

Poor Germany it is just because on the war.

Not all Germans are Nazi and not all Nazi are bad - CerealGuy

18 Minnesota

Minnesota is one of the only state with one of the largest population with foreign immigrants. Yet people will take the time to say it's racist against African Americans. People need to understand that "Minnesota nice" is accurate for any skin color. No matter what skin color or race, everyone from Minnesota accepts others and is genuinely nice to other native/locals in Minnesota. If it was a racist state, you would hear about the crime that is currently happening on a daily basis on the news in this state, but guess what ITS NOT. The police and neighbors is paranoid and over cautious to too everyone. It wouldn't change even if their was a race with Blue Skin color. Minnesota turns down at 9pm the latest on The week days and definitely not past 10 pm on the weekends. It's an overall family safe state, if you are really going to consider Minnesota a racist state, than you need to travel the world. Because Minnesota is the most welcoming state in the Midwest. Minnesota excepts ...more

19 Scotland

Not all Scottish people have Scottish accents!

We don't all have red hair, I hate haggis but I do play the bagpipes. I hate wearing kilts though. Love highland cows though and I do have a Scottish accent.

20 Switzerland
21 Yugoslavia

Remove Kebab

22 England

Not all British people are obsessed with the Queen of England!

British people love their English breakfast tea.

23 Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north. With a population of approximately ...read more.
