Top Ten Most Stereotyped Places In the World

The Top Ten
1 The Middle East

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.

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.

2 Russia Russia, or the Russian Federation (RF), is a transcontinental country spanning Eastern Europe and Northern Asia. It is the largest country in the world by area, covering over 17,125,191 square kilometres (6,612,073 sq mi), and encompassing one-eighth of Earth's inhabitable landmass. Russia extends across... read more

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!

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.

3 Britain

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?

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.

4 The Deep South, USA

It's not just the south, but all of the U.S. (Much of it is in the south, though). Dumb, ignorant, fat, lazy, self-centered, racist, violent, arrogant, aggressive. People hate on the U.S., saying it's a horrible country...meanwhile there are places like North Korea..

"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.

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

5 Africa

Often portrayed as poor third world people.

6 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to... read more

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

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.

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

Portrayed as sombrero wearing illegal aliens who steal jobs and eat tacos.

Sombreros, tacos, burritos. Which they have, but the ones you eat are Americanized, Tex-Mex items.

8 Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec,... read more

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

I think Canada is literally the only country nobody hates.

Someone thought I was Canadian because I was so polite!

9 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

Top 5 most ridiculous American (USA) stereotypes
1. All Americans are idiots and know nothing about the world.
2. All Americans are fat
3. All Americans are warmongers
4. All Americans think one American life = 1,000,000 foreign lives (okay that is kinda true)

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).

G'day mate, I love cricket, I have an army of crocodiles, I'm always drunk and I eat sausage rolls and meat pies every meal.

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

Portrayed as rats who start plagues and viruses and make bootleg products. Oh yeah, and they eat dogs for dinner.

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

13 Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest... read more

Not all of them are obsessed with anime, watch hentai, or that the only place there is Tokyo.

Not all Japanese people are obsessed with X!

14 Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

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.

15 Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806... read more

Ok people, Hitler's Germany was almost a completely different country. Not to mention that was like 80 years ago! I'm part German and when I tell people, they always say "your a nazi!" as a joke. That's not something to joke about. And I'm sure that very few Germans are proud of their past.

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

Poor Germany it is just because on the war.

16 Italy Italy (Italian: Repubblica Italiana) is a sovereign state and unitary parliamentary republic in south-central Europe.

18 Scotland Scotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain. Scotland is the most mountainous, and least densely populated country in the United Kingdom.

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.

Not all Scottish people have Scottish accents!

19 Minnesota Minnesota is a state in the Midwestern United States. Minnesota was admitted as the 32nd state on May 11, 1858, created from the eastern half of the Minnesota Territory.

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 anyone culture, any visa status, any skin Color and that is the reason why Minnesota has the most highest rating public school systems with the highest ACT scores in the Nation. That is rated on all the suburbs, metro and even rural communities. Their is no other state that accepts everyone as equal no matter what size of the city population. Everyone is consider a part of the laid back and Minnesota culture. That is why people who live or migrate to Minnesota do not leave Minnesota. This is coming from someone who has lived in Minnesota for over 28 years, has a mixed baby and very proud of it. My family had lived in Minnesota for over 5 generations and I'm disgusted reading what people have the nerve to say about Minnesota coming from from another state. If you believe Minneosta is racist than you should take personal accountability for being judgmental and racist against others. Minnesota is the most accepting state in the nation and defiantly in the Midwest.
