If you want to discuss a stereotype you have about a special country or place in the world, head on over to Reddit where they're several steps ahead of you.

We’ve often talked about Reddit’s power as a social learning tool.

Now, users on the section’s public polling section, r/askreddit, are teaching one another about all about the world’s cultures -- one stereotype at a time.

“What is one TRUE stereotype about your country/state?,” redditor OBVIOUSLY_A_KARMA_WHORE asked earlier today, to which he or she received a good 6,000 comments.

The results are enlightening in the way that any great swath of a generalization (er, “true” stereotype) can be. Mainly, though, they’re just funny (and, potentially, offensive).


India

Ireland

I'm drunk. Wanna fight about it? -- TheBossIsWathing

Belgium

No government for like 400 days and nobody gives a fuck. -- IWasFrozen2Day

Rhode Island

I guess the one true stereotype about Rhode Island is that it's too insignificant to have developed a stereotype. -- farceur318

Alaska

A while back, everyone got a sense of what a stereotypical Alaskan is like.
I can honestly say that while extremely unfortunate, nothing has been exaggerated.  -- CaptainBeBop

7 reasons why reverse racism doesn't exist
The state of race relations in the U.S., a country where people seem to be under the mistaken belief that we are “post-racial,” is dire. This week saw a young, unarmed black man killed by the NYPD in a stairwell, and a refusal to indict from a Ferguson grand jury. Responses to these events from those concerned about systemic discrimination against people of color also saw the revival of a familiar battle cry among my fellow honkies: “Reverse racism!”
