Perceiving Others Prompt 2

I am most likely stereotyped by my race. People seem to have the idea that Asians are REALLY good at math and are straight A students. People also say that Asians are very rich yet also very cheap. In reality though, I am terrible in math and not rich at all. I am however quite cheap, I try my best to save my money. People also think Asians eat really weird foods and animals but all races have their own culture and foods. Stereotyping can affect a whole community, it can make people think a certain group is a certain way, when in reality it could be the total opposite. I believe stereotyping can be a pain, either trying to fight with it or keep up with it. Like when parents expect you to be as smart as your other friends and family you try your best to keep up with it or when you get judged by the food you eat but you do not care for others opinions so you fight it. Stereotyping puts people in boxes, it does not let people explore and venture off into what they want to do.
