    I meant to comment last time that I understand the white totem pole. I do think that there is a hierarchy even among white people with people of british, french, german, and scandenavian descent being towards the top and other European groups being somewhat beneath that.

    Also, I think its odd that no one has brought up that a lot of times these stereotypes tend to be more about money then about ethnicity but since a disproportionate number of people of certain ethnicities are poor, then that style becomes associated with the ethnicity. For instance, I’ve heard a lot of people talk about certain white guys “acting black” but it has nothing to do with being black. It has to do with the fact that they come from the same poor neighborhoods as a bunch of black people. So they associate the behavior with the ethnicity but its how everyone in the poor areas is behaving. It would be the same as referring to the Huxtables as “white” just because most doctors and lawyers in the 80’s probably were white.

    Looking forward to the final installment.
