mainly due to the way we dress, how we talk, our physical appearance, the car we drive...
Online, because of a lack of biographical information available on us, people often tend to draw their own conclusions based on a sales page, or our presence on this forum, etc.
I was inspired to post a related question here today as last night I was taking a walk
wearing a Bob Marley T shirt.
Two young ladies walked by and said: "hey, we like your shirt"...
immediately followed by... "do you have any weed?"
Now even though I fail to see the connection I doubt this would have happened if I was wearing a suit and tie.
Have you, or someone you know ever been stereotyped in a similar way?
