“Stereotypes”-Liz Ammons

Stereotypes are when people categorize others to an oversimplified idea. Stereotypes are used towards individuals of a different race/ethnicity, sex/gender, etc. These stereotypes are present in everyday society and can especially be seen within our media.

The White Women’s Workout is a comic commercial based on stereotypes. The White Women’s Workout is based on a black guy chasing a white woman around, which gives her a workout. It is quite humorous, but very obvious of the stereotypes present of different race, specifically black men and white women.

    This is a great example of stereotypes. It is quite humorous, but it illustrates the stereotypes of both the black guy and the white woman. It gives very specific stereotypes. Good illustration of these stereotypes. -Seren Bezzant
