Ethnicity?[edit]

"Arabs and Muslims" is listed as an ethnicity. While certainly "Arab" is an ethnicity, "Muslim" is not; it indicates religion. While it makes sense for the article to group them together to discuss stereotypes, it is not accurate for this template categorized by ethnicity. — Emiellaiendiay 21:40, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

I've now re-written as just "Arabs". Regards, Jagged 85 (talk) 18:29, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Antisemitism?[edit]

"Jews" leads to the article about antisemitism. All the other links lead to the corresponding "Stereotypes_of_x" article. There is a "Stereotypes_of_Jews" article but the link is to "Antisemitism". Not trying to be antisemitic of course, but stereotypes and antisemitic behavior are different things, and I don't understand why this distinction is made for only one link. I won't change it, but someone please explain it to me. Bigbrisco (talk) 22:39, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Wait someone changed it while I was posting this. Bigbrisco (talk) 22:39, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
Hmmm, the template still links to Antisemitism from the article "Brown People", which is where I first saw the link, but not on the template page itself. Oh well. Bigbrisco (talk) 22:43, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

This template is about the USA[edit]

Stereotypes of the Western World was changed to stereotypes of the United States. This whole template is about stereotypes of the Americans. In other parts of the world (like Europe) we don't use terms like 'Hispanics', 'Latinos', 'African Americans' and thus have no stereotypes of them, of 'Native Americans', or of 'white people' as it is used in the corresponding articles which use etymology to categorize people in the United States.
