What stereotype do you wish didn't exist?

 

 

A big (stereotype) is that black women are aggressive and angry. Some people often think black women don’t have mental health issues and for that reason black women and children are more likely to be turned away by hospitals or not be offered assistance. So basically black women suffer from mental illnesses and then don’t do anything about it because they’re scared hospitals and clinics won’t help them anyways and that largely based on the idea that black people don’t suffer from mental illnesses to the same extreme that white people do which is untrue.
