What stereotype do you wish didn't exist?

 

 

One stereotype that I would want to erase is that all middle-eastern people are Muslim. I am from the middle-east, and I’m a Christian. My race shouldn’t have anything to do with my religion because that is what I believe in. This stereotype bothers me because when other Christians ask about my ethnicity, they give me a weird look when I say I’m from the middle-east. I don’t want people to judge me because I have a different religion from what people think I have. I get to choose what I believe in, but at the same time I don’t want to be looked at differently.”
