Cultural stereotypes[ edit ] British sociologists Mike O'Donnell and Sue Sharpe studied British Asian students and came to similar conclusions regarding problems faced by Asian youths at lower class schools. Where as Black British students were respected and admired by their White British peers as " macho ," Asian youths had trouble gaining this same kind of respect and status.
O'Donnell and Sharpe found that many Asian youths are stereotyped as weaklingswarriors or as a patriarch. The word thug originates from the syndicate and was originally used as a term for South Asian criminals. Due to the African-American hip-hop group adopting the name Thug Lifethe word Thug is no longer associated with South Asian criminals.
Many South Asian youths are often caricatured as rebelling against a society which stereotypes them as a model minorityas well as against their perceived strict upbringing. They are then further stereotyped as having poor social skillsbeing unable to speak to ordinary White British people and have poor listening skills.
This may have contributed to increased tensions with ethnic and religious groups in the West. Thus in colonial culture the 'native' or 'ethnic' is stereotyped as sly and indolent, lascivious and impotent. These stereotypes are frequently evoked with the descriptor, "disgusting".
The smell of curry is often used as a derogatory epithet. A commonly held view is that India is rich in culture but under-developed. There are many stereotypes concerning Malaysian Indians.

Some she interviewed claimed, "Before we were in extended families, but now we are all in nuclear families. Just a small house, their family and that's it. Relatives come and they go; they do not live in that house.

However, inter-ethnic and stereotypes-driven bullying of students of Indian descent was higher; the students of Indian descent were least likely to retaliate, report abuse to authorities or approach officials for assistance in prevention.
Stereotyped and bullied Asian Indians were most likely to accept suffering, emotional trauma and ill health problems. Negative stereotypes for Asian Indians included being presumed as unfriendly, cliquish, unemotional, weird, snobbish, uncivilised, terrorists and cheap.
Many of these stereotypes did not lead to inter-ethnic bullying, but some did. Social studies teachers can play a critical role in eliminating cultural prejudices, but instead typically reinforce stereotypes about cultures different from their own, and present biased information about Asians, thereby losing the opportunity for deeper understanding.
In numerous interviews of students of Asian descent, as compiled by Rosser, individuals of Asian origin were asked the following questions: Do you feel, as a student of South Asian descent, that your presence in the classroom had an influence on the manner in which the course materials on India or Asia in general were presented?
If Indian and South Asian topics were presented in your classes, what ideas were emphasized? Compare the coverage of South Asia with that of other areas of Asia.
Many Americans of South Asian origin who participated in the survey reported numerous stereotypes. Some sample stereotypes reported by Rosser, and others,   include the following: Wars, disease, population, Gandhi, Mother Theresa, female infanticide, flooding, and starvation; India was only thought of as a third world country—considered inferior and totally ignorant of world events.

Only lives of the poor were represented and the treatment of Asia showed only the problems.The Online Writing Lab (OWL) at Purdue University houses writing resources and instructional material, and we provide these as a free service of the Writing Lab at Purdue.
