    I.e. Boxing entire races into rigid stereotypes.

    E.g. All blacks are dumb and criminals, they cannot get good educations and jobs because of this.
    E.g. All Arabs are suspicious, they hate America and want to bomb it.
    E.g. All Far Eastern men are weak and unfit for sex. Their women are submissive whores.

    Despite the sheer darkness of all of these stereotypes they pervert everyday American life still in 2014.

    Oh I thought these things were true? Surely the media would not lie to me with such stereotypes?

    Oh, surely not, perish the thought. Problem is, your everyday American believes such stereotypes adamantly.

    Do you not have the ability to read your own writing? Or is the irony lost on you?

    probably due to parents' mindsets being passed on as well as a sort of cultural isolation thing meaning that those views tend to be in the majority so are generally accepted

    edit: forgot to mention that this exists in many countries, not just in some parts of the USA
