    like i don't like arabs, they seem like bullies and stuff.
    and nigerians are rough,and boisterous. i dislike them. and they both like to pick on people they think are "smart" only since they hate that thing (hence their backwardness...)

    but then "society" says it's wrong to dislike other groups. when did this trend come in?

    it's wrong because you haven't met all of them and by saying that you are stereotyping all arabs which is the thing that's wrong.

    You're generalising a whole race due to stereotypes.
    And you ask why that's wrong, LOL.

    i believe it's right. there's no reason why it shouldn't be.

    Wow. You're justifying your reason to dislike a complete group of people just because of stereotypes. Yes, it's human to have stereotypes but not good to not try and change them.

    Surely some traits are very common among certain cultures and one can make a rough hypothetical judgement based on it- although to be sure you need to know the person individually.
    And when one says I don't like say group X, I think it is quite a valid point given that we suppose that it refers to "typical , common characterization" of people of a group and not every single representative.

    No there isn't that many Arabs in England. There are so many asians though like people from Pakistan, India and Bangladeshi.

    So in other words, you made a post asking why something is wrong, and then dismissed out of hand any standards for measuring right and wrong?

    The funny thing about is you dislike a group of people based on assumptions and I doubt you actually meet a Nigerian or Arab upclose and personal. How many Arab or Nigerians have you befriended or talked to as a person?
