    I hear a lot of youths complaining about the stereotypes....but let's be honest...95% seem to fit the bill perfectly. I think we are by and large a load of bing drinking, disrfespectful, vacuous scumbags who worship tv shows and the internet

    95% ? Do you know what you're talking about by any chance.

    If five youth in " Hoodies " rob a shop and get caught and it goes on the news , then everyone who wears a hoodies is a thief or a possible thief , this is rubbish. I wear hoodies and I'm a just and respectful person , and don't rob shops.

    So no !.

    So where did you get it from? The Mail? You sound like someone who's just subscribed to all this silliness. As has been said, it's all ridiculous generalisations, because the media like the worst of us. They report only on them; in this way the rest of us (the sane lot) are demonized. It's so patronising.

    I have never come across such complete and utter rubbish, with all due respect and I am perplexed about how you have been brainwashed. I personally see the media as a tool that is abused by using it to manipulate the way people think. It's increasing sophistication unfortunately gives people more reason to believe what its showing to be true. The BBC broadcasts the same rubbish consistently and has very little variety in content, which demonstrates how narrow it is. Yet, its Britain's most trusted news channel. Give me a break.

    I don't think they're justified. I'd say that there are more well-behaved young people around than yobs, it's just that stories about young people doing good or just going around being average don't make for brilliant headlines.

    You're saying it's not the hoodies that you know (because you think that would be superficial, and you're correct) but rather the number of young people you've met. There is very little difference, and whether or not it's a wide range that you've met is entirely subjective.
