When two black men pass each other that don't know each other there is always a level of distrust between them becasue of the stereotype and that is how strong the stereotypes are which is why he says typical. If a stereotype about you is created and is told enough to get you to react to it, what do you think it does to those that do not really know about you?
I'm not sure I get your point. People unfairly stereotype black people. That doesn't make it ok to say it's "typical" of a white suburban resident to do something like this.
You can't say, "Well, they unfairly stereotyped this kid. That's typical of those kind of people." You don't see the hypocrisy in that? One guy shot the kid, no one else.
If someone started a thread about some black teenagers beating up some white guy, and someone posted, "typical" that would be considered a prejudiced statement. I'm just wondering why saying, "typical" here isn't.
