(I'm going to say this very carefully so as to not come off wrong ...) Pookie -- I've heard huge generalizations about the typical Persian college-aged female from friends of mine who've had experience with the Persian communities in SoCal: essentially, they're considered to be really materialistic, and occasionally wooed by such things as expensive watches, jewelry, etc. To me, they just seem like you can't really say things like that about a such a large group in general, but given the well-off status of Persians I'm beginning to see how people could have made such generalizations. Not that they're right, but I can see how they'd originate. But then, all the Persians I've met don't seem to fit this stereotype; maybe because my persian friends are guys PS -- The instance my friend re-iterated to me was one occasion where he'd observed in class a guy trying to get this girl to ditch her boyfriend by said wooing. Enlighten me at your leisure, por favor ...
You shouldn't be entertaining such racist comments. You certainly should not believe them and definitely should not post them on a bulletin board. Imagine the same thread, but about things heard about hispanic women. What a two-faced hypocrite Mari "cutie" is. As the moral says, a snake will always show their true colors.
I understand where LS is coming from. Any sort of stereotype or assumption about a group of people, especially if you belong to that group, is very insulting. I think Marti is a cool person, but her comment came out wrong. IF some random person on here said all so cal Latina women had child bearing hips, she would probably take offense.
