Opinions: Being on the other side of racial stereotyping

PATE: We stereotype the Chinese because it's just easier that way. We lump them in with Asians, in general, which is offensive both to the Chinese and to other Asians. We make jokes that they're intrinsically good at math, they're all short, and we even used to believe their slanted eyes made them all nearsighted and night-blind.

On the Runway: To wear or not to wear

No Laughing Matter
As almost everybody knows, a good sense of humor is a major turn-on. Cracking a joke can make even the dullest of situations entertaining, regardless of the setting.
