random thought. nearly every native american male i've met, none had facial hair. not even 5 o' clock shadows. don't mean to offend anyone, just curious.

Now im curious. None of the native americans "back in the day" had facial hair either. just long hair. Maybe they dont grow very much hair? This thread is :lol:

No. Actually, their face grows faster than their beards. They constantly have to shave off layers of skin.

how? my bestfriend is a descendant of the taino indians of puerto rico and he and his dad have BARELY any facial hair at all. and he's 19 close to 20, and his dad is like 53. my history teacher was of native american descent and he never had any facial hair either. not saying they can't grow any facial hair at all, it probably just grows at a much slower rate for them.

Pointing out any difference between ethnicities is racist, and you should be ashamed of yourself....

If this isn't sarcasm I would seriously think about re-evaluating your life. Races have differences...

Urm no it's not, Racism would be saying you're better than a native american because they can't grow facial hair, this is more like a stereotype.

i fail to see how it's racist. i'm not calling them anything degrading at all. and of course some ethnicities are gonna have some traits that other ethnicities may not have, or have to a lesser degree. doesn't make you racist for acknowledging that.

when something is true for pretty much 95% of the population of that race/creed/etc, it is no longer stereotyping.

We (at least, most of us) are not being critical. It is simple an observation.

No, they can be used to describe. Like me, I might be like "Yeah, that black kid that lives by me". Its easier to single out then saying "Yeah, that one child who lives next to me". I might have several kids who live by me. And I won't use the term African American because not all black people are African.

My understanding was that Indians didn't have beards because they pulled out their whiskers.

Its an observation, not stereotype or racism. Can somone provide and example of a native american with facial hair? maybe an old photo from the trail of tears or something?

It's funny that almost every time people talk about race on the Internet, there always needs to be someone stating they're not being racist or offensive.:lol:

On Topic: Now that I think of it, it doesn't seem like any Native Americans do grow facial hair.:o

People should use this emoticon (:P) more often. Sarcasm isn't easy to detect in the form of text.

I have this friend- www.google.com-he's pretty knowledgeable-though, sometimes a little dense...

He told me they can.

Just look it up on Wikipedia. Also, the definition of stereotyping: commonly held public belief about specific social groups, or types of individuals. So, you are indeed sterotyping, with a hint of strong racism.
