And he has lived in the same apartment for 13 years, and works two jobs for as long as I can remember.

Mexicans on the other hand, I have been around all my life, and i can honestly say, I can not remember the last time I saw a non-Mexican cleaning a hotel room or mowing a lawn. I worked in the hotel business for 9 years and I have owned a home for 4 years.
great post! I agree with you the stereotype is terrible, and I don't get it either, and I'm guessing it's been around for a long time. I hear white people referring to black people every so often as being lazy, I don't know where they get that.
