People often make judgments about people based upon where they're from or where they live. Stereotypes have long existed and still exist todays. People from the East coast are snobs, women from the south are spoiled and temperamental, Southern accents are often considered ignorant. People who live in public housing are often seen as lazy, and also as dangerous. People from Chcago are still seen as "gangsters" in many parts of the country. Thus, as you can see, preconceived notions about people based upon their social status, economic status, and even gender occur in out modern society.
