It always seems that way. I feel minorities have a bunch of stereotypes to deal with. They just can't be normal in a predominantly white society. Am I delusional with this thought..or maybe is it time to move to another country? Maybe Brazil..prettier women..not as many judgments. I've had a good experience with those women.

I wouldn't say EASIER...but different.
I truly feel that people who are white, get more of a "blank slate" or "default" perception in the minds of the average person.
If you're a non-white person, there are stereotypes already built into the average person's mind before the MOMENT they see you (positive as well as negative stereotypes).
Of course positive stereotypes are an "advantage", and negative stereotypes are a "disadvantage".
As a black American male, I definitely feel that some people are already "on guard" or "cautious" (as in the antennae metaphorically go up) whenever I approach some ppl, whether it be in a dating sense or in a simple business/patron/everyday-person type of sense.
But at the same time I get more positive feedback as well (the whole "black penis is huge" thing, probably a dominant personality guy, other fetish stuff, etc.)
So it works both ways. Not necessarily BETTER or WORSE overall than having a "default" slate of the average white American guy...just different.1
