    I do not know why people stereotype German so much? Germans are not all blond and blue-eyed. Fasbender could even be a Spanish, French or Portuguese. On the contrary, I have seen countless dark and dark-eyed Germans, even though they are children of blond relatives. A totally alienated view and a lot of stereotype that German has to be tall and headstrong as well.
