How do I smell?

"Middle class whites [...] may be surprised to discover that a common stereotype blacks hold of whites is that they 'smell like dogs coming in out of the rain.' Asians have a similar stereotype of Caucasions."
(Saville-Troike, 1976: 51).

I am going to be so paranoid with my Korean students now.

Um . . . well, that's really disturbing. I hope that's not what I smell like.
