Why are blondes projected as dumb?

dumb blonde? - I am sure you have seen this on TV or on youtube so I need not explain further.

I don't mean to be rude nor judgmental. No harm intended, this just a question out of curiosity. I know not all blondes are dumb because there are a lot of successful and intelligent blondes out there. I have heard and seen so many dumb blonde jokes and I have seen a lot of commercials projecting blondes to be dumb. Why is that so? Is there a scientific explanation behind it? Or does being blonde gives one the right to be dumb? Please share your thoughts and happy MyLotting to all!

That's not true. They just judge them that. Maybe there are a lot of famous blondes That's why it came out that way. I don't like people stereotyping people. There are alot here and i'm just sick of them judging others by how they look. I could just stick a knife through their throats or something.. That's exaggeration. :)
