Isn't it supposed to be 'you're' in option one and not 'your'?

Probably not, it makes statement one the logical choice. ;)

No, I don't mean your MIL, your MIL is not in my thoughts and never has been / will be, I am tired of hearing about your MIL and quite frankly I don't even know how your MIL came to be a topic of discussion on this board anyway. AFAICR you just sprang her on us a week or so ago, and ever since then you have been presuming that yourself and everyone of us revolve around your MIL. Let me straighten things out: nobody cares about your MIL or your relationship with her, and we would all be much happier people if your MIL was never mentioned here again. MIL = TMI!

You're right. Which implies you are right. So yes, the heading was incorrect... but it's (it is) all the same in the end. A good reader will reader over mistakes, a bad one reads a sentence word by word, instead one should read a sentence not for words but in it's entirety.

I told you, i know. Like the girl in kindgarden who kept teasing me about my lunchbox, just kept teasing me, day in day out, and then when she needed me, she had the nerve to ask me to exchange my nice cucumber for her packaged cheese doodles :help:, but since i was a child with much compassion, I let her have my tasty cucumber and trader her cheesedoodles for a happy meal toy.

That is very true, but it puzzles me sometimes why native speakers get it wrong, when things like your of you're seem like basic grammar.

I've seen other people do it too - when David Berkowitz had a problem, Jews were very upset and scared. I've seen other people do it here. I dont do that. If i were to get beaten down by an Asian, i wouldnt say i got punched by an asian, id say id got hit by a Mean Guy, or likewise if a Puerto Rican Girl made fun of me, her Puerto Rican origin would not come into play. why do you'll do that?

That remains to be seen, but the answer options mostly suck in my opinion. If you want real answers, include real options in your poll. :p

I will give a serious answer on top: Only shallow people contribute the act of an individual to an entire group.

That's true. It's one thing to ask out of curiousity's or information's sake, but another to attribute only being possible by that group. In the example of the soldiers who admit to raping the young girl and killing her family, it's obvious that all people are potentially capable of raping and killing other people. It's good to know what is happening around town though. If for example, a person was unaware of the young arabs killed by electricution last year, they wouldnt have been prepared for riots that followed. Some behaviours of course, are more common in specific groups of people, so knowing what culture they are from can help you understand the behaviour.
