In Reginald on Tariffs, Saki writes:
There are only two classes that really can’t help taking life seriously—schoolgirls of thirteen and Hohenzollerns; they might be exempt. Albanians come under another heading; they take life whenever they get the opportunity. The one Albanian that I was ever on speaking terms with was rather a decadent example. He was a Christian and a grocer, and I don’t fancy he had ever killed anybody. I didn’t like to question him on the subject—that showed my delicacy.
Why does Reginald state that Albanians "take life whenever they get the opportunity"? Was the basis of this statement a concurrently existing stereotype?
