What is a stereotype? A stereotype is making judgement about someone.
One thing that I learned that was interesting to me, was that we stereotype unintentionally.
Why we stereotype. Basically, as we here about people, we base them off the little information we know.
I don't really believe we can completely stop stereotyping, because we do it in our everyday lives, without even noticing.
How stereotypes get started: Names, race, cultures, and even the way you look. Something as simple as the brand of shoes you wear can make someone stereotype you.
