What are stereotypes ?
Stereotypes are everywhere in society . A stereotype is a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing: "sexual and racial stereotypes". Most common stereotypes are mainly with African Americans like are good at sports. Also all "Black" people are bad and dangerous . Another common one is "white" people are all trash and rich . Theirs a lot more out there but these are the ones i come in contact everyday . Stereotypes can effect peoples mental and or physical state of mind . From William E. Martin and Peter N. Thompson say the most stereotype uses today is racial profiling in the judicial system and the police. Many people dont know that they stereotype people but they do everyday . This is one of the main problems in the United Sates society today .
