Question and answer
Q: How does Racial and Ethnic Groups define prejudice? Do you agree with this definition? Why or why not? Racial profiling is frequently in the news and is a prime example of stereotyping in action.
How does racial profiling relate to stereotyping? Explain.
A: While all stereotypes are generalizations, not all generalizations are stereotypes. Stereotypes are oversimplifications of people groups widely circulated in certain societies. [ In the United States, for example, racial groups are linked to stereotypes such as being good at math, athletics, dancing and so forth. So well-known are these stereotypes in the U.S. that the average American likely
wouldn?t hesitate if asked to identify which racial group in this country is known for excelling in basketball. In short, when one stereotypes, one repeats the cultural mythology already present in a particular society. ]
