Question and answer
how is stereotyping not negative?
To stereotype can be destructive, but not to stereotype can be stupid. [ If you were walking down a dark alley, would you be more worried by an old lady with a Zimmer frame or a couple of young men in hoodies? To walk out into the world without stereotypes is impossible. Not all stereotypes are bad, nor do all lead to action. The idea that they must do so is to undermine a belief in the
capacity of people to exercise self-control. ]
