    Any time you group races or individuals together and make a judgment about them without knowing them, this is an example of a stereotype. A stereotype is a generalized or oversimplified view, usually negative, of something or someone. Stereotypes usually show that a person or character has put little thought into his or her evaluation of someone else. Stereotyping a person or group can also lead to prejudice. Prejudice means an intense dislike of or hostility toward an individual or group, not based on fact, but on what a person imagines another to be like. Stereotypes and prejudice go hand in hand. Stereotype = a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing.
