an assumption of a certain group of ppl. the simpsons area perfect example of a stereotypical town. where homer is the fat lazy husband with a dead end job, marge is the housewife that doesnt have a life outside the house, bart is the trouble maker boy, lisa is the forgotten, misunderstood girl, maggie is the quiet baby who never speaks, mr. burns is the evil bossman, apu is the foreign shop keeper, and the polie are lazy ppl who eat donuts all day. all the other characters are self explanitory.

stereotypes seem to be an alternative to ppl who dun weanna get to know other ppl. so they classify them with out gettin the facts.
Common stereotypes:

1) All white ppl hate ppl who are different than them and MUST feel supiorer to them
2) All black ppl are ghetto hoodrats that dont attempt to do anything with their lives
3) All asians are smart ppl who hate everyone who are differnt
4) Muslims and middle easterns all want to blow up ppl
5) All black ppl are good at basketball
6) White ppl or goody goody house wife ppl who want to be more perfect than everyone else and hate it when other ppl get ahead of them in life
7) Black ppl are stupid and ignorant
8) Goths only wear black and theyre always thinkin about life, death, and commiting suicide
9) British ppl are some of the most snooty ppl who disgust everyone, even though they have some of the worst teeth in the world

these are just a few. there are a ton ton more.

To stereotype someone is to place them in a group with everyone of the same nation, color, heritage, etc. Most of them are negative and untrue, some are true but are still offensive.
Several Common Stereotypes:

Blondes are morons.
Asians are geniuses.
Asians suck at driving.
Jews are greedy.
Americans are fat.
Canadians all say "eh" instead of "huh".
British people are snobs.
British people have horrible teeth.
Blondes are sluts.
Black people are ghetto hoodrats with zero money.
Black people are super racist.
White people are perfect.
Irish people are all drunk potato eaters.

I'd like to point out that these are NOT my beliefs. These are some common stereotypes. There are still many more out there.

A stereotype is to catergorize a group of people. People don't usually understand that type of group or person , so they put them into classifications, because they think that person is only good at that , and thats the way it is.
Stereotypes =

Shopping is only For Girls.

Sports are only for guys.

An ignorant assumtion of a person based on looks or ethnicity


Stereotypes: that would come from a very ignorant person

(these are NOT my opinions, just a generalization of people who judge others this way)

Prep- "shes wearing clothes from abercrombie!, she must be a slut and have no individuality"

Goth-"They wear all black! They must be freaks who are trying to prove a point by being "different" weird"

Black people-"wow they have different skin color then I do!- That must mean that they are lazy, and that they like to eat fried chicken"

Poor people-"His parents only make 5 thousand a year!, he must be a "scumbag" and never take showers"

like I said...IGNORANT
