Transcript of Stereotyping

What we can do as leaders to prevent stereotyping
As leaders, it is incumbent on our behalf to do as much as we can to stop stereotyping. One thing we can do is to encourage others to notice the individuating qualities of people. This is one of the best strategies which can reduce stereotyping. Once we notice what makes people unique, it weakens the sway of ethnicity and changes the whole mindset of our perspective on a certain ethnicity.
How Does It Affect People
Stereotypes can hurt people and make themselves think that they're bad or good. It makes people self harm and in extreme cases to kill themselves. It can affect people physcologically and make them believe in something that theyre not. In general it can just affect the way they go on living their life

How did stereotyping begin?
It is believed that stereotyping actually first became an issue when African American slaves were first brought to America. It originated in the White man's characterizations of plantation slaves and free blacks during 1830-1890. Their perspective on blacks took such a firm hold on the American imagination that audiences expected any person with dark skin, no matter what their background, to conform to many different stereotypes.
What is Stereotyping?
By: Odette Muñoz, Dollya Kidd & Yasmin Hoque
A stereotype is simply a widely held belief that an individual is a member of a certain group based on characteristics. Due to the process of over generalization within social perception, stereotyping leads to a great deal of inaccuracy in social perception.
Sex, race, age, sexual orientation, religion and physical ability are various categories which exist in stereotyping. The most prevalent and controversial forms are sex and race.
Some sociologists study the effects of the idea of "race" on human behavior. They also explore the impact of ethnicity. An ethnic group is a distinctive group of people within a country. Members share a cultural heritage. Ethnicity can be the basis for feelings of pride and solidarity. But, like race, it can also be the basis for prejudice and discrimination.

The word prejudice comes from the word pre-judge. We pre-judge when we have an opinion about a person because of a group to which that individual belongs. A prejudice has the following characteristics.
It is based on real or imagined differences between groups.
It attaches values to those differences in ways that benefit the dominant group at the expense of minorities.
It is generalized to all members of a target group.
Many of these stereotypes are a result of media coverage and a lack of research on the part of individuals. Ignorance can only be cured through a pursuit of knowledge and until people begin to pursue facts, they will have closed minds and never know the true beauty of other culture and beliefs.

How can it be prevented?
There is no actual way to stop stereotyping because its going to happen regardless. What we can do to BEGIN to control and hopefully stop it is by opening up kids to new cultures and teach them not to judge people.
