If this is not possible for some odd reason, simply take the stereotypee and walk away. Later on, tell the person that the stereotypes are not true, and then go tell an adult to do something about it. If you are being stereotyped by someone in a bad way or are being put through racist comments, you can choose to ignore them, and keep telling yourself that these words are not true, and you can also choose to stand up for yourself and ask that person how they would feel if they were stereotyped in a bad way. If the person refuses to stop after you have attempted both of these, tell an adult about it. They can help you. You can organize a campaign to help stop racism in your school. You can talk to your principal about making an announcement to your school, telling them all they need to know about racism and how to prevent it. You can give out informational brochures about racism and stereotypes in public places to bring the importance of getting rid of racism to your entire communtiy.
