People are influenced by stereotypes in their communities, by peers and family.
In the 20’s and 30’s, mainly through the radio, a main source of entertainment and newspapers, a main source of news. Negative Effects Cultures, races and sexes are viewed in a discriminative way

Chinese drivers are considered bad drivers.

Two people are fighting for one job and the blond isn’t chosen. Inequality

-People who are of different race or culture may not receive the same rights or benefits as others.

-This can lead to war or a revolution People are bullied for their culture, sex or race
-The people who label others are also negatively affected, in terms of their behaviour People become depressed, emotionally scarred or commit suicide -People perform poorly when under the influence of stereotypes, whether at work or at school Stereotypes hinder people from searching for deeper human meaning and characteristics Positive Effects Stereotypes are helpful, as they help people understand and act towards a group of people

Stereotypes are useful in order to know how to interact with others

Stereotypes are easy to create, since there is a clear and consistent quality, such as skin color or gender that can be recognized When relating the stereotypes of today to those of the 20's, the main effects still are a part of society today.
Though in the 20's, the impact of stereotypes was at a much larger scale. Back in the 30's they believed that all blacks were
cruel. http://www.2knowmyself.com/the_effects_of_stereotyping

There are also some common stereotypes of men and women, also known as gender stereotypes, such as:

Men are strong and do all the work.

Women aren't as smart as men.

Women can’t do as good of a job as a man.

Girls are not good at sports. Cultural Stereotypes

Stereotypes also exist about cultures and countries. Stereotype examples of this sort include:

All white Americans are obese, lazy, and dim-witted.

Mexican stereotypes suggest that all Mexicans are lazy and came into America illegally.

All Arabs and Muslims are terrorists.

All Jews are greedy. All Asians are good at math. All Asians like to eat rice and drive slow. Stereotypes on Groups of Individuals

A different type of stereotype also involves grouping of individuals, such as Skaters, Goths, Gangsters, and Preps. Most of this stereotyping is taking place in schools. For example:
Goths wear black clothes, black makeup, are depressed and hated by society.

Punks have Mohawks, spikes, chains, are a menace to society and are always getting in trouble.

Girls are only concerned about physical appearance.

All blonds are unintelligent.

All children don't enjoy healthy food. Sexual Stereotypes

Sexual stereotypes have grown in society, suggesting negative views towards lesbians, gays and transgenders. Those who believe gay stereotypes also believe that homosexuality is immoral and wrong. What is a Stereotype

A stereotype is any commonly known belief about a certain social group or a type of individual. Stereotypes are sometimes confused with prejudices, because like prejudices, a stereotype is based on prior assumptions.

Stereotypes are often created about people from specific cultures, races and gender.

Almost every culture or race has a stereotype, including Jewish people, African American people, Irish people, and Polish people.
Sexual orientation stereotypes are also common, when you have negative views on gays, lesbians, and transgender individuals. Solutions for people being stereotyped include:
-Ignoring what they just said. Let them say what
ever they want and don't reply back
-Talk to someone about the issue as they may help you

Solutions for people stereotyping others:
-If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all
-Don't judge someone without getting to know them first
-If stereotyping is a way to release anger, find better ways to release it There could also be no solution. It's actually free speech. You can say whatever you want but it will affect you whatever you say. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110206145145AAnHV41 Another reason there is so much stereotyping is that the media affects you. It shows lots of stereotyping in different and twisted ways, such as what the whole race, culture or sex is like. Always remember to never judge a book by it's color -For example, racial stereotypes had a much larger impact in the 20's, particularly to black people
-Gender Stereotypes, mainly concerning women were significant, as women were regarded not as highly as men and did not receive as many rights Back in the 20's and 30's, some of these stereotypes existed, in the form of mainly gender and racial stereotypes. But through different trends in media and greater interaction with others, more stereotypes have formed. A solution to this would be to have more shows on television that represent minority groups in society.
This would increase positive attitudes towards minority groups.
