Question and answer
• How is discrimination different from prejudice and stereotyping?
Stereotyping is overgeneralizing statements with people with similar characteristics. IE...saying all hispanic women have many children. Prejudice would be having a problem with certain people, but not actually doing anything to them. [ IE...saying asian women are ugly. Discrimination is the ACT of doing something harmful to certain groups of people. IE...KKK setting a blacks woman house on
fire. ]

race describe three steretypes for this word
Weegy: The Black Race The Negro, proper, inhabits all that part of Africa from Senegal along the coast of Guinea south of the Equator, to the 16th degree of latitude. [ Voluntarily the Negro never leaves this country, but, from being carried into involuntary servitude, millions of this people are now to be found in America, the West Indies, and other parts of the world. Their most striking characteristics are the jetty blackness of skin, black, crisp, curly hair, low forehead, high cheek-bones, flat, broad nose, broad and small chin, strong, white teeth. The skull is deficient in all the higher intellectual manifestations. The Hottentots and Caffres of South Africa, though black, and generally classed with Negroes, differ from them on many points. The Negroes are often called Ethiopians. This is a mistake; the Ethiopians were the inhabitants of the Upper Nile and Abyssinia, and though a dark, were by no meaus a black race. The Negroes have no written language; the Arabic is generally used for all business purposes. The Red Or Indian Race This race occupied the whole of the two Americas and the neighboring islands; although there were manifest differences in the people of the North and those of the South. The North American Indians are tall and straight, forehead low and broad, nose aquiline, eyes black and deeply set, full lips, skin a warm, coppery red, hair long, black, and straight. They show rather a lack of disposition than of ability to become proficient in the arts of agriculture and manufacture. White Or Caucasian Race The Caucasian race occupies all of Europe, Western Asia, Australia, and the greater part of America. Skin varying from a pure white to a rich brown, hair all shades, from blonde to black, beard full, soft and flowing, nose high and thin, lips medium. Surpass all other races in ability to comprehend and work out both mental and physical problems. This race is gradually but surely dominating the habitable part of earth ] (More)

What are the positive aspects of the stereotypes, if any?
Weegy: I don't think there are too many positive effects of stereotypes. [ Say you believe that all Southern Americans are hospitable, you may want to visit down south so that can be positive because you will increase tourism to the area, however not all Southern Americans are that way and you may put yourself into a bad situation thinking so. There can be positive and negative spin put on a lot of things ] (More)

• What is the difference between stereotyping and prejudice? Use examples to illustrate the differences.
Weegy: Prejudice is a tendency to prejudge something based on ideas/beliefs and feelings about the category a thing occupies. Those ideas/beliefs and feelings constitute a stereotype. Stereotypes are broad generalizations about the category. [ Stereotypes can be positive ["She's Asian so she must be good at math!"] or negative ["She's a woman so she can't be an effective CEO!"]. When we act on stereotypes we're exhibiting prejudice. That's called discrimination. "I won't hire her because she's a woman and we all know that women don't make good executives." Things can get complicated though. Sometimes we discriminate even though we may not be prejudiced or hold stereotypical beliefs. "I'm not going to hire her because my boss thinks woman don't make good executives." And sometimes we don't discriminate even though we harbor prejudices and believe in stereotypes. "I'm going to hire her even though I think women don't make good executives because I'll be accused of gender discrimination if I pass her by for a less qualified man. ] (More)
