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. ]

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.
