• What are the positive aspects of the stereotypes, if any?
There are no positive aspects of stereotyping what so ever. Stereotyping are just negative rumors that becomes a prejudice comment in the end, either you meant to or not.

Due to stereotyping people that are willing or want to interact with other races or just new things in general, wouldn't want to end up doing it because of this ridiculous "rumor" that people starts. I really feel bad, because the people that we profile and say hateful things against are not what we all make them to be. At the end of the day, yes they do bad things and make bad decisions is because we push them to do so by stereotyping them.
