When really is there isn't any truth or so called facts that they say about the stereotyping. Though there are positive and negative stereotyping though don’t let the positive connotation deceive you.

Saying that we do not see color we only see a man.
However, we have these labels for a reason, where it might be because it happens a lot in the certain racial group or just made up. But, that gives no reason to make everyone be thought of that way.

People like Christopher cannot find their place in this society. Their attempts at conforming are met with rude comments and a lack of compassion. It is not difficult to avoid anger and irritation when in contact with autistic individuals, yet we find this easier than confronting our own pride and prejudice. We exclude the minority, and then blame them for not fitting in. All of this results in a society where we would rather turn towards acrimony than
Stereotyping is a serious issue. Stereotyping creates false perspectives of the world. For one thing, they make people miss out on opportunities and chances. For example, the stereotypes that all black people are dangerous.
