  • Cultural Diversity -

    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. If you group them, you "lump" them together, so to speak. However, if you "stereotype" them you may have an incorrect "label" for them.

    Grouping = Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, etc. are all Hispanic.

    Stereotyping = all Mexicans are lazy. (I HATE to hear that!)

    Let's first look at the definition of stereotype from Dictionary.com.

    "4. Sociology. a simplified and standardized conception or image invested with special meaning and held in common by members of a group: The cowboy and Indian are American stereotypes."

    Stereotypes tend to be negative -- but not always. Another example of stereotyping -- this time a more positive one -- is that Asian students are smart.

    Grouping people uses more objective criteria -- such as many Eastern Asian immigrants have high educational goals.

    Another example of grouping -- many of the people of Dutch ancestry in my city go to Reformed Churches.
