What differentiates the act of grouping people from the act of stereotyping? How can stereotping effect group relations? Give a example of stereotyping you find in a everyday life.

Grouping people assumes that most people in a group have similar characteristics. Stereotyping assumes that each person in that group has those characteristics. For instance, you may assume that Italian mothers are domineering, but it's stereotyping to believe that every Italian mother is dominant.

We have a problem in our community because young African-American men seem to be targeted by the police. Black men drivers seem to be stopped for violations that white drivers aren't.
