You can counter sterotyping by first teaching children that all people are created equally and that we are all individuals. One should not assume that just because a particular person look, act, think, believe or behaves in a particular manner, that all people of that race, nationality, sex or religion will look, act, think, belive or behave in that same manner. People who have already been indoctinized with this type of perception should attend seminars or conferences that will teach them how to refrain from this type of sterotyping. Sterotyping hurts every society in a number of ways.
