  • This intolerance is usually caused by stereotyping ethnic groups.
  • A stereotype is the over-generalized belief that a certain behaviour or attitude characterizes all members of a group.
  • Stereotypes are learned, generally from family, the media and other people.
  • An example of a stereotype is “Turkish people are known for their hospitality.”
