Explain. 2)Did you find a certain group stereotyped more frequently than others? 3)What effect do you think consistent exposure to stereotypes has on an audience? A) No, it wasn’t difficult at all. Stereotyping is all around us. Everyone does it at one point, its just that some people do it way to much.
