A “stereotype” is just another name for “profiling” — deciding everything about a person based on their looks.

For this post,

  1. Read the essay “Napping While Black (and Other Transgressions)”. You have a handout, but here’s the link to the New York Times site.
  2. Write at least 7 sentences about a time when you felt like you were being stereotyped or profiled. What happened? How did you react? How did you feel afterward? Have you ever stereotyped someone else?

Be sure to click on the Stereotypes category box in the Categories menu on the right hand side, then Publish.
