Stereotypes, like it or not, are there for a reason. There's always SOME truth to them.
I'm not saying that they should be taken so seriously that they form a rule of how someone perceives another person who is stereotyped as x or y.
But it doesn't make sense to completely disregard them either. There's always SOME truth to them.

Stereotypes are based on truths, yes. But they are not ABSOLUTE truths. When you start using stereotypes (often negative), to judge others you don't give them a fair chance and might miss some of the good aspects of their personality. When you go into any situation or say with a negative outlook, chances are you will see things negatively.
For example, the BLM isn't trying to deny that black men are statistically the most likely to be criminals or harm police. What they're mad about is the STEREOTYPE that because a guy is black that means he must be a criminal and with bad intent. And this causes officers to literally jump the gun because they assume every black man is like the past 20 or so they've dealt with.0
