DO YOU AGREE THAT…National stereotypes are dangerous because they may provoke racial prejudice.Stereotypes contain a certain amount of truth.There is no such thing as national character and therefore the idea of national stereotypes is rubbish.The reason stereotypes exist is because people are afraid of diversity, change, and what is unknown.
