Category:Stereotypes of Arab people

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Stereotypes of Arabs, over-generalized beliefs about a particular category of people.[1] They are an expectation that people might have about every person of a particular group. The type of expectation can vary; it can be, for example, an expectation about the group's personality, preferences, appearance or ability. Stereotypes are sometimes overgeneralized, inaccurate, and resistant to new information, but can sometimes be accurate.[2]
