  •  Although I think society has more of an interest (6+ / 0-)

    in correcting the stereotyping of minorities and other groups that have less power in this society, stereotyping is still stereotyping even when the object of it is a white man. In the case of the teacher's student's, they decided to judge him as a member of a group rather than as an individual and, consequently, were in error. Two wrongs don't make a right. To emphasize it, the students turned out to simply be wrong. It was a good lesson for them and one they can apply to any group in society.
