Grouping, to me, is like if you created a group called "medical professionals". You would include nurses, doctors, pharmacists, etc. One would be able to factually prove that these people are medical professionals.

Stereotyping is more where you assign certain traits to a group of people. For example, if you said every person who is racists lazy, that's stereotyping. One would not be able to factually prove that every single person who is raciest is lazy.

Grouping implies more of an objective reason for assembling people together. You might place people in a group according to age or race. Those are easily discernible characteristics that can be used to draw group lines. Stereotyping usually involves placing people in a group according to characteristics that they might not possess. More often, stereotyping assigns characteristics to groups according to common assumptions about the groups such as black people like watermelon and fried chicken or Mexicans are sneaky and lazy. Stereotyping can have a great impact on group relations if people judge those in other groups based on stereotypes instead of basing their judgments on the reality they experience with a particular person. For example, let's say that I'm a white kid who likes to play baseball but I don't want to play with my neighbor who also likes to play baseball because he is black and I've heard that black kids don't like white kids and they are all in gangs and kill people. Let's say the black kid next door doesn't want to be my friend because he has heard that all white kids don't like black kids and they burn crosses and hang the black kids if they can catch them. That's stereotyping. Grouping and stereotyping can both be legitimate in some instances. Stereotyping more often is not accurate.

Failing to appreciate the possibility/existence of differences within a group that is either foreign or even that you are part of doesn't allow solid relations with individuals but rather only with a discriminatory pre-established
