Curiosity Killed the Stereotype?

There are so many stereotypes that have been around for a long time. Some of the time we don’t even know where they come from. For example, I’ve been to France a few times and I’ve never seen its inhabitants wear onions around their neck. The majority come from the media, it could be from one television programme which shows a character with all the traits associated with their culture. As then in snowballs out of control, because, as viewers, we can identify with their character, but sometimes it goes too far.
I don’t want to go into politics or religion too much, but I think its important for us to find out about other cultures. It stops ignorance, in my opinion.
