Answers will vary, but should contain the following for full credit:
Laypeople often use the terms prejudice, discrimination, and stereotyping interchangeably, but they have specific meanings. Prejudice refers to an unreasonable or negative attitude held about a particular group; as such, it is closer to a feeling or judgment. Discrimination refers to unfair treatment of others based on their group membership; this makes it a behavioral manifestation of negative social relationships. Stereotyping refers to a mental shortcut or heuristic used to assign people to categories that help us make rapid determinations about an individual; in this regard, it is a cognitive activity. Prejudice, discrimination, and stereotyping therefore have parallels with affect, behavior, and cognition.
