Stereotypes: noun
1. a process, now often replaced by more advanced methods, for making metal printing plates by taking a mold of composed type or the like in papier-mâché or other material and then taking from this mold a cast in type metal.
2. a plate made by this process.
3. a set form; convention.
4. Sociology . a simplified and standardized conception or image invested with special meaning and held in common by members of a group.

Example: You're British and meet someone who doesn't speak English that well. Because of your normal stereotypes, you change the way you speak. As you learn more about this person, you may get your stereotypes confirmed or proven wrong.
Example two: You're British and meet someone who doesn't speak English that well, because she is from the States. Because of your normal stereotypes, you change the way you speak.

Prejudice: noun
1. an unfavorable opinion or feeling formed beforehand or without knowledge, thought, or reason.
2. any preconceived opinion or feeling, either favorable or unfavorable.

Example: You meet a Muslim so you automatically think know he is a terrorist. Your view won't change.

Racism: noun
1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

If you're not racist, there's usually something wrong with you. How racist you are depends on which definition you use. As long as you keep away from prejudice, you should be fine. Stereotypes is often a tool we use for communication.

There's a lot of other **** like ethnocentrism, but that's not important.
