若要簡單的答案：Unhealthy stereotypes can be negative or positive, even for the same group: Black men are generally supposed to be good musicians and basketball-players, but at the same time seen as aggressive and likely to take and sell drugs.
"Stereotyping, while seen by many as negative and harmful, has a number of beneficial uses for societies. One of these is in the purpose of uniforms which encourage a healthy stereotype to facilitate public service (such as a fireman or police officer) or a business. In many cases, it is not practical to know an individual in order to quickly make an important assessment, hence the need for people to make judgments about an individual based solely upon membership in a group (definition of stereotype) becomes important. For example: a person who is fleeing a fire and sees someone wearing the uniform of a firefighter will immediately make special judgments about that individual such as strength, knowledge of the situation, willingness to help, etc"

1 justification of ill-founded prejudices or ignorance
2unwillingness to rethink one's attitudes and behavior towards stereotyped group
3 self-fulfilling prophecy for both stereotyping and stereotyped group (White people treat black people in a more hostile way due to being afraid of them. Black people accordingly react more aggressively, thus confirming the stereotype...)
