Stereotypes are considered to be a group concept, held by one social group about another. They are often used in a negative or prejudicial sense and are frequently used to justify certain discriminatory behaviours. More benignly, they may express sometimes-accurate folk wisdom about social reality.
Often a stereotype is a negative caricature or inversion of some positive characteristic possessed by members of a group, exaggerated to the point where it becomes repulsive or ridiculous.
Stereotype production is based on:
Exaggeration or distortion
Presentation of cultural attributes as being 'natural'.
Stereotypes are seen by many as undesirable beliefs which can be changed through education and/or familiarization. However, stereotypes need not be confined to negative characterizations about individuals or groups, and can thus have positive characterizations.
There are also genuinely positive stereotypes about groups. Some groups have, as a deliberate political strategy, tried to evolve new genuine positive stereotypes for themselves.
Discrimination is an unequal treatment of persons, for a reason which has nothing to do with legal rights or ability. Federal and state laws prohibit discrimination in employment, availability of housing, rates of pay, right to promotion, educational opportunity, civil rights, and use of facilities based on race, nationality, creed, color, age, sex or sexual orientation.
Prejudice is an injury or damage resulting from some judgment or action of another in disregard of one's rights; especially : detriment to one's legal rights or claims. It also a preconceived judgment or opinion, or an adverse opinion or leaning formed without just grounds or before sufficient knowledge .
It is only natural as human beings for all of us to be a little prejudicial about something.

I suppose your for most of it, but I will make it simpler.
Stereotyping is placing a group or a person in a catrogray (sp) E.g. all Scots are mean.
Disrimination is are prejudice that we but we put in to action, so are prejudice (negntive thoughts) are uses against a pesron or a group of people, and I think you missed a question where do we learn are prejudice if we are not born with them?

Please make your question(s) clearer. A bit of decent grammar would help.
I tend to close threads that make my eyes bleed

I think that Stereotypes are often based on fact.

What discrimination am I?
I'm an American citizen of Irish and French descent and I'm Catholic. So when you put all this together I'm a drunken, brawlin', womanizin', wine drinkin', surrender-happy Papist who practices hegemony in foreign policy. And if you can make sense of that, you are ten times smarter than me.
What an odd question....
