Stereotype - A set of inaccurate, simplistic generalizations about a group that limits individual uniqueness and allows others to categorize them and treat them accordingly.                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Melanin - A pigment that effects skin, eye, and hair color in humans and other mammals.   People whose ancestors lived for long periods in the regions of the globe near the equator generally have larger quantities of melanin in their skins, making their skins dark brown or black and protecting them against high levels of UV exposure. In areas of the globe closer to the poles, people have far less need for protection from ultraviolet, so their skin is usually lighter in color.                                                                                                                                                                                         Prejudice - An adverse judgment or opinion formed beforehand or without knowledge or examination of the facts.
