I would think that stereotypes come From observed facts.

The heart of your question is a lie.

For example, take the thread here about the over\under on shooting deaths in Chicago.  The city of Chicago has 800,000 African-Americans.  700,000 of them wake up each morning and go to work or school and generally are good people.  There are 100,000-ish of them who are lawless animals.  A stereotype which says the observed behavior of a few of them is a fact for all of them is a lie.

Whenever the observer deems it so.

Whether the observation is in fact "truth" is another question entirely - and not so easily answered.

100,000 out of 700,000 or 13% is hardly a few.

I think his statement was whether it's fair to attribute the traits of 13% to ALL.  13% is minority compared to 87% majority.

Should all black people be treated as if they acted like 13% of the population?  Is that fair?

About as fair as calling all White people racists because of something their long dead ancestors did.

Who does that?  
 

If they did it would also be wrong.  Some white people are racist.  But I do not think they are a majority.  
 

I think most people have learned prejudices - no matter what their race.
