Stereotypes are born of poor observations, those who are guilty of reinforcing such claims by proving them correct for themselves, need undo the damage they cause by chagning themselves for the better.
This assumes that stereotypes actually convey something.
No, it means that for those that the stereotypes are correct for, they need to use them constructively and change themselves for the better by using them constructively.
For example, the stereotype that black people steal things frequently, though it is wrong to assume that all black people are thieves, sadly it don't change the fact that some do steal things (Some of every race steals in fact). The chances of improving how people react to stereotypes is far more likely than the possibility that you can remove people's ability and habit of making stereotypes, in fact removing such a thing all together would be quite impossible, so it's best to simply focus on the possible in this case.
