I don't believe that all stereotypes are negative. Or maybe it is that my idea of a stereotype is sometimes better referred to as a descriptive characteristic of a certain type of person.

Yes, I think so. 1) inroads demand concessions and 2) stereotypes exist for a purpose; they are shortcuts, albeit, sometimes racist ones.
