If racial stereotypes are only considered stereotypes, well then how did they come about as stereotypes?

For example, the stereotypes that are depicted in shows, movies, music...
*the white population are scared of African Americans, white people hate rap/hiphop, white people don't think that white people and any other race should marry/reproduce, whites owe the African American population some sort of restitution because of history
*majority of the African American population are on welfare, African Americans speak mostly Ebonics, African Americans predominantly live in poverty stricken neighborhoods
*most Hispanics are here illegally, illegal Hispanics receive a large amount of US government assistance over legal American citizens
*the Asian American population only owns nail salons and restaurants
WHERE DO THESE STEREOTYPES COME FROM? Do you blame it strictly on media or fact? I would assume these types of steretypes would be considered racist.
