I mean if you were to meet somebody in a dark alley.

either

a)a Caucasian full of tattoos, piercings and is 6-5 300lbs

or

b)a Caucasian that wear glasses, is Tim Lincecum's size

Which makes you more afraid and is it justified?


I love how Lincecum comes up in every conversation no matter what :-b


HAHA! That was my first thought when I read that.

But yeah I hope it's scripted but if its not I just feel sorry for them. It's one thing to be totally ignorant but to teach your kids that is just despicable. :-P :-t

The guy has a swastika tattoo if I saw clearly so it has to be somewhat real. That's just disgusting and I really hope they get what they wish upon others.

For me, stereotypes and probability are closely linked. I think stereotypes get a bad rap, all stereotypes aren't negative. It helps people understand the world around them. How the hell are you suppose to know everything about a person right when you first meet them? You have to piece things together to get some sort of understanding. As with everything else in life, going to an extreme is where people run into problems (ex. this video- stereotypes consume their life). Once you get to know a person, stereotypes begin to fade and a personal relationship is built.

As for your question, the larger caucasian probably has the greater probablity of doing some damage, so I think being more guarded around him would be justified.

Not me. That would mean they accomplished their goal of spreading hate.

I'd rather see them realize they were wrong.

That can be planted on as well, but it wouldn't surprise me if their beliefs were genuine. Pretty pathetic. Hate is never a good trait to send down to your kids.

You think they'd ever realize they were wrong?

Are they opposed to orthodontists as well? :-?

Bringing up eugenic theories hundreds of years old about how much 'better' or 'purer' you are always seems rather droll when the bringer-uppers appear to have some significant cousin-love in the family tree. Then again, perhaps their pickins were slim given their charming personalities?
