Although, yes, I used to be a cop apologist and thought like that. "If it's bad to stereotype people for race or religion, then it's also unfair to stereotype cops, right?"


Yeah, I want 0 immigration currently. I mean, maybe 10,000 per year or so, but that's because I think we've got enough people right now. I find the argument somewhat compelling, but my personal opinion is that certain groups clearly do correlate a certain way (to your argument, cops probably do correlate a bit more towards being high-T for example, which brings with it certain other traits). By no means do all people of a certain group conform to every stereotype of the group though.

I realize that my rhetoric towards cops probably makes their supporters get defensive and close their minds rather than listen. However, people like Clay Travis insist to put cops on a pedestal when we should be demanding more accountability for them, and probably have no interest in listening anyway. I want to push back on Clay's apologist bias and knock them off their pedestal. It's not meant to sway people like him, but people who are undecided.


Fair enough, I do the same thing. I used to try to speak accurately but unfortunately hyperbole is the only thing that actually sways people.
Suck it Bears.
