    See how that works?
    Actually...that's a damn good point. Which makes us all...what? Flawed in some way with our perception?
    Still, even if the kid had a hoodie on, was walking a street at night, in a gated community on the sidewalk....common sense should make the brain click that this is exactly that..a kid walking on a street in a gated community. Not hiding. Not skulking. Not running from car to car and ducking. Does he deserve to be approached by a guy with a gun?

    Yeah... but not really...it comes with an attitude that is many times a front.

    Is wearing a jersey an "athlete's costume?" Should people automatically assume I'm an athlete?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
