    This isn't necessarily true.

    You can base conclusions off of correlations which were obtained through manipulated data.

    Social Science studies are chock full of this...

    Not worth the effort. Your entire premise isn't worth the time.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yes, it could be. I'm just in awe that a person who is in a position of trust (police chief) has these views, it's a bit disturbing and it must make some people of the town uncomfortable knowing he is what he is. People in the population expect the leaders of any law enforcement agency to be neutral to race, creed, sex, or political affiliations, this guy sounds like he could be biased in the handling domestic situations. How can people expect him to uphold the law with a view like he has, without prejudice?

    That's why I said WELL-RESEARCHED. Poorly researched conclusions reached through poorly obtained data and fallacious reasoning are bad, I agree.

    Well, I mean, c'mon this isn't the first racist cop you've heard of, right? Didn't OJ get off for killing his wife because of one of those?

    This is a SUBJECTIVE determination. Depending on which side of the fence you sit.

    It's this notion that you're racist and don't even know it. It's a way to accuse basically everybody of racism. They're the types that see racism in a talking Hallmark card that mentions black holes.
