    You don't really understand the article. Like Watts you just plaster what seems to support your narrative.

    Perhaps you'd like to explain how that article supports racial stereotypes (you use it for profiling support?).
    From my link:
    Do stereotypes serve any positive function?
    Stereotypes are associated with a variety of different negative outcomes, but they also serve some useful functions. Primary among these is that they serve as heuristics in various decision-making contexts, and, in so doing, free up our thinking for other things. Yes, such heuristics can get us in trouble. But, to the extent that our understanding of group differences is accurate and we realize that group differences cannot be generalized to individual members, stereotypes can help us navigate our social environment.

    That was/is precisely my point.

    There are far superior ways to navigate ones social environment. That's like "Social navigation for Dummies". It's a way to gain bearing, but a rather pathetic one.

    Again, your personal opinion. In this case it's unfortunately mere name-calling when presented with evidence you don't like.

    These parries are pathetic. How, after this much explanation, can you not understand that even so-called positive stereotypes marginalize those left out.

    If there is a God in this universe, It will reach down and explain to you why stereotyping a race as warriors (basically, calling them orcs) is bad for society.

    I take it you're conceding the previous point. As to your apparent return to the broader topic, you have explained your view thoroughly. I don't believe your view has merit. I don't believe the topic can be accurately addressed in such categorical terms. It's that simple.

    It's pretty ****ing obvious the image being portrayed here.
    Yes, they are ready for battle. But, in a football game, not a real war.

    What's wrong with being precise and hard-working?

    This would be a better world if everyone had those traits.

    Not saying that other traits aren't also good, of course.
