But massive amounts of people DO fall into one category. Massive amounts of black people are democrats. Obviously not every black person is a democrat, but the overwhelming majority are, so upon meeting a black person, one could assume they are a democrat until receiving evidence to the contrary.No its the absolutism im talking about.The kind of attempt often in goodwill to make massive amounts of people fall into one category.
To rephrase, if forced to guess the political affiliations of 100 black people, the person who assumes that they are all Democrats will be accurate more often than the person who assumes the chances are fifty-fifty for each. In this way, the stereotype serves a function.
