Nurglitch: Pointing out the flaws in other people is a time-honoured way of deflecting attention from one's own flaws. Unhappy with your life? It's those damned minorities. Feeling unsuccessful? Probably the fault of those damned jews. Remember, it's not you, it's other people by dint of them embodying your own worth flaws.
BarkingUnicorn: While deflection is real, so may be "other people's" flaws and their effects on a neighborhood.
Gawdzila: BarkingUnicorn: While deflection is real, so may be "other people's" flaws and their effects on a neighborhood.No. Flaws attributed to an entire subset of people who are related only by membership to an ill-defined group of your own construction, by making decidedly unscientific observations of the local news, are not what I'd generously call "real". I'd call it crap spewed by prejudiced bigots. The fact that they attribute the cause to race first before any other reason is proof that they're simply biased against that group and liable to make any observation through that lens.It works something like this:[imgs.xkcd.com image 410x211]
