FEATURE ARTICLES. THE POLITICS OF PREJUDICE. PT 2.

Handcuffed, Arrest, Oppression, Racism

The POLITICS OF PREJUDICE Works because it Allows REASON AND
LOGIC TO BE DISCARDED, IN FAVOR OF INNUENDO, RUMOR AND STEREOTYPES.

In Many Cases, it is a FORM OF TRUTH BY ASSOCIATION, A LOGICAL 
FALLACY THAT IS SO PREVALENT IN SOCIETY TODAY, THAT EVEN 
WHEN CONFRONTED WITH ITS USE AGAINST SPECIFIC INDIVIDUALS 
AND GROUPS, SOME PEOPLE WILL STILL BELIEVE THAT ANY 
CONCLUSIONS REACHED BY THIS IRRATIONAL MINDSET SHOULD BE
CONSIDERED FACTUAL OR TRUE.

We are not Talking About Profiling By Studying BEHAVIOR PATTERNS, EDUCATION, EARLY HOME LIFE AND ECONOMIC CONDITIONS etc,. that may be able to give us an UNDERSTANDING OF A SINGLE INDIVIDUALS ACTIONS OR MOTIVATIONS, BUT THE:

ATTRIBUTION OF NEGATIVE TRAITS TO AN ENTIRE RACIAL, ETHNIC, 
NATIONALITY, OR EVEN GENDER GROUP BY FOCUSING ON, AND SENSATIONALIZING, THE ACTIONS OF A FEW, AND USING THESE INCIDENTS TO DISCRIMINATE, OR DENY EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY
AND FAIR TREATMENT, TO THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE CONSIDERED MEMBERS OF THIS PARTICULAR GROUP.

Perhaps the Most Effective Use of this Fallacy, by INDIVIDUALS OR GROUPS 
WITH A SPECIFIC AGENDA WHO CARE LITTLE ABOUT HOW IT IS ACHIEVED, IS TO TARGET MEMBERS OF SOCIETY WHO HARBOR PREJUDICIAL ATTITUDES, BUT CANNOT FIND A COHERENT REASON TO
CONVINCE OTHERS THAT THESE BELIEFS SHOULD BE LEGISLATED INTO LAW.  IT IS THE:

                               JUSTIFIABLE EXCUSE DEFENSE.

We will look at this in an Upcoming Post.
