‘Blacks are a bunch of uneducated violent criminals!’

You shouldn’t say that ‘even though it may be correct to some degree.’ You ‘could argue’ that they commit a disproportionate amount of violent crimes and ‘one could say they have lower levels of education’ which is borne out by the data. My point though is that ‘throwing out these labels’ is ‘no way to interact with them, even if one thinks there may be some veracity to them.’

Such thinking isn’t enlightened, it’s bigoted. I hope this clears up my point.
