You turn 'who happen to be' into 'because they are'. Wrong.

This is precisely exactly demonstrably the problem with racialist thinking.
You take something that happens to an insignificant number of people in reality, and then you apply it to a race of millions. Then you do everything possible to make everybody conscious of your little racial theory. You add racial consciousness by establishing a false causal relationship and substitute prejudicial associations instead of real logic. You turn 'who happen to be' into 'because they are'. Wrong.

Your Say

Well, yeah. Isn't that the theory behind communism? From all to all.

You know, because SOME people go to public school ALL people must pay for it. Same with the roads, poor people, everything else.

And all this time you thought democracy was about freedom, just because you get to bend a chad every now and then.

Silly knave.
