This a phenomenon in psychology
It is the greatest contributing factor to how an identity group behaves, as people within the group have greater influence on one another than those perceived to be on the outside. Ascribed status, such as race and gender top the hierarchy in this regard.
For example, my dad used to beat me. As time progressed, I learned to fear men who had similar looks as him. From his facial features to the way he dressed to details in his mannerisms.
If I noticed similar things, I avoided those men
As you should.
versus a single cunty classmate
Kids can't make the distinction that these things don't mean anything *neccessarily*
in fucking grade school
So they broadly profile people just to be safe
This is a perfectly normal thing to do
Everyone does it.
no, according to you its the comparatively "strong" thing to do
Yes, as I just explained. You can't protect yourself from something that you can't notice.
protect myself from a whinging little shit kid classmate?
oh perish the thought
The conclusion may be different. Maybe you respond only to that one bully, but maybe you also look for patterns.
My brain looked for obvious patterns, for example in the case of my dad.
wasn't even a bully, he just wouldn't shut the fuck up and leave me alone
That's not the biggest deal then
Oregon schools didn't really have bullies, they had ratty little provacative shits who just drew you out into faculty's line of sight so suddenly you're the bad guy
Would anyone here avoid a 20-man sized group toting ISIS flags?
Wouldn't even think twice
I'd pick up my AR and start shooting.
depends if I was armed
It's an extreme example, but that's based on what you know of them.
So, that's a form of discrimination, is it not?
ISIS is an ideology. anyone could be under that flag.
brood's whinging about race and shit
Fair enough, but we all know who it is most strongly associated with, the pattern so to speak.
except the argument against similar race baiters on the left is that Islam isn't a race
