I know that stereotypes don't apply to everyone in the race, and I think that is where the problem is. That when someone believes everyone in a race acts or does things a certain way than that person is racist. But if you know someone, and know that the stereotype does apply to them, is it still racist?Answer Question

being judgmental (profiling) of a person of questionable character, is being smart. i judge people on a case by case basis, but there are some "telltale" commonalities among thugs (for example), that should send up red-flags among all people! the same could also be said of biker bars--which are predominantly white males--just so y'all don't think i'm racist!
This is a logical. Not all bikers are criminals, (many Harley riders are dentists, lol) but if you walk into a bar with a row of choppers out front, and the place looks rough and the people make you nervous, leave. Don't worry about being judgmental or racist, trust your instincts.
