CATEGORIZING PEOPLE by Greg Hughes

Categorizing objects is much easier than categorizing people. The less we know about people makes it almost impossible to put them into categories. If we know only a few things about them, we might put them into categories before having a more complete picture.

We can more clearly get a picture of a well-known person who has a well documented history, but labeling or categorizing groups of people by the history of some members of the group is not only unfair, to say the least, but intellectually dishonest.
