Re: A pox on people behaving sterotypically

It would be interesting to see such a lawsuit actually go through the courts: a selection that is racially biased on meritocratic grounds. There could be an argument that the protected class is not doing itself any favors if they and only they have been categorically shown to be the only ones misbehaving. Sorta like how one side says that the police are unfairly targeting black neighborhoods and the other counters that most of the calls they get come from those same neighborhoods. Kinda creates a Morton's Fork where the only way to be effective is to appear unfair.
