My daughter came home from school one day and said, "Today we learned that we shouldn't judge people based on how they look."
I said, "Well, that depends. Is it right for me to treat someone differently if he has different-colored skin than me?"
"But if I'm a cop, and someone dresses, acts and talks like a gangbanger, I should probably expect him to be one, right? Or I could get hurt."
"So the lesson is, honey, don't treat someone different based on something they can't control. But you can absolutely pass judgment based on a person's presentation and demeanor."
Oh, darn, am I short circuiting the liberal indoctrination by pointing out the half-truths? What a rotten father I am.
