Ok, I see your point clearly, but my question is: What's Generalization use? I mean, if there are exceptions... what was the use of the generalization about pit bull dogs?? It just generated a prejudice on you that made you lose a lot of time that you could have enjoyed with your friendly pit bull dog. But you didn't hurt anyone with your "prejudice" against pit bulls, but when you're talking about people, you can really hurt someone by "discriminating" (I hope this word isn't as hard as "racism")(smile) him/her because of his skin without knowing his/her heart.
(I like this discussion too, because we keep raspect and tolerance in our words and that is the key to "build")
