Please google: “availability heuristic”

It helps to explain a lot of crazy opinions held by people on this board who continue to rely on
outdated stereotype and erroneous rhetoric to form their “knowledge” base.

I think you meant to say their "lack of knowledge base"
The opinion of the majority is not the final proof as to what is right.

Perhaps you should show statistics that say you are right.

I don't know if there are statistics for Canada, but in the U.S. non-Asian visible minorities are up to 7 times more likely to be involved in crime than those of European descent.

I actually don't have an opinion on this topic ( not that interesting ). I have not seen stats to support either side of the argument, but I do know what the “availability heuristic” is ( didn't even look it up did ya ? already right and can't be wrong, can ya ?)

been wrong a few times and readily admit it but 90% of the time in the last 40 years when I read a fraud news item especially since ICBC came to be its always the same ethnic that is the purpatrater.NOT always but very high%
besides if its not interesting to you why make such a stupid comment?

I don't know. I think what they consider Latin Americans as cacasian, although I could be wrong. Also, I think by Asian they mean oriental, and not Indian and Arab. I would also assume that natives would also be included. We know from Canadian statistics that First Nations are more likely to be imprision than African Americans are in the States.
