Re: Bias in, bias out
But is it? Is it any different from blocking IP ranges on a firewall or dropping email as spam using its destination?
I get what you mean, I'm not trying to say that some people aren't unfairly targetted, I think that police randomly stopping black people because they assume they have a knife is wrong. But if there have been 200 stabbings in that neighbourhood then policing that neighbourhood and stopping people to check for knives seems proportional. If that neighbourhood is 90% black, does that change things? Personally, I say no, because I treat it as a local crime thing rather than a racial/cultural one.
