The first club is attended by achievers. Graduates and College Degrees. Military retired. High end factory workers and people without criminal records.

Later I was talked into going to another club. Same town,age group and makeup. The second club was full of dropouts. Thugs and drug dealers were lighting it up on the dance floor to the most vulgar rap you can find. Known murderers fresh out of jail were in the HOUSE.

I left the second club 10 minutes after I got there. Now I knew almost everyone at both these clubs and they knew me,so I know what I am talking about.

Here is my question,why should the people in club one be judge by society the same as those in club dose.

OK. Tell me why you think it is not true? I can tell it is and is not uncommon.

Everybody is judged by everyone else. Crying and whining about it won't change anything. You just judged everybody in both clubs in your OP?

Your missing the point I am trying to make. Every group has good and bad but one group seems to always be judged as a monolith. I'm just asking why is that?

Perhaps you should stop judging everyone in a certain group as a "monolith". Just because you do doesn't mean everybody does. Why do you judge folks this way?
