For any highly stigmatized type of person, the public is always going to hear (and care) exponentially more about those who exemplify the stigma through reprehensible behavior than those who break the mold of what they are expected to be and live reasonably normal lives. A vile monster is necessarily more interesting to most people than someone who is responsible and exercises self-control in spite of immutable elements of their nature. The monster is all that most people ever hear about, because it’s a far more exciting story to tell. Because of this, much of the uninformed public will assume that, for people with highly stigmatized innate traits, the monster is the only possible outcome. They will tend to not believe that such a person could ever be anything else.
Ah yes, those Damn Democratic Socialists of America, who are currently in power, are the ones who are deporting people and forcing them to live in vile conditions. Hence they’re worse than Nazis. No guys wait I’m a materialist I swear
