Ignorance sure is bliss, eh. Daniel Shaver thought the same. Get outside more.
Right back at ya, buddy. You appear to be ignorant of how logic works. A counterexample is used to disprove a quantified deductive statement, e.g.:
Let P(n) be the proposition "will be let off by police".
∈ white people, P(w
However, I did not make a deductive statement. Deductive reasoning depends on deriving true statements from premises that are known to be true, eventually going back to first principals. My use of the adverb "basically", along with the nature of the proposition itself, was the hint that I was arguing inductively, i.e. deriving a general statement from a collection of particulars. A single counterexample does not disprove an inductive generalization; only an aggregate showing a consistent trend contrary to the proposed generalization can act as disproof.
So pick up the dropped mic and try again.
