Why would you say Hondas are good cars when I know of ONE Honda that sucks? Why? BECAUSE MOST OF THEM ARE GOOD... why waste time focusing on that RARE lemon? Why? Tell me why.... EDIT: Why NOT compare humans to cars? It if works it works. Why compare anything to anything?

It's human nature to do so when you don't know the individuals, but hear plenty from the group in general. It's easy to hate what you don't know personally.
