    identify anyone primarily by their ethnicity/nationality. Trouble makers and violence-prone individuals who believe they are heroic representatives of some cause/nation/religion are usually not representative at all.

    Dzhokar Tsarnaev was primarily a loser and a jerk, and only coincidentally Chechan and Muslim. Just as say, Fred Phelps is primarily an ignorant bigot, and only coincidentally American and Christian.

    People who do horrible public acts, as flawed individuals, love to cloak themselves in racial/ethnic/religious garb to justify themselves. We should try not to help them do that.
