1. Pig with the confederate flag hat. Plus, he is likely raising his kids to be just like him.

Great cartoon.

2. I was thinking the pig on the right

He's got weapons, the color of law and most likely a predilection to violence.

4. All of them --they are stereotypes

 

I try not to stereotype people --it's hard not to but at least I try .

5. None of them.

I don't know their actions or their words.
They could all be great guys.

9. All of them. "Male privileged" fellows all.

 



All you boys? You're going to grow up to be one of these scary bastards, and the frightened will have you to blame. The stereotypes of the fearful are all your fault.

13. I think it's intriguing that if you fear one of them, you're bigoted.

 

If you fear all of them based on the thing they have in common, you're realistic. You're sensibly attuned to, and aware of, your vulnerability from every potential rapist and batterer.

Some kinds of bias are okay.

14. Depending on the circumstance, all or none.

 

Sure, certain modes of dress or other elements of appearance might trigger my "keep an eye on that guy" response, but not fear. That's solely a response to their actions...
