So you shouldn't treat a policeman like a policeman because he looks like a policeman? You shouldn't give that person behind the counter your money just because they look like they work there? Or if someone wearing white robes and a pointy white hat and a mask came up to you, you would want to be his best friend?
The image we present those around use reflects our own attitudes towards ourselves and the way we want others to treat us.
1) Why is the pope wearing a mask?
2) If foreigners decide to adopt a uniform and badge then go ahead and notice they're clothes. And make judgements based on what they chose to do (ie get a job as a police officer and wear the uniform).
Not all police officers wear their uniform on duty all the time btw, doesn't mean they aren't cops anymore.
But the last bit is really the main point, What image did debito in the little escapade choose to present that made him look like a non citizen? I suppose it was because he didn't die his hair and buy contacts?
