Second, that you took such offense at that remark suggests you were willing to read whatever you wanted into my comment as long as it gave you an excuse to vent against a non-existent threat to your precious tribal loyalty. I'll leave the specific anger-management issues to you and your court-appointed psychologist, but at no point there did I make any generalizations about all Roadie Culture™ being about groupthink or whatever. However, since we are on the subject, I would venture a guess that Roadie Culture™ is as prone to groupthink as the surrounding culture, which is to say plenty, but that it is not exceptionally so. It's just the way people are in general. For you to believe that a group of people sufficiently large as "The Roadies" is so significantly more enlightened than any other comparable selection of people in society (church-goers, Coke-drinkers, Honda owners, stamp collectors, etc.) that they wouldn't exhibit the same characteristics that plague group dynamics in general stretches credibility to its limit.
Third, I never said that Roadie Culture™ was racist, etc. Again, a case of you wanting to take offense and looking for any way to twist someone else's words to make that happen. Congratulations, your reality-distortion field is calibrated correctly and set to 11. The comment I was responding to was
"Well, there's just a certain amount of cultural cohesiveness that any small group sharing a specific interest will tend to anticipate. And exceptions can seem very strange."
I was making the point that this kind of reaction is akin to what happens in people who are racist, homophobic, etc. In other words, discrimination based on superficial differences is the common thread. It doesn't mean that roadies are racists. In fact, the person making the comment I was replying to was making a general comment about "any small group sharing a specific interest". How come you didn't start ranting about how I just called "any small group sharing a specific interest" a bunch of racists? Because you can't be bothered to read. Since subtext is clearly beyond you (really, still working on reading comprehension), my point is that I don't see much virtue in "cultural cohesiveness" coming at the expense of inclusiveness. You may disagree, and I would respect that, but instead you ran in and shouted "YOU'RE DISPARAGING ROADIE CULTURE™!!! EFF OFF!!!"
