You're worried about the opinions of those who assume that because a
person looks like or has a similar background to another person they
must therefore behave the same as that other person?

This is like saying that women walking home at night should carry
placards saying "I'm not a prostitute" just because some dumb bastards
might think that because some women who are out on the street at night
are hookers they all are.
