Needs a Better Description, Work In Progress

Old Woman: [holding a dead cat] Mr. Miggles. A Car hit him; he's dead.
Curtis: You want me to take a look at him?
Old woman: What are you gonna do?
Curtis: I'm a vet.
Old Woman: You don't look like a vet.
Curtis: You don't think Black people can be vets?
Old Woman: Oh, no, no... [Hands over Mr. Miggles]
Misfits (Note:Curtis is not a vet)

One of the best ways to win arguments by default is to accuse the other person of prejudice. With a simple "It's because I'm..." you can make a person shut up totally and completely, even when you're totally in the wrong.
