If you cannot understand the difference between saying that a cliché is almost universally understood to imply something (i.e. that many people infer something from it) and saying that the inference is in fact invalid because it is impossible* to infer what someone believes from what he says, there is nothing I can do to help you.

People make false inferences about what others think or believe all the time. You are guilty of it in this exchange, for example. You infer from the fact that I said that many people make the above invalid inference that I must believe it to be a valid inference.


*Or at least very difficult when you know little about a person, and the belief concerns something like race.
