So in your world, only murderers can be policemen, and only arsonists can be firemen, only pitchers can contend for the batting title, and only linebackers can be quarterbacks?

A quarterback is trying to throw the pass - the linebacker doesn't need to be able to throw well. He needs to be able to intercept or break up the play.

Similarly, the needed skill sets for white and black hats differ.
