I agree with a lot of what's been said here. It's from Harry's point of view, so Slytherins are automatically going to be viewed as more bad than good. I also think it was not all that accurate to what I first imagined Slytherins to be, and more of a generalized description. However, by understanding the pressures behind Snape and Malfoy, it may be more reasonable of them to react how they did, given that they have strong personalities.

I'm not sure if what I just said made any sense. Overall, I feel Slytherins are inaccurately and unfairly portrayed, but try to remember that the books are from Harry's point of view.
