I'm a little uneasy with this method of explication:
--L. H. was born in Oklahoma.
--Several people I know have brought up anecdotes that are meant to prove that Oklahoma is full of racists.
L. H. is a racist.
I don't follow him closely enough to know whether he writes things that would tend to foster the view that he is a racist, or whether there is nothing in his writings that would prove it. I'm not defending him and I certainly wouldn't shy from condemning him, if it is proven. But I don't much buy into the reasoning shown above. If I'm missing something I would be glad to have it pointed out.
