  • 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.

    therefore---

    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.

  • Just because someone's from a "racist" state doesn't mean they're racist themselves.

    There's people in the Dominican republic who want to kill all Haitians, and a dictator in the 1960s, Rafael Leonidas Trujillo nearly accomplished that. Does that make all Dominicans racist?
