Accusations of racism are very serious. The gravity of the accusation requires a stricter standard of evidence. If I'm accusing someone of disliking okra, I don't need a logically airtight argument bolstered by multiple independent factual sources. If I'm accusing someone of racism, though, I have an obligation to be damn sure I'm right before saying anything. Serious allegations require far more than just bald assertion without warrant.

Imagining ourselves capable of seeing inside someone's mind and perceiving racism for which there is no objective evidence is incredibly arrogant.

the Way of Humans: a Guide for Visitors to Earth
a Hypo-minimally Critical Review


This amply elaborated guide for visitors, merchants, and migrants to Earth projects an ethno-mental and socio-psychological emphasis pattern on the traditions, values, attitudes and deportment of homo sapiens. Structured in phases that severally treat almost all facets of Terran experience, the script illuminates the reader-audience with its perceptivity and truthfulness. Although it doesn't entirely avoid simplistic formulaic classification (and doesn’t seem at all troubled by it), the guide portrays the salutary, the unsound and the offbeat. It explicates the "why" behind human demeanor, etiquette, and conduct.
