Those probabilities do not seem right. We at the G3C work on a standard 
to mark racism easily for those inclined to be born in the USA and fond 
of finding  racism in  every small  detail. For  this new  standard the 
committee has waded through all studies  and not found any evidence for 
your reasoning.                                                         

Please quote  the appropriate studies, so  the new G3C standard  can be 
adapted accordingly. But consider that  G3C standards adapt to the most 
progressive cultures, not just progressive-considering cultures.
