Mailing lists for old, very antiquated attitudes: educational, but probably not in the way you intend.

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.
