Is his anti-racism online book any good?[edit]

I've stumbled on it a few years ago and had the impression it was good: Resurrecting Racism: The modern attack on black people using phony science. But I'm quite biased against conspiracy theories and scientific denial, being inclined to just dismiss most of what the person has to say about anything, by virtue of possibly being the product of the same faulty examination process. Of course that's not an "argument", but just kind of an heuristic, and people can surprisinglly be completely bonkers about one subject and rational about others, and all the degrees in between. It's more like a red-flag/dismiss if I can find better sources or whatever. — Unsigned, by: 179.111.131.199 / talk / contribs

Not only do we hold things to different standards; we hold the same things to different standards at different times. And most revealing of all — we don't even realize when we do it, nor that we do it just as often as anyone else. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 13:22, 14 July 2017 (UTC)
