Not entirely sure what you're referring to (?). It's not about writing them off, it's about recognizing fact from fiction and to refrain from elevating any one race to a false level of achievement because failing to do so is 'racist'. Yes, he is the smug intellectual type who is not forthright when pressed about subjects which may impact on his career, in fact he has been willing to kiss arse because he recognizes who his masters are, he picks his targets carefully. You give him too much credit. Are you even joking?, honestly, if you're going to start virtue signalling then I think it's a waste of time having this discussion.
