Ph.D, S. V. (n.d.). After the Rain How the West Lost the East. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Or, so say many of the readers, who react vehemently ? not to say mendaciously ? to my articles. They insist that I demonize, chastise, disparage, deride and hold in contempt groups of people simply and solely because they are born in a given geographical area or are of a given genetic stock. Few stop sufficiently long to notice that the above two accusations contravene each other. A territory as vast as CEE cannot and is not inhabited by one race. It is an historical cocktail of colors and origins and languages and bloodlines. Disregarding the pan-Slavic myth for a minute, a racist would find the CEE a very discouraging neighborhood. Am I a racist? If this is taken to mean do I believe in the inherent inferiority or malevolence or impurity of any group of people (however arbitrarily defined or capriciously delimited) just because of their common origin or habitation ? then of course I am not. I am not an adherent of genetic predetermination and I think that there is very little point in discussing fictitious entities such as pure races. That people are what they are made out to be by their up-bringing, society, and history and by the reactions of other humans to them ? is what I subscribe to.
