The CoS is no more racist than any other organisation. Individuals
within the CoS may well be racist, and as the the CoS has a very
defensive attitude towards criticism such people may feel more secure in
covertly expressing their racism than in organisations that have a
pro-active anti-racist policy.
Much has been made of L Ron Hubbard being a racist. It would be fairer
to say that he was a white American expressing the standard attitude of
his generation. He supported the South African government's apartheid
policies, as well documented at
because his OT powers were unable to comprehend that apartheid was
doomed to failure. Hubbard was remarkably ignorant about history, as
'History of Man' demonstrates, it being as full of factual errors as
your average neo-Nazi White Race Supremacy crap, or your average von
Danekin God was an Astronaut pseudo-Science gibberish.
Yes, there are are non-white scientologists. The CoS can tell lies to
anyone. Gullibility is not confined to white people!
