I meant to add the following to my e-mail, but I forgot:

I have a problem with the very idea that *we* are labelling *them*. If
history serves us well, they will find any label we put upon them as an
insult and will finally choose a suitable name for themselves, or _more
likely_ for us.

As an individualist, i refuse to label myself...
