Well, let's be fair here: Spock was a racist and a hypocrite in TOS' TV series; he went on about all of humanity's failings and flaws like they were the worst bastards in space despite constantly encountering beings who were worse, and he kept forgetting that the Vulcans were far worse than humanity EVER was in their past.
It wasn't until TMP that he realized that his general attitude towards things was wrong.
Thank you. Exactly
the point I made upthread.
