oh, of course not. Because the Baku are pretty White people.
It would've been interesting to see how people reacted had the situation been reversed. That the ugly people were trying to defend their homes from the pretty white people.

have you seen Redlettermedia or TVtropes' take on INS?

They bring up the fact that Picard reverses his position from "journey's end," and they point out that the writing and juxtaposition of the two makes it look(rather unfortunately for the character) like Picard did so because in THAT case it was non-Whites being removed, whereas in THIS case it was Whites being removed.


And of course in "journey's end" there was no hot White woman for Picard to rescue.
