A poorly written prop does not "Anti-Vulcan" make. The mention of Spock is very clumsy and out of place. He was second officer at the time.
He wasn't science officer? Like it or not but the file is there and seems to indicate a desire to mention race other than human (wait a minute, I should know since I undersigned he damn thing ).
Not sure if Spock is called a Science Officer in the Cage.

As I said the phasing is just too awkward to take seriously. It's like someone lifted it from the show's production outline rather than from a Starfleet report.

Kirk's statement doesn't strike me as being "anti-Vulcan" either.
Same here. The point was to reveal possible tensions between Earth and Vulcan prior to TOS as a source for anti-Vulcan resentiments.
Then it's not an example of anti-Vulcan sentiment in TOS. It's speculation with little to support it.
