“It affects how likely” is not the same as it is the reason. I did read his post, and I do agree that the results do matter.
But racism is not a passive act. It doesn’t just happen. Something does not become racist because someone claims it to be. Either it(whatever it may be) oppresses someone SPECIFICALLY because of their race, or it does not.
That is my point. You are pointing to the results and saying, see, see here, this happened to a black guy, it happened to a bunch of black guys, must be racism.
You can’t accidentally be racist. You can accidentally cause offense, but that is not necessarily racism. Or do you feel that it is?
I am fine that we don’t agree. I would just prefer my arguments not be framed as naive. I am well aware of what racism is, I don’t need a lesson from anyone posting here LOL.
