This is similar to an earlier post I wrote on here, but I think it bears repeating:
I’m seeing a pattern here [on Mr. Wright’s post] of “This person seems to think X group lacks, on average, quality Y. That’s racist.”
But that’s not racist; it’s just either right or wrong. Racist is when, while dealing with them as individuals, you don’t judge them based on the individual characteristics as you see them when you meet.
For example, it is not racist, in this day and age in America, to avoid communities populated mostly by minorities. This is because, statistically, the odds are simply higher that such communities will be more dangerous than white communities. Forget the “why” for a moment. That’s just the truth.
It’s only racist when you meet an individual black man, learn quickly that he’s a pretty nice guy no more dangerous than a fly, and still hate him or believe him to be a dangerous criminal. Then you are judging the individual based on race, and not on their individual qualities. Only then is that racism.
