It's not "racist" to hate things that are associated (by some people) with a particular "race"- because nothing is really race-dependant. It's culture dependent.

Things like baggy pants sagging below the butt.

Things like NASCAR.

Things like gun ownership.

Things like eating dogs.

Because anyone of any "race", not just the "race"which comes to your mind, could do those things.

You can still hate the behavior, if you want. You can think the culture that values or promotes the thing you think is stupid is ridiculous or "inferior". You can think it's the dumbest thing ever. But don't start pointing fingers at people, just because they are of a particular "race", who aren't doing those things. They may think it's as stupid as you do.

Or people of a "race" not normally associated with that behavior may love it, too.

And others probably think something you do is offensively stupid.

Fortunately, it's not about stupid things other (possibly stupid) people do; it's about initiating force or violating private property. Everything else is just a distraction.
