Is it racist?

Racist: a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.

Is it racist to discriminate against people of a particular race IF the data shows that they overwhelmingly commit multiples more violent crime than any other race? Please discuss.

It's okay to discriminate against a particular culture if it has entered yours. For instance, you wouldn't want a bunch of cannibals living next door eh?

Yes, that is racist. The problem with that behavior is that it assigns blame or negative connotations to individuals based on things they can’t change like their ethnicity or skin color.

I believe that culture is a better metric for discrimination. It’s a better predictor of group behavior and criminality.

Some would say that leading violent crime statistics is something that can be changed.
