Racism only exists as an idea in our heads. It's not a real thing in it's own right. Racism exists in so far as ideas exist. Racism is not a myth. Racism is used to rile people up but that is not the only thing it's used for.

Only against conservative white males
Abstract objects are real and not equivalent to individual ideas. Do you also claim math isn't "a real thing in its own right"?It's not a real thing in it's own right. Racism exists in so far as ideas exist.
You mean it's not a physical object? Yes, obviously racism is not a physical object. I think everyone understands that. Were you under the impression some people believe racism is a physical object; I've never met any such person, have you?
