It sounds as though you are saying one of two things:

1. The belief that race is important is, by definition, racism, 
*whether or not it is true.* Hence it is stupid to consider that 
possibility, since there is a risk that the evidence will support it, 
leaving you with the choice between racism and self-delusion.

2. The belief that race is important is known to be false with such 
confidence that considering the alternative is a waste of time, hence 

Which of those describes your position? Or is there a third 
alternative I have missed?
