Ah...my point exactly.

First of all, I have no evidence whatsoever that people are trying to fix their racism with religion.
Second, as you point out, there are people (think of Charlottesville) where people use religion to EXCUSE or JUSTIFY racism.
Third, my whole thrust here is eliminating racism, so Ozzy's second point is hogwash.
