I've been saying this sort of thing for years! Nobody listens, and when I respond ro articles on Medium, nobody seems to want to take me up on it.
The word is full of fools, as far as I can tell, so upon the rare occasion you find sombody who isn't one, it makes no sense to cavil at the shade of their skin. By the same token, a Black or Brown fool is no worse than a white one. Hence racism, anti-racism and any and all other 'isms' are a complete waste of time.
