17. There are certain demographic characteristics...

...one is not allowed to point out, lest one be labeled "racist."

The problem is, not recognizing that African-Americans are disproportionately represented in violent crime statistics (both as perpetrators and victims) inhibits the effort to fix this situation. I'd even go so far as to say the only way highlighting those statistics can be considered "racist" is if it's accompanied by something like "that's just what 'those people' are like" or some other assertion that blacks are inherently violent or otherwise inferior. Ignoring the problem because the language that must be used to accurately describe it might be considered racist is itself racist. You can't fix a problem if you can't adequately describe it.
