This guy could be a racist. He certainly has some form of brain-rot that is causing him to act this way. Racism certainly could be the explanation.
Agreed 100%.

I wonder if those who are claiming this is (or is highly likely) racism would equally conceded that it is or is highly likely to be sexism (either solely sexism or combined sexism + racism)?

After all, police discrimination impacts males more than blacks (and it's additive so it's worse for combined), if we're going to be referring to other, imo, unrelated topics.
