Race, the distinction between members of humanity, is real. Genetically we can determine your race from a single drop of blood, and generally on sociological, psychological and historical grounds, we see a great many variance between these different races in creations of different societies as well as behaviors and activities. Fast forward to today and take a look at our society, it is an objective fact that Black Americans commit more crime than their white compatriots. In fact "Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery." "The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is Black and Hispanic." "Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving Blacks and Whites, Blacks commit 85 percent and Whites commit 15 percent." (Source: The Color of Crime). Actually this isn't just black on black or hispanic on hispanic crime, out of 19'293 interracial rapes, all of them were black on white. Now the reasoning for this is hotly contested some "progressives" would say this is because of "institutionalized racism" or poverty, because poverty obviously makes people rape. Others would say there is a more biological element, however this isn't what we argue today. Since the facts and statistics PROVE that Blacks are just more dangerous than whites, can it be justified to avoid Black Areas/Black People as a self defence mechanism, as the statistics clearly show it's in your best interest.

I am not exactly sure that racialism is but I shall assume that Pro is using it much like Sacha Baron Cohen, under the guise of Ali G, refers to in the YouTube video.

Anyway, the points Pro raised may well be true (we can't know as they didn't actually link any sources) but this does not mean that there are no objective reasons supporting racism (or racialism, which is no technically even a word).

The resolution does not state that Pro has to prove that there are no objective reasons for racism, only that they have to give one, single, objective reason against it.

Thus, I shall give one objective reason against racism and win this debate.

The objective reason against racism (or racialism) is that if split all the race sup form one another, they'd infinitely split from each other because some black people are browner than others and white people are of different hair color to one another, until we eventually have every single human individual in groups of identical skin color, hair our and hair style unable to interact with people of other races without starting a war. Thus, the objective reason against racism is that racism will lead to infinite regression until each person is either on their own or on a dysfunctionally small group of people who, between themselves, do not have sufficient expertise to form a collaborative society and any children they have that are too dark, or light, skinned are left for dead before they can grow to form the new generation.

It's justified or okay to avoid other races because of the danger they pose

I might take this, but I'm not clear on what you're trying to argue. Can you give me a 1-2 sentence explanation of what you're arguing for?
