Unpopular opinion: I think ordinary people should have rights to be a racist while state officials and people who represent the state shall not be racist

Does everyone working in the public sector represent the state in your example?

And does it apply to their spare time or private sector work as well?

If they are acting or speaking on behalf of the state, they can not discriminate the taxpayers. In their private life they may be racists but still it will cause doubts.

So if a Judge walks right off the bench and opens up his private Lemonade Stand on the other side of the road next to the court house with a "No Colored Allowed" it would still be allowed.

Since it is done in his private capacity and is not him representing the public at that time. But as soon as he is working as a judge again he can no longer let race enter into his decision process.

Interesting idea. We know about people that one of our most central tools for thinking is pattern recognition. If all people of one race have the same trait, we will connect the two.

Add to this that there are real differences between races, in the sense that statistically there are differences on average between races for several traits. IQ is a very well understood one f.ex.

As for the specific idea, I dunnow, I bet that practically you can get into all sorts of problems with the idea, like what Liberty Prime suggests (but it can get far worse).
257d
So maybe my approach would be "Understanding that there are differences between races is just realizing the truth, should be allowed for everyone, while discrimination is a different matter"

US history may be made soon about allowing race based discrimination.

There is no question that there are average differences in observed performance between groups - however - there is no current method of figuring out cause and effect of between group differences.
257d
Or in the used terms, knowing that some trait is heritable and knowing that there is differences between groups does not prove between group heritability, no good method for figuring that out yet.
257d
Heritability being estimated from 0-1 where the fraction describes how much of the variance in a group can be attributed to variation in genes for a given population and environment.
