The MU incidents occurred off campus, weren't linked to any students, and weren't within the University's jurisdiction to "investigate". Public oppologies were given by the students who started rumors of kkk/white supremacist involvement and the "car scandal" was shown to be one student forcing himself onto a stationary car. I think the aqusation of racism just for stating an opinion just further proves his point.
wasn't the Mizzou president forced to resign because he was unresponsive to blatant examples of racial harassment that were occurring on the campus? Racist or not, he should have at least been investigated at that point. It sounds like you're just giving him a free pass because you sympathize with him (perhaps because you have been accused of racism numerous times throughout your life and feel unfairly victimized because of that).
here are a few examples for my question: BLM demanding Mizzou president to step down because he does not recognize his white priveledge, citing him as "racist". Not wanting illegal, improperly vetted immigrants here because the real potential of danger(to which people say that too is racist).
No. It's usually just a general observation (sometimes contrived in ignorance) toward an individual's character, suggesting that your statements have been constructed as "racist" by a direct observer. What you choose to do with that information is entirely up to you. If you interpret it as a demanding of compliance, then you have fallen into the self-made trap of viewing yourself as a victim to your immediate circumstance. At this point you should attempt to rethink your outlook and actively work toward regaining your autonomy
