Agreed. Pathologizing racism both strips the racist of agency and others them as well. I can’t not have attention problems, but I have learned to lessen my racism in thought, word, and deed. And I was taught every last ounce of that. The definition of mental illness used in the OP’s essay is inaccurate and frankly ableist.
