If all you wanted was an opinion that could be held by racists, but also held by non-racists for non-racist reasons, I could have given you a million examples. Here's one:

Trees are pretty.

 ;)

My point? One of the problems I'm seeing in this exchange is the uncareful way in which some things are being worded. Red says your argument is "garbled" and you (margee) keep acknowledging that "apparently" you're not being clear. (I'm not sure how someone can actually be clear, while being "apparently" unclear.) I think it's quite apparent that this debate has been fomented by a lack of clarity.

What you're (more clearly) looking for, margee, I think, is examples of opinions about race -- or positions held with regard to race -- that can be held by both racists and non-racists alike (i.e. for both/either racist and/or non-racist reasons).

I'm not convinced that you have actually found one.
