The difference is what race you have isn't a choice, OP was talking about people who consciously choose to be weird. I'm not agreeing with them, but that's a giant stretch to compare what OP says to racism.

It's the line of thinking I mean. It's not always a big leap to apply the logic of shunning certain behaviours to shunning certain people, especially when you blame said behaviours on particular races. For example, stealing is bad -> "black people steal a lot" -> black people are bad is an easy chain to make, especially if someone who is already racist comes along and wants to manipulate others to join them.
