Racists are justified in what they do because they just want to be safe. For example, say I get mugged by a person of race X. Obviously, because I'm sane and normal, I don't want to get mugged again, so of course I'd avoid people of race X for fear of the same thing happening. My brain ends up correlating the image of any person of race X with the experience of getting mugged, which is a perfectly rational explanation of why I avoid people of race X.
