Actually, they're not red herrings. You imply that racist action by the government is OK as long as the racist action is used to combat racism.

It doesn't, but it helps keep the same mistake from being made again.

Wouldn't a better ruling say "You CAN'T consider race as a factor when sentencing"? Legally I’d say that’s definitely the best option. It just ignores what is the whim of the judge or lawyers. Which could be based on racism. As nice as that law is , it takes trust in the integrity of all ...

You can't redefine corrective actions by Government to be racism if they are combatting racism. Do you label all government punishment against criminals as crimes? Oh, I see your argument now.
