I’m not racist, but…

I’m not racist, but I’m capable of doing or saying racist things unknowingly because of my privilege or ignorance.

I’m not racist. I can back up this claim by listening to people of color who let me know where I’ve erred. Even if, or especially if, it doesn’t seem like it to me.

I’m not racist, so I don’t have to get defensive and deny. I can admit that I may need work and take the lesson.
