I get what you're saying (I think). But I'm not sure about the logical basis of saying that only black people can define racism.

Certainly, only black people can fully describe the experience of being the object of (anti-black) racism. But surely racism itself exists objectively, it's not just a subjective thing that only black people have access to?
