To be realistic & understand that stereotypes within each race exist for a reason and are usually backed by hard data. To understand that although facts surrounding a particular race can sometimes be hard to hear, it's still a fact, therefore it is more valid than how you feel.
Ex 1:
Timmy: Some guy just robbed that convenience store! What do you think is his ethnicity?
Alex: Race realism-speaking, probably black. After all, they do commit around 50% of our nation's crimes, despite only making up 13% of the population.

Ex 2 (Not race related, but still relevant):
Kim: There was a terrorist attack earlier today!
Bob: Was the attacker a Muslim male? The most common demographic of terrorist attacks are Muslim men.

Kim: Now I understand the reason behind Trump's temporary ban on countries with high terrorist activities and that Trump didn't just target those specific countries because he secretly hates Muslims!

Race realism is the viewpoint that the human species (homo sapiens) is divided into local varieties that differ genetically in their biology (the races), similar to other species. These biological differences are the result of different groups of humans being separated and evolving under different geographic circumstances for long periods of time.

Among the differences observed in the statistical profiles of different race groups that race realism explains are skin color, stature, bone density, muscle mass and (most controversial of all) intellectual ability. Genetic/biological differences can be used to explain why different races show different statistical trends in abilities and social and economic outcomes.

The opposite of race realism is race denialism.
Race realism explains why the average black man is a faster runner than the average white man.
Race realism explains why the average East Asian person is relatively good at mathematics.
Race realism explains why certain races build more advanced and wealthy nations than others.

Race realism explains why certain races are more prone to being unproductive criminals.
