Does that mean that a person who says “the mean difference in criminality (IQ/physical ability/…) between ethnicities A and B is 0.1 per cent” may not be a racist, but someone who says “the mean difference in criminality (IQ/physical ability/…) between ethnicities A and B is 1000 per cent” is a racist?






The effect size doesn't directly translate to how important it is. A small effect could be argued to be very signifcant and a large effect could be argued to be of low impact althought it takes somewhat more mental gymnastic for that magnitude.

Someone could say that since good basket ball players tend to be tall one should try to reqcruit only tall players. That can easily be heightist. A non-heightist would like to check their running speed and team play ability which could easily make up for small to moderate shortcomings in height. Given similar running speed and team play ability a tall player would be preferable, but a non-heightist doesn't stop their data collection once they hear the player is tall.
