He's trying to say that you don't have to conform to be successful, and I think that's the opposite of racist to be honest.
Okay i guess I get that you didn't mean it but I have to agree with Jans here.
Before, what you said, and correct me if you worded this wrong too but you kind of repeated it here, was that he showed he's a stereotypical black by being ignorant as he is. And that it's too bad that he's not conforming to the stereotypes you have of NONE black people being successful and influential.

That's what it sounds like to me, reading it aloud.
