    Here is a practical test in logic for you. Most people who are arrested by the Israeli army suspected of terrorism are Arabs. Conclusion: the Israeli army is racist. Or again, most people who sit in American Jails are black. conclusion, the American law system is racists. And so on. This argument form can also be turned in reverse: Most terrorists are Arabs. Conclusion: Arabs are terrorists. Or, most criminals in the US are minorities. Conclusion: minorities are criminals. Where lies the fallacy? In that that from the fact that x is P and x is F, it does not follow that x is P because x is F. The Ethiopians are barred from the religious schools not because they are black, in the same way that the Russians are barred from the very same schools not because they are Slavic. Rather, it is because it is believed that they are not Jewish! Whether this is right or wrong is besides the point of RACISM!
