In fact, it suggests the opposite. Because we are subconsciously racist, we need other people to point it out for us.
I agree, but it should happen naturally and not by imposing your views on others or angrily calling out others. This tribalism creates more tribalism and division.
The best way is to follow a single unifying culture, and have adequate exposure to each other. Familiarity eliminates racism. Otherwise these things can fester for hundreds of years.
A good example of success is Singapore. Their nationality is way more important than skin color, religion, or ethnicity. Sadly, in the USA and Canada we are marching in the opposite direction with muticulturality, ID politics, and pointing the finger at the other group in anger (as you state above). That will not work POD.
Virtue is more to be feared than vice, because its excesses are not subject to the regulation of conscience.
