The best way to judge individuals is by their actions.

However the best way to judge groups is by the average actions of that group.

So while 'not giving as fuck about someones race' is both good and accurate, applying the same concept to entire groups is spectacularly dangerous and irrational.

I couldn't have said that better.

I might add though:

"We judge ourselves by our intentions and others by their behaviour." – Stephen M.R. Covey

My point being that if people deserve it, it can be worthwhile to consider their intentions as well.

Intentions only matter when actions have bad outcomes. There is less culpability if the bad outcome was unintentional. Otherwise, people intending to do good and doing evil are simply evil.
