I understand why the implication might be there, but I would hesitate to say that wearing a MAGA hat automatically makes one a racist.  In particular when you're an idiot teenager.

Correlation is not causation!

But I suspect there is still a hell of a lot of correlation there...

And how does that make them racist?

A MAGA hat isn't a guarantor of racism, just a strong indicator of likelihood.
The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.

And a very high likelihood that one is a douche.

I drank because I wanted to drown my sorrows, but now the damned things have learned to swim.

99%, I'd say. 1% wear them ironically.

You can be a douche but still innocent of starting a race incident.
Being lazy is bad; unless you still get what you want, then it's called "patience".
Hubris must be punished. Severely.

I had never heard of Black Israelites either.  I wonder how they get along with Moorish Sovereign Citizens.

The whole thing has a bit of Rashoman to it.  My tentative position is that the MAGA kids started it all by chanting their school chant to drown out whatever the Black Israelite was proclaiming on his bullhorn, the Indians escalated with their in your face drumming, and MAGA kids raised by mocking the Indian chanting.

How did the high school kids start it all, when they were being verbally accosted by the BHI'ers in the first place?

Irony is hardly a defense. Why is it ironic with a black fly in the Chardonnay?
You are gay.
