Liberal vs. conservative views on crime and racism: Which of these is actually racist?

Conservative thinking: “I don’t want people shoplifting because it increases the cost of the items that I’ll pay for because I don’t steal. Additionally, it’s just a pain in the neck to have to find a store associate to unlock a cabinet and hand me a jar of laundry detergent or pack of socks. If you can’t afford these items, there’s plenty of charities and government programs that exist to provide you with shelter, food, and clothing, so please stop being an asshole and trying to get an extra $10 by selling that bottle of Tide to a bodega or on Craigslist or whatever.”

Liberal thinking: “We need to decriminalize shoplifting because it helps minority communities who are affected more by climate change and institutional, systemic racism. This minimizes their encounters with police so they’ll be arrested less.”
