why do people say "racism is a direct result of ignorance", when its actually a direct result of being around large groups of non whites?

    That's probably because racism is far less prominent among high IQ and highly educated people. Excepting minorities is a matter of viewing them as individuals rather than people who seem different which indicates they are not from one's own clan or pack. Accepting minorities requires some critical thinking and intelligence where ignorant people can't get past their animal like distrust of people outside of their own clan. In that case they exaggerate all short comings of minorities and ignore all short comings of people of their own race. Racism is definitely a direct result of ignorance.

    Because it’s not a broad generalization toward groups. Because someone’s skin is a different color and distinguished as abhorrent is demonstrating ignorance.

    Kamala Harris is the only presidential candidate to the best of my knowledge who has openly promoted racist and sexist policies.

    Most racists rarely spend any time with non-whites.
