Statistics can be a basis for prejudice. If you judge every person of a particular group based on statistics that apply to the group as a whole, that's prejudice.
"You're black; here's an ad for a bail bondsman because you'll probably need one" is an example of that.
You're right that statistics in themselves are not racist. The misapplication of statistics can be racist.

Every cloud has a silver lining; you should have sold it, and bought titanium.
