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.
