I mean you seem to think race wasn't relevant to the Cosby Show, which is about as bad a take as you could get.

It wasn't relevant to the show being good.  It had some racial messages put in there by Cosby, which is good and fine because they were well done, but it was a well-written show regardless.

What happens if we stop "worrying about race"? Will the racism and inequality baked into the system just magically go away?

I think we can worry about racism without being obsessed with race and ticking off boxes.  Like Jerry Seinfeld said, does every TV cast have to have the same breakdown as the census or else racism/sexism?  Can a period piece in England exist without a black character and not be racist?  Is Family Matters racist because the entire cast was black?  Does any sane person give a hoot?  If there's black characters in Bridgerton i don't really care, nor would I care if there's no black characters, or if all the characters are black.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.
