“Who? Whom?” It’s basic intergroup behavior to emotionally defend one’s perceived home turf.

The race thing was meant to incapacitate me. Essentially, he wanted the conversation to progress like so:

Him: “If you believe that therefore you must also be a racist.”
Me: “I don’t want to be a racist, therefore I retract my post.”

Instead, it went:

Him: “If you believe that therefore you must also be a racist.”
Me: “Yes.”

I perceive that he exited the debate because his debate skills are relatively amateurish. Name-calling was his trump card.
