The connection is obvious and has nothing to do with racism. We have only commented facts.
You're dealing with selective 'fact' though. That's not a definitive list of all penalties and transgressions, it has been selected as those you remember that support your case.
No mention of Vettel hitting Webber in Turkey and getting away with it for example. Or of Schumacher hitting Massa in Canada and getting away with it. Or of Vettel pushing Hamilton off track in that same China incident in the pit lane and getting away with it. Or Vettel hitting Sutil in Silverstone to gain a place and getting away with it. Etc.
In the Barrichello / Alonso incident you also have to take into account that Alonso was able to continue, Barrichello was not. Rubens was also not the only driver to run wide at that corner and was on the harder tyre which made it much more difficult for him to slow down.
Vettel was the only person to bin it into a competitors car through a stupid and late swerve after choosing to go down the wrong side in a botched overtake attempt, taking out the competitor whilst being able to continue running. It is also not his first incident this year by a long shot.
The only one where I think the FIA got it really wrong was Schumachers penalty in Monaco - the sanction did not fit the crime when taking into account the procedural mistakes by the FIA that contributed to the confusion. But even there it was a panel of 4 stewards who came to that decision, not just Hill in isolation.
