Yes, exactly. Intention arguments are utterly inadequate because people do a lot of things that aren't consciously intended - most body language, for one - but that doesn't mean we're not responsible for those actions. Sounds like that author needs to do some reading on implicit bias and keep on reading until the message sinks in.
