If race is a social construct then so is racism you can't hate something that doesn't exist

Hate is a mental construct not a social construct.

I'm an atheist and I don't hate god. I don't know any atheists who claim to hate god.

I think you're mixing up hating religion, or the effects of religion on some people, or something. I don't hate that either, so I'm partly just guessing here.

That's not logical. Saying it is a social construct doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Marriage is a social construct. Does it exist? Of course it does.

When people say race is a social construct, what they probably mean is that there is nothing

genetic that determines or proves what race a person is.

Anyone who says that race cannot be determined by genetics has clearly never studies genetics or the unique physical features of the different races.

Logic fail.
It's a social construct, yes. People observe this social construct and act on it. That behavior can be hated. Xmas is a social construct, too, but try and ignore it's reality when December rolls around.
