comment Why is techeles not universally accepted?
This is not the same as kashrus of food, where there's an actual issur to eat neveila, basar b'chalav etc. Kala ilan involves an issur of deception, where someone is tricking someone else into thinking that this is real techeles; here the avaryan is the trickster, not the person who wears the fake techeles - unless they happen to be the same person and the fool thinks he can trick G-d. But if someone has determined, to the best of their ability, that this is "real" techeles, there is at least no loss in wearing it, and possibly an aseh d'oraysa to gain.

I believe the accepted answer judaism.stackexchange.com/a/8853/159 addresses your approach directly.

comment Why is Judaism not Racism?
That's a pretty weird comment, @Sam. You'll have to justify several sweeping statements in there if you want a serious response.

+1 for explaining nicely what the common practice is in Israel, though I won't give answer credit, since technically the question I was asking was about how one could eat chometz on that shabbos, not on what alternatives you have.
