Check Whether or Not the Data Race is Benign

A benign data race is an intentional data race whose existence does not affect the correctness of the program.

Some multithreaded applications intentionally use code that might cause data races. Since the data races are there by design, no fix is required. In some cases, however, it is quite tricky to get such codes to run correctly. These data races should be reviewed carefully.

See False Positives for more detailed information about benign races.
