I agree with this article but want to point something else out. It LOOKS like a form of anti white racism to not criticize non whites for their crimes, but it is actually a form of anti non white racism as tbose who turn a blind eye to crimes committed by non whites are treating them as children not responsible for their actions. Not criticizing non whites for their crimes does not show how enlightened one is- it shows how RACIST one is.
