Right--because pretending racial disparities don't exist has worked out so well
for people of colour thus far.
But that's just it. They STILL make it an issue.
Despite any evidence of racism being involved in this case, people have spun it all up into this case of racism. They want it to be there, and so claim it is. When they do that, they are simply perpetuating the problem, by convincing people that everything is whites vs blacks. People like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton live off this divide and take any opportunity they can to expand it.
When I criticized Clinton for his policies, I was seen as criticizing him for his policies.
When I criticized Bush for his policies, I was seen as criticizing him for his policies.
When I criticize Obama for his policies, I am seen as racist.
I am not looking at color. I am looking at what they do.
The person who accuses me of being racist IS seeing color, and thus they make it an issue.
Until people stop going around accusing others of being racist, race will always be an issue.
