there will never be progress really in ANY social issue if we keep pretending that some group cannot be part of the problem.
we are all humans, with our flaws and limitations.
EVERYBODY can be a racist, misogynist, homophobic, misandrist or what have you.
nobody is immune to the type of ignorance that creates hatred.
But we keep pretending that is the case, and as long as we march to that tune, we will never truly evolve.

I actually watched the video. My family was effectively run out of our home neighborhood where we'd lived for 20 years by hostile black people that moved into the neighborhood. By the time we left, whites were a distinct minority and it wasn't even safe to stop at the local gas station.
That being said.....I don't have a lot of sympathy for the white couple on the NY subway. Look like the typical clueless millennials who don't realize that NYC is pretty much a no-go zone for white people and that goes double for public transportation. They refuse to acknowledge the truth that the US is rapidly re-segregating and because of it, they need to learn where the no-go zones are because there's a whole lot of places they aren't welcome.
Ignorance isn't bliss.....they got what they deserved!

The inane part of this whole "whites experience racism" palaver - is that none of these monumental displays of black on white racism, mention that laws were changed, amended and created to stop the institutionalised racism that deemed it an offence to be sitting in the wrong seat on a bus - effectively creating whole races of humans, persona non grata...not even giving them the vote - prescribing what doorways, toilets, service areas that particular races were to utilise exclusively...
Black on white racism - you poor things...
