    They understand that people of color have been and continue to be discriminated in all sorts of way.  From education spending to the judicial system and incarceration rates to joblessness, all is stacked against them.  And they do what the can to re-dress centuries of racism.  Not because there is some pathology with people of color but because we need to be all one and enjoy the same opportunities in life.  Accepting that there are white racists should not automatically mean that you accept the racist framework.  The current American framework has racism built into it.  The first thing that anti-racists of any ethnic group need to do is identify the problem and do what can be done to change this framework.  But to remove racism from American culture we need to act to eradicate it and to do so we need to understand the racist frame of mind even if we don't accept it.
