Of course there are white people who are racist, but implying that every white person is racist because they benefit from a racist system is absurd. A case can be made for people who defend laws and institutions that keep this systemic oppression going, but there are people who want to change law enforcement, drug laws, education, and pass legislation to grant more upward mobility. There are also people who are unaware.

And the whole bit about individuality isn't as straightforward as the author seems to think it is. There was a time when white people thought of themselves as a "we" and got outraged when one of their members got killed by someone of a different race. There's a reason most of us don't think like that now and those of us who do are looked at negatively. Hopefully we get to a point where no one has to think like that.
