New York Times Writes About Lynching, Doesn’t Mention White People

The NYT wrote about lynching by white people without using the word "white"

This sort of oversight has also been interpreted as going hand-in-hand with a widespread reluctance to see White supremacy (versus individual racist acts by bad people) as a driving force in America's history, or a contributor the country's present racial inequality.

That's why, even if "White" was omitted unconsciously by writers and editors who truly wanted to do justice to the lynching report, it's still troubling because it obscures a key part of how racism works. When we're talking about the ways Black Americans were terrorized by these horrific lynchings, it's also relevant to note that White Americans were doing the terrorizing.
