    Fill us in.
    Expalin that lack of racism to the folks that had their stores looted, vandalized and burned for the alleged actions of another person of the wrong race. What, exactly, made those particular businesses the target of the looting? The power clearly rested in the hands of the mob doing the looting and not the "rich" shop owners, The idea that all in any group are responsible for the actions of any individual in that group seems racist to me.

    Blaming all members of any group for the actions of some does sound kinda racist. Whether the people are black, white or green makes no difference.
