There was a massive study on racism, and the media only focused on the part about white people 

If you’ve ever wondered whether black people fixate about racial discrimination too much, the reporting surrounding the study of African Americans’ attitudes toward race in America is a horribly revealing example of how white privilege reshapes, refocuses and recalibrates African American concerns to a subordinate place, elevating fake-news reactions of white people to pinnacle of the national conversation. Indeed, even when there’s supporting evidence, as in the case of this study, to demonstrate just what black people are shouting about, their opinions are easily and routinely drowned out by cries of nonsensical white fears.
