As one helpful old white man to another, did you ever notice that when you are helping poor people they are more likely to be black? To point out such things is not racist. To ask why is not racist. To ask white people to help fix this is not racist.
I think the author is clear that modern-day white people are not to blame for how things are, but they should take responsibility to make things better and more fair.
Keep up your good work and please don’t take offense.
