Do we have to play Imagine? Yes, we do. Imagine the ‘boys’ were all white. The assault would have featured on every news bulletin for a week, been discussed solemnly on Q&A and inspired a thousand Tweets and a dozen columns in the ‘Trump’s America’ genre. Instead, it was airbrushed out of existence. The question – as ever – is why? Because white ‘progressives’ see blackness as an excuse for any transgression. African-Americans are seen by them to lack the moral and intellectual agency of whites. That is racism – impure and simple.

In the wider context of the Bettina Arndt pile-on – which revolved around the decency of her even mentioning a possible backstory to a murderer’s enormity – the torture and killing of two-year old Kaydence Mills by her own mother (and her mother’s ‘partner’) stands in disturbing contrast. This entire ABC report on that horrific crime plays down their culpability and shifts it to … everybody. Have a guess why.
