This is my contention also. People get hung up on race, but it isn't race that determines your behaviour but power. Power is corrupting, and everyone is equally corruptible (generally - individual psychology is also a factor). White people (or any people) born into power can also be victims of circumstance (although victim in this case means a victim of ignorance and exposure to warped ideologies rather than suffering).
