So to sit here and pretend that systemic rape and abuse of children can only happen because people are scared of racist accusations is an absolute nonsense.
I don't think anyone is suggesting that it is the only reason it can happen. But there is no doubting it was a mitigating factor, the unknown element is how much of a factor it was. However small a part it played in the decision making process is immaterial to an extent, the general point is that it shouldn't even be a consideration for those who need to make those decisions and take the requisite actions. Race should not be one of the criteria that they use when dealing with cases, it's as simple as that.
