What if?

What if the the Penn State Graduate Assistant walked in on Sandusky with a white child, instead of a black child?  Does it make a difference? I think so.  If Mike McQueary had seen Sandusky doing those acts to a child with blonde hair and blue eyes, he might have been enraged.  McQueary decided that he should leave the child in that situation, and find another way to deal with what he just saw. The fact is that McQueary and Penn State did not view the victim as one of their own.  They did not see that little black child in the same light that they would see their own child, nephew, friends son, or neighbors kid.  I have a hard time believing that I, or anyone could walk in on child molestation and walk away.  But something about what McQueary saw made him hold back from stopping the act.  What if?
