AP says it will capitalize Black but not white

The AP said it would not capitalize the word ’white’, after it changed its usage rules last month to capitalize the word ’Black’ when used in the context of race. ’White people generally do not share the same history and culture, or the experience of being discriminated against because of skin color’, AP said. The National Association of Black Journalists have said ’white’ should be capitalized.

Is there an issue in capitalizing the first letter of every race? I don't see why that's a problem. Thoughts?
