I reject the racial link between the criminal's and their victims, in this case being mainly Pakistani men sexually abusing white girls.

Jimmy Savile was a "predatory, serial sex offender" but he did not "groom the nation". He was allowed to continue abusing because he was a 'celebrity'. Pretending that he "groomed the nation" allows those who knew to minimise and deflect their guilt.
