I am so sick of this argument! Racist policies CANNOT be defended by saying that civilians of the same ethnicity as surrounding nations are responsible for those nation's decisions. This is not a logical argument. Everyone has human rights, no one or state can justify oppressing someone because another individual or state, that is of the same race has laws opposing their ethnicity. That's called tit for tat. And it's a game for children, not world leaders and governments.
