I agree with you. If it is to pander to censorship.
However, it is for balance.
If you opened a book about French history, and the entire book was
about the french atrocities in Algeria in the 50's, then the book
would be biased, because if didn't mention the rest of the 1600 years
and the contributions of countless millions.
If the book's title was: "French atrocities in Algeria", it would be
apropos. But if the book's title was "The History of France" then
that would be wrong, no matter how correct the content was itself.
I hope you understand what I'm getting at.
