No one would care because it doesn't happen. When you see two white anchors (or at least one white anchor), it just seems 'normal' so there's really nothing to say. Bring out two people that aren't white males and people notice. If there were two women anchors, there would be sexist comments instead of racial ones.
Racism will not stop if you ignore it (I personally doubt it will ever stop). But, ignoring it definitely won't make it stop. The best defense against it is educating people. Trust me, when racist comments like that are targeted toward you or people of the same ethnicity, it's not exactly easy to ignore and shrug off. It's hard to 'get back to life' when that is a part of your life. It can take a mental toll.
