Actually both the RBC's and WBC's are lysed.  However, unlike RBC's, WBC's have nuclei and those are what are counted under a microscope or even in a Coulter counter.

I just fiinished senior level microbiology at UNCW, and we used a premixed solution labeled wright's stain, then DI water.  Does that also contain acetic acid??  None of the cells were lysed for our WBC counts?
