I constantly hear black people say contemporary racism is alive and well and what's preventing most black people from reaching their full potential. At this time I think they would be better off ignoring the small amount that still exists and letting the rest of America start to see them as equals, not a people who complain, complain, complain, demand change, and accuse everyone else of being racists and holding them back.
Not that long ago black employees at one company became incensed at because of a RACIST logo on a popular storage box; there were many at their company. See the link:
Of course if you're not Black and frantically searching for ways to keep racism alive, you might not have noticed, but the Black community wasted no time protesting and got the boxes removed, after all they had KKK right on the front of them.
In case you're wondering, I think it is Henry Knaack who started making those boxes in the 60's and since he's not Black probably had no idea his company emblem was so racist, he just thought it was neat that every box has his name on it. To me all their discovery proved was that if you look hard enough you can find racism even where none really exists.
Their action became just one more recent example that people who are sick and tired of being accused of being racists, or having to make expensive and unreasonable changes to satisfy a group of malcontents will use to keep racism alive where it might have otherwise disappeared.
At some point you can actually do more harm to yourself by fighting injustices, than you can by absorbing the injustices and turning into people who no one can come up with good justifications for further discrimination. Blacks will never get there as long as they make themselves exceptionally painful to be around and work with.
