Black / White / racism

It is actually worrying how pervasive "black bad / white good" is in society, and equally worrying how we then act all surprised when it plays back...

Topical example, at DefCon the good team are referred to as "white hats" and the baddies... well.

It's tedious trying to extract culture from language, but it's the unconscious use of bias that catches us out... although I personally suspect the really obtuse SJW efforts ("Baa baa diverse/rainbow sheep" etc.) actually do more to hurt equality than help, by making it seem like a joke...
